We got multiple offers today (first day of listing) and our realtor has heard that a couple more are coming in tomorrow! Wow that was fast and now a bit scary, but exciting.


So we decided to make a change (move closer to family), and after a super fun 2-year remodel we put our house up for sale today. We're sad to sell our baby, but we're looking forward to a new project house and seeing our vision come to life again (we might be addicted). Here are a few pics, you can see all of the pics on my my blog and before pictures on my facebook (should work for everyone) Before Pics

ETA: sorry about the width, no time to resize!

Feeling Spaztastic!

I don't know if I've ever posted about this before, but your house renovation project has been an inspiration to me. I had said a million times in the past decade that I'M NOT DOING THAT AGAIN (we had a good run in the real estate market until the bottom dropped out!).

Now, however -- we're about a month from putting our house on the market, to buy a smaller "project" house. I want to see what I can do with a little ranch house, assuming we can find one that's a gut.

I've pored over your laundry room photos a zillion times. And your kitchen is DIVINE. And the transformation of your living room/stairway ... amazing stuff.

Good luck, and PLEASE post about the new house, wherever you land. I'm looking forward to it!

Wow, did you and your husband do it yourself? If so, you should both be interior decorators. Your house looks like a model home. I love it! You must enjoy renovating if you are going to do it again.

Did you use extra lighting for your pictures? I love bright houses and yours is very bright with lots of light (natural light). I love how you have the blinds open. So many people I know NEVER open/lift their blinds. I would go crazy in a dark house.

Beautiful job!! It will sell fast.

I am so seriously impressed! I'm glad I looked at the before pictures first. That house was a little skeery when you bought it and that just made me all the more in love with what you have done with it.

Can you tell me what color you did your laundry room cabinets?

Wonderful job on your remodel, can't wait to see what you do next.

I can't edit the OP on my phone, but we got multiple offers (above asking) today and our realtor is expecting a few more to come in tomorrow! Ack, wasn't planning on having to decide so quickly, stressful but super exciting at the same time.

On my best day, in my wildest dreams, I could possibly muster up about 10% of the talent you guys have. Your work is amazing, I'm not surprised at the multiple offers, and I am very, very happy for you guys. Thank you for sharing the photos with us.

When I went to edit my signature, the "Edit Signature" title was spelled wrong. So that was distracting and I forgot what I wanted my new signature to be.
