MAKING IT THEIR OWN

We got a sneak-peek at Lex and Nate's new house last night. They closed on it a couple of months ago, but rented it back to the previous owners for awhile. They finally moved out a couple of weeks ago, and in that brief time the kids have managed to replace the entire roof and have all new siding installed and painted...

Looks sky blue here, but actually more of an aqua color.

added ceiling fans, repainted all the inside walls, and replaced the backsplash tile in the kitchen...



and most amazing of all, gutted both bathrooms!


In the master bath the old fashioned shower/tub combo was replaced with a new walk-in shower...


while in the other one they installed this extra deep soaking tub.

 
Only a few odds and ends left to take care of, which is good, 'cuz Friday is moving day! So proud of them for not settling for someone else's dreams and choices. A house should reflect the tastes and passions of the people living in it now. Put your mark on it, and make it your own!

Today we get to meet up with the other two kids, to see if we can't move this visa process along. The Epic Sudanese Adventure approacheth!

There is something magical about that "first" house! Love what they have done and glad they didn't change out the stove, that looks awesome.

The stove IS awesome. I'd love one like that!
