a look back- year twothousandseven

I can't believe 2007 is over and we are almost a month into 2008 already! It's crazy! Last year was a very busy year for me and my boo, Zach. In 13 months we have personally bought 3 properties...renovating all 3. That's a lot to do...we do this in addition to working 50+ hrs a week (and Z is in school full time.) We love it though. There is something about seeing the instant change when you do a home improvement project. On a Saturday morning I would enter a room with disgusting foreclosure condition dog pooped on carpet and by the end of the long 14 hour work day I would see the masterpiece of new hardwood floors. I love instant gratification so going into a room with boring white walls and painting color just makes me excited. I know, I'm weird! I'm going to post some pictures of one of our projects from the Summer 2007. Probably the best part was selling it in 5 days from when I listed it!

New Windows installed by Z and 'friends'

Living Room

Dining Area

All new kitchen, I laid tile for what felt like days!

Bedroom-this room was DISGUSTING when we purchased it!
There was dog poop all over the carpet in the bedroom & closet, we had to wear masks it was so bad!
