First things first

Most of the changes we have done so far are small simple ones. We had to change the lights on the house along with the house numbers. I chose a simple cylinder that shines light up and down. I chose a color that would tie in our dark brown metal roof, love that thing. Modern house numbers are super spendy. So I went down to the local hardware store and picked these up. I sanded then sprayed them a dark bronze color. They don’t match the lights perfect but pretty close. I have always liked the look of raised house numbers. I got some tubing used to connect ice makers and cut it into small pieces and painted them as well. I also had to get some longer stainless screws and just like that I had some modern house numbers.

Our new soon to be MODERN home!

Well I thought I would never get into the blog thing, but we have had many people ask for pictures of the house along with the question “What are you going to do with the place?” So I figure this will be the easiest way to let people see our new project.

The house was built in 1987 we don’t know much about it. The lady that lived here for the last 2 years spent a lot of money on a renovation. Some of the things she did we can appreciate but most of it does not go with the architecture.

There are many things we love about the house. Our favorite is our 13 skylights. We have a giant wall that houses 12 skylights and we have one in the master bathroom. The master bedroom is a 600sq ft loft that over looks the family room.

We also have an incredible 900sq ft deck with a great view.

Here are a few photos of the house as it was before we moved in, this will give you an Idea as you see before and after. Stay tuned, we have already changed quite a few things and I will be posting more soon.
