A 'Before' House Tour

Now that we have settled in to our new home and done the truly important things (like get Internet access), I wanted to post a "before" house tour as promised. These are the images of our home taken from the listing and the inspection, so they still have the previous owner's flair.

House Stats:

  • Built in 1920's but majorly renovated in 2007
  • 2-Story, with painted brick on the original home and siding on the second floor addition.
  • 4 Bed, 2.5 Bath, ~2300 square feet
  • Unfinished, walkout basement
  • Backyard with a deck, and with a detached 2-car garage
  • Established neighborhood lined with large, old trees
  • One block from a great elementary school & playground, 5 minutes to daycare and about 12 minutes to work :-)

Looks awesome!!! Is it bad that I secretly love the master bedroom and purple bedroom??? I am pretty sure I would live there alone though because Chad would die LOL.


About Me

My photo
I'm a St. Louis native, but I have been living in Chicago since 2005 and am loving every windy minute of it. I enjoy cooking (more-so eating), home decorating and really anything creative. I'm a supporter of DIY & handmade goods, a fledgling foodie and a connoisseur of kitsch. I spend my days filling online shopping carts, emptying them and repeating the process all over again. Most of all I love spending time with my husband, Dave, our first child, Claire and my dog, Louie.
