Yes, I’ve done it. I’m engaged and we are now embarking upon a home remodel in order to make what was my home now into our home. We took out a home loan to turn this dated mid-mod tri-level into a beautiful bungalow of love. Which means the Brady Bunch kitchen and old double pane windows will be discarded with gratitude. We will also be re-finishing the hardwood floors, turning the attached one car garage into a bedroom, and creating a laundry / mud room all to make these 1400 sq. ft. sparkle and shine the way it deserves. The decision to do this hasn’t been so easy. At first we thought buying a new house was the answer and after looking for several months and almost moving to Castle Rock, CO we decided it would be cheaper and a bit easier to remodel what we already have and what we have is a great location and a lot of room to grow. Please stay tuned as we update this post with a lot of before photos and hopefully by the end of Fall we will have a ton of after photos. The photos below are some of the before shots and I can’t wait to show you our progress!

6/18/19 - We’ve been slowly moving forward but today we dug our first hole. We had to prove to the city that the garage is on a 3 ft foundation so that we may turn it into a bedroom. We also got the plans for our kitchen remodel.

we decided to completely vacate and within 24 hours we found an apartment and a moving company.

This is what happened to our house just minutes after we completed our move out.

Another update! We’ve made a bit of progress! Do you think we will be ready to move in in a month?
The skylights went in last week and we will be ready for inspections early next week.
