When we decided to buy our new home we chose it because it has potential. Good location, great schools, great lot, and no HOA. It wasn’t a gem. The first time we saw the house I forgot about it almost immediately. With a second look I could start to see where we could take it.

We have 4 separate renovations planned.
1. Add a guestroom to the basement. (This spring, summer, fall.)
2. Solve the front door problem… as you can see we currently have 2 front doors. Paint the fugly yellow siding. (Next spring?)

3. Tear down the garage and build a new one, add a master suite above. (Honestly, drawing a visual of this is beyond my Photoshop capabilities. Maybe 5 years from now?)
4. Expand the kitchen and dining room, creating a large great room with views of the backyard. (This is about 10 years away so I have no concrete vision, but plenty of flights of fancy.)
