With the house on the market, I thought it would be fun to look back at what the house looked like when we bought it, versus now that we're selling. I can't even believe it's the same place!

Obviously you have to take into consideration the fact that both times the house was staged for selling, and that the decor & furniture doesn't reflect the owner's taste or style, but I think it's safe to say that you can really see all of the improvements we put into the house. What you can't see are the updated systems, which we had to do back in 2006, 2007, and 2008.

And yes, that WAS popcorn treatment on the wall.

  1. Wow, what a huge difference. Love all the natural light in the space. And the new deck railing? Drooling.

  2. You guys did an amazing job with this house!

  3. Beautiful retrospective, and I so love your stained woodwork! Every time I see a house with that, it makes me even more frustrated that some moron painted ours. Le sigh. Also love, love, love the new deck! Do you know the paint color in your bathroom? Hunting for something similar for ours...

  4. Wow! It looks absolutely stunning!! Your hard work clearly has paid off.

  5. It looks so great!!!! I would love to live in this place. Let's transfer it to Portland!! :)

  6. Amazing. You've done a wonderful job!
