Last weekend we bumped into the lovely gentleman who sold us our house. We knew that he had bought and ‘flipped’ it after a couple had lived here for 50 years. After we asked a few questions about the history of the house, he offered up a few ‘before’ pictures from when he acquired the house.

We always knew that he did a great job with the updates, but the pictures really speak for themselves.

We really appreciate the fact that he refreshed an old house and didn’t just make some easy ‘surface’ fixes. Instead he paid attention to the details and did a great job maintaining the character of the house! The only problem we’ve found is that he didn’t fit larger closets into our 1925 bungalow…

Carpet in a bathroom is really such a classic and timeless look ;) I'm sure you are REALLY sad about not having that anymore!

The bathroom (minus carpet) looks pretty much exactly like what we want to do to ours... maybe someday!

I think the carpet was installed before Louis Pasteur discovered germs...

I'm jealous of the built-ins. Our house was built the same year, so I has similar features. But not any built-ins...ah well...
