Below are our “before” photos of our newly-purchased house. Built in 1890, the house is 1,115 square feet and sits on 1.32 acres of land. We bought it via a short-sale on February 15, 2011, and it was very neglected when we purchased it. We hope to bring it back to its former glory and turn it into our dream home.
The photo from the listing. Considering we put in the offer in October and closed in February, we haven't gotten to see it this green yet.
Photo I took the day we bought it. Not much to look at yet, but can't you see the potential?
This is the "garage," though it is actually a bit of a historical artifact. It's called a carriage house and I look forward to restoring it.
An aerial view of the property, denoted by the green line. I see gardening and possibly goat farming in our future.
