Before & After Renovations

A (Bittersweet) House Tour

You’ve seen most of my house at one point or another over the years, but as I do not own a wide-angle lens, it’s been tough for me to get shots that really show you what the spaces look like as a whole, and how they fit together.

The photographer who came over to shoot the house for the listing did have a wide-angle lens, though, and so I now present to you: A bittersweet little house tour. The only room missing is the master bath, which I’ll be photographing myself tomorrow after I put a few finishing touches on it. (As a recap, here’s what the house looked like on move-in day three years ago.)

I didn’t include product info because there’s just so much, but you can click through to the links below for details on each room, or just ask away in the comments.

Sigh.

    Whoever ends up with that house is lucky as hell. (I don’t think we ever saw your hot tub! Any chance you can take it with you to your new place? Same goes for all your amazing bathroom fixtures, etc. I’d be grabbing all that stuff.)

      I’m going to see if the new owners want it…and if they don’t (which, believe it or not, some people don’t)? YES. it was suuuuuch a pain to put in – I had to build a platform, run high-voltage wires, hire special movers to get it in (and take down a fence in the process!)…ugh.

    What a gorgeous home! I’ve been following along with you and have seen all the renovations, but the wide-angle shots really make a difference. Whoever buys is so lucky!

    You have a great talent for beautifying your surroundings spaces! Lovely home and you will make of your homes just as lovely.
