Some of you know our story, bought a home 10 years ago we didn’t like but loved the lot and location.  The lot is on a cul-de-sac so 14,000 sf plenty of room to make it our own.  Dropped 5 walls, gutted the kitchen, pulled up the floors, got rid of the popcorn ceiling and a bunch of other stuff and started putting it back together.

Recently we added 1,060 sf to the rear of the home and converted a bedroom into a closet, hallway and more room for the future master bath.  See the attached picture, that was the entrance to the bedroom which was closed up with drywall but gave us a weird wall, now what?  Accent wall of course, seems that is the thing now a day.  Michelle found the mirror, next make a design thank you David the handyman, find a clock, paint the wall a different color and now we have an accent wall.  Cool picture with the Christmas Tree in the mirror!

Good morning Dick. You and Michelle have a great deal of patience making your remodel a journey. My wife would want a destination not a journey. You guys are real pioneers. Enjoy your efforts as you finish them.

Thanks Kat Palmiotti I tell clients make a home your own.  I see so many homes that for not a lot of money you could really transform them into a beautiful home!
