Visiting Our Frends to the North

What can a teacher and software engineer do with one year and $200k? For starters, they can make a bland house look a helluva lot better.

One More...How Do You Like It?

Yes, yes, she's been staged. But what about the curb appeal? Interior colors? Kitchen fixtures? Any of it ring your bell?

The exterior 'after' is certainly better than the before. But how do you feel about the interior decor?

Could you live with a black house? A black room? How about these? Which ones, if any, could you take as is?

A Farmhouse in New York

While the exterior 'after' isn't all that shocking, it's still a nice job. How do you feel about country interiors?

Pleasing All of the People All of the Time: Australian Mullets
June 18, 2015 9:00 AM - InsertSnappyNameHere
You'd never guess what's hiding behind this facade! "Heritage laws" wouldn't allow the owners of this house to change the front facade, but apparently the inside and the rear are fair game. It's a stunner! Crime, or creativity at its best?

Before & After Part 3: Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch...
June 17, 2015 7:43 AM - InsertSnappyNameHere
So this Texas ranch remained the same on the outside, but its innards were completely reworked. Yes, it's staged within an inch of its life. Leaving that aside, what do you think of the finishes?

Before & After Part 2: How do you feel about Orange?!
June 16, 2015 8:21 AM - InsertSnappyNameHere
Not everyone could agree on yesterday's blue makeover. I suspect however that the orange in today's 'after' will have more of you agreeing than not. Click for the exterior and interior reno pics:

A 'Before & After' That Will Blow Your Mind!
June 15, 2015 9:15 AM - InsertSnappyNameHere
The 'before' is hideous. Wait until you see the 'after' and the interior reno. Nothing short of amazing.
