This video says it all. If you’ve been watching, you’ve seen the progress on this History Drive renovation. Here it is…
It started with a house desperately in need of some help. the flooring and carpets were shot. Walls were either dingy and marked up, or had 1970′s era wallpaper on them. The kitchen…you don’t even want to know about the kitchen. Even the outside of the house needed something – it had been painted in 1978 a kind of “barn red” that was no so flattering, to say the least.
Well, we’ve come a long way, baby. Check out our walk through from earlier this week…
Not to be outdone, what was a “cellar” is turning into a beautiful family space with extra bedroom:
One thing is certain – this is going to be a beautiful NEW home when all is said and done. We should be wrapping up in the next couple weeks!
As we move through the renovation project on History Drive in Oakton, things are really starting to come together. When I pulled up on Tuesday afternoon I was struck by how great the front of the house looked – even with the dumpster in the driveway!
Last week, the crew pulled all the scrub brush out of the front yard along with the entire layer of grass – if you could call it that. The lawn was mostly crab grass, clover and all manner of weeds.
After removing the existing grass/weeds and dead schrubs, we grated the lawn so that it had a nice smooth curve to its slope. Then we added a LOT of new top soil, something in the neighborhood of 12 yards. Then we seeded the lawn. You can see the great results after only 1 week!
We got a look at the back yard too – this is going to be a great place for a family to make memories!
Next we move on to the Master Bedroom. Last week, we showed you the beginning tile work. Well, now it is finished and the detail is just great. We also ran the wiring for Internet access and whole house sound into the Master Bedroom. Have a look here:
