One year ago today we signed papers on our second home. In fact, we moved in the same day too. We spent the morning loading up the U-haul and left our temporary residence near Boulder. We parked the U-haul at our “almost” home – and even left the dogs in the backyard to make themselves at home while we signed our lives away and go the keys!
Within hours we had the carpet ripped out of the two main bedrooms and began unloading all of our belongings into our new home. We’ve accomplished a lot in our second project home (we flipped our first!) and I’m so happy with all that we’ve done! We are definitely taking things at a more moderate pace this time around and being more conscious of budgeting for projects and not being in a hurry. And for that, I’m so thankful!
In honor of our one year, I wanted to share some before and after photos!
First Project: Ripping out the carpet to expose the beautiful hardwoods. The picture makes the carpet look decent – trust me, it was disgusting!
Bushes! We removed all of the hedges from
around the back yard patio – making the backyard
feel much bigger.
The front yard also got some updates.
The basement has completely transformed into usable space!
And we won’t even tell you how awesome it is to have a new kitchen!
