How exciting, and just in time for lilac season! Everything looks so fresh and new. Love the front door and glass panels; they look so elegant. The back door window looks like it can open and close. I like the new handle. The shutters add a nice feature as well. Do you feel just grand?!
I feel we're in a new house after getting the inside done last fall/winter. Yes, the back door has the slider window with screen & I have new curtains & rods to put up after painting the kitchen....which hopefully will be soon. Love that new front door!!!!
Unfortunately, the lilacs are done here.....weird spring......again!
All the windows are new as well.
What a gorgeous front door!
And it looks like a new house! And what a lot of work you had done!Now you can sit on the lawn and feel good - enjoy yourself!
Looks great Patricia! I also love your front door!~ Mindy
The new doors are great especially the front door with the glass panels. I liked the old siding but the new is more up to date, of course. I may have to go the new siding before long as my wood siding is deteriorating. Thanks for sharing.
That 'before' photo of the house is at least 10 years old so the siding was that much older.
This house is only 1100 square feet but all the new improvements have sure increased the feeling of size. We're thrilled with how things are turning out.
Patricia, that is about the same square-footage as our house. Our basement is finished and has a bedroom (my son's "man cave" lol), and there is a 3/4 bathroom down there. We are glad we never left our "starter home", since we are both 46, and it's been paid-off for quite a few years. No mortgage is a wonderful feeling!!!
Our basement is finished with a full 1 bedroom suite, full bath, (larger than upstairs) & laundry, which we rented out for several years. We got out of that a couple of years ago when the last lot of 'blindly religious idiots' gave notice. It was just too stressful & considering my husband's borrowed time issues, we didn't want to be landlords anymore. We moved several times with my husband taking job transfers so this is our 3rd home....which is also paid off. Mortgage free is a very nice flavor!!!!
Also been in this house since 1988.
We've been in ours for 22 years, and have done a LOT to it. Now it's back around to needing a new roof again, this time with a total tear-off, or whatever it's called. My husband can't wait for our daughter to finish her Senior year of college, because then we'll be able to pay for some more renovations.
Yours looks very nice!!!!~ Mindy
