BEFORE pictures...Sheridan House

Pin It

Here are before pictures of our newest project...hopefully "after" pictures will come shortly...so that we have somewhere to live!!

The backyard...I think I'm putting a huge drift of daffodils under that tree in the corner...




The ugly chain link fence that surrounds the whole yard...eventually a border of lavender will go here, but until then some hollyhocks and annuals will fill the space next summer...




The concrete patio which will get a concrete stain and maybe deck fencing (I found $43.00 packs of decking for 1 PENNY at Home Depot last week!). The built in grill needs some sprucing up too...




That pretty little section of grass is going to get some white and orage daffodils and white hyacinth for spring and some queeny purple hollyhock and purple pygmy for summer...




First view of the "oh so ugly" shed...the one that is "oh so practical"...




Front view of the house...we are going to umbrella that pine (I think?) somewhat, clump the hostas together near the front of the beds, then next summer add Bells of Ireland and cannas to the back of the bed where there is sun. Mahagony Midget will border the front. During the summer everything will be lime green and red including some containers with lime zinnias and glads and some other plants...




A view of the whole house from the north side. That house to the side and huge lot actually used to belong to our house...it was the 3 car garage!!! We had a veteran resident of the neighborhood come by and talk to us about the house. It ends up that he lived there years ago as a child!




Garage door...




Basement...




A very weird shower in the basement...




The guest bedroom...this room gets paint, a lighting fixture and maybe flooring...otherwise it will stay the same...




BebeRed's room...This room will stay orange to match his current benches and boxes, but eventually will change when bebeRex moves in :)




The scary part of the house...the kitchen...This half of the kitchen needs a ceiling and the whole room needs a new floor. We have already bought some gorgeous black porcelin tile, so I'm excited to see it put in!




This sad bathroom will not change much at first. It will be our first big project after the house is liveable and the kitchen/media room are complete.




The living room will get a new, but similiar coat of paint, a cleaned up floor and stay the same otherwise...




Same here...new, but similiar paint, keeping the light fixture and cleaned up floor...




The other half of the kitchen...tons of paint, appliances, light fixtures and we're going to try to build out a small countertop where that ugly curved shelf is...All of the supplies are bought, so now it is just a matterof getting in there and getting the work done...




Another livew of the living room into the dining room...this is a more accurate depiction of the color on the walls...




The staircase and front door. The staircase will get that missing spindle replaced, btu otherwise stay the same. The steps are SO pretty! That wall will go white...and the front door will get painted, but I'm not sure of which color yet.




That UGLY shed...paint and flowers should do wonders next spring...




Back of the House...




Front of the House...




Finally, the media room...needs a ceiling, a roof, a floor, lots of paint, the works! The second bathroom off of this room is very pretty and won't need much work...



So there it is! More pictures to come as the work is completed!
