Selling Our Dream Home After 20 Years!

In 2005, we realized that my husband was no longer going to be able to help take care of our house and 35 acres.  I also faced the fact that I was unable to take care of the property myself because most of my time had to be devoted to my husband. 

I took a look at the house and property and realized there was a lot of work to be done before anyone would pay the price we wanted. 

 I began with the house. A new porch floor and underpinning were the first projects followed quickly by fresh paint for the exterior and stain for the porch floor and deck. We followed that with a new metal roof and landscaping.

This is the picture used by the realtor in his ad.

I enjoy watching "Sell This House" on TV so I knew that the interior of the house had to be cleaned out.  We had collected "stuff" for 20 years and it was everywhere.  So, as soon as possible, I began cleaning out rooms and closets.  We also decided to remodel our master bath.  A new tile shower along with a new tile floor was installed.

I also installed new flooring in the library, living area, and master bedroom.  Below are a few pictures of the house that were used by the realtor.
