Before and After

I went back and found some of the earliest pics I took of the house and compared them with how things look now. Wow. Pretty drastic changes! All all this is three years. I think we're done with big changes for now. Please dear god, please let us be done...



Here's a more static gallery of Before and After if flash ain't your thing

Just goes to show what great taste you and Rosanna have. Plus the amount of work you have put into the home.

WOW! Amazing. I need your design eye to come and give me a plan for my place. I especially dig the wavy roof and the large round window =)

And the landscaping walkways.

And the arches on the wall in the kitchen.

And....And...And....

KUDOS! As someone in the perpetual midst of remodeling I know how much time, money, effort and um, patience that took.

It's weird because we don't see the dramatic change as much until we look at the original pictures. Then it's pretty startling.

Also, as much as I'd like to take credit for ALL this amazing work, we had a lot of help in the form of several contractors who were cool enough to listen to us prattle on about various ideas and somehow made them work. Rossana and I directly worked on about 80% of the projects on the house. Some were just too difficult to help with like the retaining walls, others had us slogging right along side these guys in the interest of saving money and time. Rossana is also the chief force behind all the great gardening and plants. I just move heavy objects.

Wow. Seeing the photos really does make the changes more dramatic.

Regardless of who did what work, you both get props for the design.
