3 Years

We've had our house for three years today.  It's been a shock to my eyes to see these pictures in comparison from then and now.  As you can see, my photography skills haven't improved much in three years.  I tried to get some of the same angles as then, but trying to remember where I needed to stand is hard.  Plus there's so much stuff in the way now.  I'm a borderline hoarder I think.  And it was raining when I took these.  Picture me running around outside with an umbrella in the rain taking these.  I am that crazy person that the neighbors laugh at behind their curtains.

We've painted every room and all of the floors are different.  This house is still a work in progress though.  Some things (mostly the bathroom) are in progress and not very cute and decorated.

Oh, and I didn't "style" the house before I took these today.  I picked up a few pairs of underwear, but that's about it.  You can feel good about your superior housekeeping skills now.  You're welcome.

I really loved this countertop.  It had a "marine-edge" which was so helpful for keeping eggs and water from running off into the floor.  That is the countertop edge as far as I'm concerned.


This was the floor in the kitchen when we bought the house.

"Carport" is a relative term.  We've barely parked any cars in it.  It's a workshop really.
