NaBloPoMo Day 10 - Our House

I haven't written about our house in a while so I thought I would do so tonight.
The house was built in 1980 by a gentleman who was the landscaper at the local community college.
We found out students from the college actually built the house...
this explains a lot!

The house was then bought 17 years ago by the people we later bought it from.
They really didn't do too much to the house or the landscaping,
so we've (read my husband) been doing a lot of work on the house
and clearing the land of 17 years of overgrowth.

From the time we got the house, I knew that it needed a more contemporary look.
Our architect gave us a design and we started working on it last summer.
We like to call it the "Five Year Plan."
This is a little wrap up of Year One.

Step one... build a dormer to make more room for the master bedroom and bath.
Our carpenter got to work and BAM!
suddenly there was a hole on the side of the house...

A little framing and soon there's a new bathroom!

Here a frame...

A little covering...

A little siding, some new windows, and the start of a whole new look...

Cheers to the changes that will come in Year Two...!

It is cool, Veronica, how you have the 5 year plan on what you want the house to look like! How fast time is going, it will be the end of five years before you know it! All is looking good with it!
