We purchased our first home In December of 2009 and immediately began working on improvements.  The foundation of the house was in great shape (home built in 2003), but some of the walls, doors, mouldings, window blinds, etc. were damaged due to previous renters.  They had dogs who chewed moulding and broke window blinds throughout the house and doors had holes in them we think from being punched through.  Nice huh?  We learned later the house was previously a drug house.  It was the ugly, sticks out like a sore thumb, home on the street and neighbors were itching for new renters/owners.  The house sold for an amazingly low price (bank foreclosure) and we knew the minor damage could easily be replaced and upgraded.

We are planning on replacing the flooring on the entire first floor with hardwoods and updating the kitchen with new appliances, new backsplash, and possibly updating the countertops before we sell in the near future.  We'd also like to replace the floor, window, and door moulding throughout the house, repaint the interior and exterior of the house, replace the blinds, and install window casings in every window.  Phew!  For now, here are the before and current afters (before the final changes).

A few spaces I left out include our master bathroom/closet, laundry room, and garage.  None of these rooms are really exciting yet and aren't complete.  But the minute they get exciting I'll make sure to keep you posted.
