Recent House Projects

I have always loved real estate!  So, it's fun being married into a family that does building and remodeling, except I always have a to do list for Jordan around our house.  We haven't done anything extensive to our house besides painting a few rooms, added beadboard, and stained our deck, but my mind is always brainstorming on different things I would like to do someday.  Recently, some of Jordan's family has bought run down homes and remodeled them, especially since the market has been so low.  It's so fun to see the before and after pictures.  Here is a house Jordan's sister, Charis and her husband Eric bought and renovated.  To me, this house has the most drastic change in the before and after pictures:
Below is a house we recently renovated.  Jordan did an awesome job!  I was able to pick out the paint colors and certain things, such as counter tops & bathroom vanities.  Typically I try to pick out classic colors that don't go out of style quickly.
 Here is the kitchen before we remodeled it:
 This is a different angle, but this is after:  (We removed the kitchen cabinets and installed used cabinets.  Jordan's dad had them and didn't need them so we cleaned them and touched up the white paint.  The reason we used black appliance is because Jordan's sister, Ashah was selling her refrigerator, which was black.  So we bought it from her and added a black stove as well.)
 This was the master bathroom before:
 This was after: (Jordan converted it from a half bathroom to a full bathroom.  Notice the rot & mold caused by the water heater.  The shower walls are ReBath of course :) and the flooring was left over from a ReBath job they did.)
 This is a before picture of one of the bedrooms:  (It was painted a nasty blue color)
 This is after:  (We refinished the hard wood floors and painted the wall kilim beige and installed new windows)
It is so fun to see the results.  We hope to do more in the future!
