Today marks four years ago to the day that we closed on our 1962 retro ranch. In some ways, it feels like it couldn’t have possibly been four years already, but in other ways it seems like we have been living here happily for longer than that.
The last four years here have been filled with a whole lot of yard work, painting walls, a gut remodel of our master bathroom, painting the kitchen cabinets, and generally making our house feel more like a home. It also marks four years of this blog, which I started as a creative outlet, a visual journal of our quest to make our house a home, a way for far away friends and family to “visit” our lives without having to travel and what ultimately led Pam to me, which in turn helped me get my current job as Managing Editor for RetroRenovation.com.
Now let’s all take a walk down memory lane with some before and after photos that show the progress made over four years.
The master bathroom remodel:
We’ve come a long way in four years, but there is still more to be done — especially out in the yard. I’m starting to get the feeling like its nearly under control after four years of hard, backbreaking work and a whole lot of tree trimming and weeding. Of course a house is never truly finished, and the journey is part of the fun. Thanks for tagging along on this journey with us.
