House Update: One Year

The end of August/ beginning of September marks one year since we moved into our house and began our renovation project. In honor of our anniversary, here are some before and after photos of our progress so far.

Things we changed: floor, paint, ceiling fan, trim, blinds, doors. We still need to finish the closet and build a Murphy bed/ bookshelves.

We haven’t done anything with the bathrooms yet, so I won’t bother with photos. And we’ve only done minimal changes to the bedrooms (ceiling fans and window treatments).

Things we changed: garage door, lighting, landscaping, fence, stairs to the backyard. We still need to replace the roof (+ add solar panels), repair and paint the stucco and trim, and landscape the backyard.

Well, that’s it for now. If you want to see more detailed progress photos, just search the categories (“Home Reno”) and tags (“Kitchen,” etc.) to find what you’re looking for.
