I thought it was beautiful before, but a little polish goes a long way! Also, I really love Spanish moss. And Jaime, the front may not look radically different, but there were a lot of problems with the house that weren't just superficial. Casa even mentioned the plumbing, which can be a serious headache.

Jaime, it takes a lot of thought, effort, and money to restore old homes. I find it refreshing that younger people are taking interest in restoration. Not all homes are supposed to be modern, outfitted by Pier One, that gets boring, don't you think?

It looks the same but cleaner and with fresh paint. I wouldn't call that a makeover.

oh wow, that is just fabulous! I love old houses, in fact, I live in one now but its not near in the shape I want it to be in. I can't wait to put the tongue and groove hardwood floors down and renovate my kitchen. Most other projects have been completed though.
