In more recent years our neighborhood has suffered. The rental houses on our block have fallen into disrepair and with that have come less than desirable neighbors. When the little house next to my parents came up for sale, my husband and I jumped at the chance to snatch it up. Thus began a new life and a new vision for our street! We rent a little house just around the corner from our new house, so it couldn't have worked out better for us to stay where we are while we take on this project. We have been looking to buy a house for several years, but nothing ever seemed to line up and be the right opportunity at the right time. Our town is very small, so I know this will sound silly, but I was really hoping to stay in the neighborhood I grew up in. For years I have felt a passion to stay there and to contribute rather than flee and let the homes fall apart.
I wanted to share these before pictures with you so you will be able to fully appreciate the magnitude of work it has required to save this house. It has definitely a labor of love! I can’t wait to share pictures of our progress and share my tips of how we managed such a big project on a small budget!
