#1719 the fixer upper before and after

Lots of photos here friends. The "before" photos are from May 2015 and the "after photos" are from July 2016 unless otherwise noted. When I looked at the May 2015 photos just now, I was blown away by the changes MT made in the house. It's one thing to see the work as it progresses, but to see what it was and what it became, well, I'll let you decide.

THE FRONT ROOM
The before and after photos aren't exactly the same view, but I think you can see the change.

THE KITCHEN
The before photo already has the new cabinets in. I don't have a photo of the cabinets that were replaced.

THE WALK-IN CLOSET IN MASTER BEDROOM

THE MASTER BATHROOM 
These photos need a little explanation. When we bought the house, the master bathroom was kind of inside the bedroom itself and had a skylight over it. Having the bathroom in the room made the bedroom very small. MT tore out the bathroom walls and took out the skylight to enlarge the bedroom. There was some space that had a wood-burning stove in it that he took out and used to make the new bathroom.

MASTER BEDROOM
The before photo is kind of dark; let me try to explain what you're seeing. You can see a jagged opening at the end. That used to be a solid block wall. MT cut that opening in order to give access to the walk-in closet and the master bathroom. The before photo above with the toilet in it - that is part of the master bedroom.

There are three other bedrooms, that got the full MT treatment, too, but I didn't have photos of them in my first batch of photos. Actually, MT started working on the house before I started taking photos of the place last May. There are a few other before and after photos that I'd like to show you, but that will be another post on another day.

We haven't had any offers on the house yet, but some people have come through and our realtor said there had been over 20,000 views of the listing online. Hopefully we will get an offer!
