Outdated Ranch home meets Southern & Simple Update...go figure

Last week I pulled out the interim photos of portions of the home in this Post.  As I mentioned, this project has been ongoing for almost 2 years, and I honestly could write a novel on the entire progress and happenings from start to where we are now.  I'm certain the book would keep you quite entertained as the story is almost unbelievable at times.  Nevertheless, we have come a LONG way since the demo party we had over 2 years ago, and we still have a LONG way to go before we can say we are complete.

Disclaimer: I am NOT a professional photographer, and my pics may include random household items, electrical cords, and will most likely NOT have the correct photo setting.

Below is a BEFORE view of the breakfast room looking from the kitchen





This is the AFTER view


Here is a BEFORE view looking from the breakfast room to the kitchen (opposite from above)



Below is the AFTER view looking into the Kitchen (still missing our cabinet cover above the built-in fridge)




Below is the Interim Pic of our Entry - In this pic the Floor had been laid and paint was up.



Here is the AFTER Pic of the entry



Below is the BEFORE Picture of the Living Room..this living literally had not been  updated from the 60's...shag red carpet, wood paneling and all.



Here is the AFTER pics...mantle is not finished, but we are coming along.




These are just a few pics of the living areas.  As time comes along I can post more pics of the home... I will try to get around to doing a Source post listing all of our paint colors, flooring detail and other items.

Thanks for looking!

Living with No regrets!
