Our Very Own Fixer Upper!

We purchased this home a little over a year ago.  After months of looking and looking the hubs called to say our realtor had a house for us to look at.  After about 15 minutes he turned to me and said let's do this.  He really wanted a large yard and an RV gate which this house had.  It didn't have the kitchen I wanted so he promised he could turn the ugly outdated cramped kitchen into exactly what I wanted.  I spent the next 3 days having panic attacks.  It was built in 1985 and really hadn't been touched since other than paint.  Every inch of this house was screaming to be updated.  Before we moved in we replaced most of the light fixtures and painted the bedrooms and main living areas.  We have slowly been working our way through updating a little bit at a time.  None of my before pictures turned out very well so these pictures are from the original sales listing.

Stay tuned for the after effects of what was literally our blood sweat and tears.
