our new {old} house!

you guys, i’m so excited to share the ‘before’ photos of our house with you today!

it’s crazy to think that these were taken less than a week ago and everything already looks so different! ken has made so much progress it’s unbelievable. i promise to share more photos and updates¬†along the way. things are moving quickly because we have to move IN TWO WEEKS {or more accurately 12 days}! also if you follow me on snapchat {i’m lizqbraga} you’ll realize i’ve basically been a single mom for the past few days because annabelle and construction don’t exactly go together but that’s ok! we’re actually having fun.

ok, on to the photos!


so, do you think we’re crazy? are you excited to follow along?¬†if you have any ideas or renovation tips please share them in the comments below. despite having watched thousands of hours of hgtv we have no idea what we’re doing!

    Liz, my very best friend is a designer in GR who does edesign. She has a lot of experience, vision and style and I think she could help you, if needed. I’m sending your blog link to her because the before pictures will be like coffee for her this morning! What a fun project–so excited to see how it goes for you and Ken. Good luck!
