This Is It: Exterior Befores.

We bought this Northeast Portland house eleven months ago as a major fixer. We took walls down to the studs, re-plumbed, re-wired, and gutted the kitchen and baths, filling countless containers and dumpsters with demolition debris. Then drywall went up. In March, we moved in, setting up our home in the basement.

The changes since then have been less dramatic, and we still have much to do, but progress continues.

And now we’re blogging.

The plan is to tell the story of our home renovation one post at a time, highlighting one feature or room or phase or story. It will be a historical document covering what we’ve done, probably, rather than a daily update of what’s happening right now. For the first post, here is a quick walk-around, showing the house exactly as it looked while it was still for sale.

Stay tuned. This is exciting.
