Here are a few before and after photos of the house...
This one was taken in October, before the house was even ours. Quite possibly the worst paint job I've ever seen. We saw it's potential :)
This photo was taken in June, after the much-needed paint job, new light fixtures and house numbers, and some landscaping. You couldn't really tell how bad the grass was since it was snowing in the before picture :) This was before the roof was replaced.
And here is the after picture! This was after the new roof, and some new plants on the baker's rack (finally!). We are very happy with how things have turned out. It doesn't look like the "foreclosed house" when we come around the corner anymore! We feel so blessed to have this home and we love it so much! We are very happy with the progress :)
