After months of searching and sleepless nights we finally found a house to call our own! My fiancé, Casey, and I purchased our first home in the Penrose Community of Arlington, VA. We purchased a fixer upper in a great neighborhood that we are hoping to transform into a beautiful first home for our little family! We are planning to do some major renovations to get this old house up to our standards, needless to say we have a lot of work to do. We will share with you our journey of demolition, renovations and DIY projects. Hopefully we will have some amazing after pictures to share with you soon. For now here are the before and demo pics, enjoy!
|Back when we first put an offer on the house..feels like forever ago.|
|Casey tearing down the wall where we will open up the kitchen and add a breakfast bar.|
|Pulling the drywall off of the beam that needs to be replaced. We are thinking an exposed wood beam
would look cool.
|Lot’s of hard work went into tearing up the tile in our dining room.|

Looks like we have lots of work to do. We will keep you posted on the progress and the projects that we do to make this old house our own!
