Before and After

My amazing husband has been hard at work since we moved into our new home.  He's done countless projects, big and small.  Here are some of my favorite before and after photos:

Office Before:

Originally we had a kitchenette in the corner of our family room.  Jason removed everything, including the disgustingly moldy drywall and built a desk.

Isn't that MUCH better?  I love this area and we use it every day for school, crafts and other projects.

Dining Room Beams
When we first moved in these beams in our dining area/kitchen were really sloppy, and insulation was falling down from the attic constantly. 

 Jason designed and built brackets for the end of the beams.

They are not quite done, but I think they look fantastic and are a huge improvement over what was there before.

In an unused corner of the family room, Jason built this gorgeous bookshelf.  I adore it, it makes me very happy every time I walk by.

My other favorite spots in the house are the fireplace and the photo shelf in our living room:

The long project to-do list has been overwhelming, but is slowly getting smaller.  How grateful I am for an amazingly talented husband who can fix or build anything.  And now that so many of these things are done, we'd love to have you stop by for a visit!


  1. Wow! You guys have been so busy and productive! WAY TO GO! Can't wait to see all the new stuff in person!
