Our New House-Main Living Area's Before photos

Here are photos of the main living areas to the new house. As you can tell, the house is in great shape and the previous owners (our friends, Papa & Mama Johnston) took great care of it and did quite a few upgrades. It was a basic tract home and they had added granite countertops, tile floors, backsplashes, new sinks, and many other things. Now there is nothing wrong with the house and it is move-in ready. We just wanted to make it more "us". So we are undergoing a "small" remodel. It started with ripping up the carpets to install hardwood. Somehow it is morphing to a whole new level. I think my husband and his dad are glad to have a house to work on again. As custom home builders by trade, who are not practicing their trade currently, they miss the thrill of a hammer and the smell of sawdust. I'm just happy to have my own house again. It will be 3 years since we've owned a home, and I can't wait to move in. We are in our current lease for a few more months, so this gives us time to do the remodel, plus our landlord is willing to let us out of our lease early provided he finds a new tenant. The house is only a few blocks away from where we currently live, so it's nice and close to keep and eye on everything. I will post more photos soon.
