Some pictures to take you through our first home. 

This is what it looked like when Branko first purchased this property. The home has 2.4 acres of land, a creek with a waterfall and a small home that had not been updated inside.   He always believed he would live here forever but when the time came for a home addition he really knew he wanted more land. So house hunting we went. 

The picture below is a picture of the house and the garage that was on the property and the condition when we purchased it. The landscaping had not been taken care of in a very long time.

    1. Thanks Trissy!! I actually just added these recently so you probably didn't miss them :)

  2. Adding to your house will increase the appraisal value of your house because you are adding square footage to your home.

  3. What tile did you use in the bathroom?

    1. Both tiles are from Home Depot - sorry don't remember the exact name but the darker one is still carried by most stores
