Front Lawn – As purchased

While the road is not busy, it felt like the front lawn needed something to mark the end of the yard.

Front Lawn – Current

By adding a row of deer-resistant arborvitae, we were able to create a bit of privacy and block the small amount of road noise as they grow wider and taller.

Linoleum floors, formica counters, old appliances and cabinets, drop ceiling and no pantry.

Kitchen – Current

Pantry added behind fridge, all new appliances, new wood flooring, cabinets, soapstone counters, pass through bar, exposed beams and beadboar ceiling makes for a rustic yet modern kitchen.  And this door found in the barn out back made a perfect pantry (which used to be the off-kitchen laundry room) door once painted and cleaned up!

Former 4th Bedroom – Now Master Bath

The 4th bedroom was sacrificed in order to add a master bath, master closet and laundry room.  Note the vanity is a reclaimed buffet from a local consignment shop.  Great find!

Powder Room

After pulling up the linoleum floor in the powder room, we found there wasn’t much holding the toilet up.  This part of the house was once an exterior wrap around porch.  We replaced the flooring, painted ceiling and trim, replaced the toilet and sink, added shutters and updated lighting.

Hall Bathroom

The hall bath was straight out of the 70’s.  The only salvageable components were the mirror, door and the tub.  Everything else needed to be updated.

Screened Porch

No before pictures on this one.  However, the riverstone floor had been sealed with a poly of some sort and was peeling in some areas and impossible to remove it in others.  Solution?  Indoor-outdoor rug!  We painted all the trim, rewired ceiling fan and added antique decor.  Favorite room in spring and fall.

Laundry room

The laundry room was added using the back-end of the 4th bedroom which was recently converted to a master bath and closet.  Now there is access to laundry room from master suite and the hallway.
