My "New" House

I know some of you know we've been in the midst of the WORLD'S LONGEST home remodel. Thought you might enjoy seeing the results. The first is a photo of the house as it was, then what we call the "destruction" phase, followed by one of it almost finished outside. Then I'll show you the new rooms inside.

And finally, Dave's and my offices. I get the bigger one because I actually work from home. (plus, Kodi and I share!)

Wow, it took me a minute to realize which side you added the new part on. It looks like you nearly doubled the size of your house - at least a third larger? Very nice! Looks totally different from the outside. You liking that new office? Looks wonderful. And I love your barn!

It IS 1/3 larger... and if you consider that we added the one story addition on the far end (the family room) shortly after we moved in, we've doubled the size of the house. It was a VERY little house to start with.

I love the barn (and the property) too... that's why we bought it. We figured you can always improve a house, but you can't add on to the property. It's lnad-locked (which is why we could afford it) but 5 dry acres within walking distance of the schools, the center of town, (such as it is... it's a LITTLE town) the beach and riding trails. Then kids came along, and the "house improvements" never got done.

And yes, I love, love, LOVE my new office!!! I have a gorgeous quilt that coordinates with the wall/trim colors (and was designed to go with the photo you can see on the wall) When it's finally hung, I think it will look awesome.

I'm glad to hear that you gals like the color of my office. Dave gave me grief about it. He still insists on calling it "the sun room"

It looks very nice and totally different. I am sure you are glad to have it all done. I love your property. I have this romantic vision of living in New England and the quaint towns. It would be so cool to walk to town. We can walk to the movies and grocery store, but it is not a town.
