If the below was one of our buying options I would have driven right on by. Yes there’s shutters and brick, but it reminds me of sprawling track houses.
The after is simply gorgeous and makes me drool all over.
This house is okay, I can kinda see the potential but in the end it lacks the architectural elements that give it character.
It’s now totally cute with all the character it needs.
The garage isn’t a bad before, but when compared with the after you can see that there was room for improvement.
wow, these are amazing!! our second home HAS to be an older house with character..i gave in on our house and while i love it, it's newer and doesn't have the charm i would like!

What a great post! Wow that third house make over is so different it dose not look like the same house. What a difference! Do you live in Washington or Oregon? Your house reminds me of that area. A lot of craftsmen out there. I love craftsmen homes. But your pix looks a wee bit too sunny to be the PNW!
Wow these transformations are incredible! It seems to take a lot of skill to create something like this. In my place people keep demolishing and rebuilding. I wish they would pick up the habit of seeing the potential of an old house. Thanks for sharing these! Very inspiring. 🙂
Wow! I would absolutely love to do that, but it would be even more awesome to have family & friends who could support and help you. Mine are pretty awesome–but I don't know if they're THAT talented. 😉
