House Remodel

Here are some amateur before and after photos of our house remodel. We bought the home from the original owner; the Mrs. lived here for 42 years. We were very impressed with the superb condition it was in. There are many things we loved about it when we first walked in–the floor plan, the large, bright windows, and we like the use of space. It is 2900 square feet. 3 bedrooms, 2 bath on the main floor and two-thirds of the basement is an apartment. Our family fits nicely in the space we have now, with potential to take back the apartment space if we ever want it. We also love the fact that it has central air (a first for us), attached garage, and “master suite.” The updates were mostly cosmetic, with some minor upgrades to the electrical. We are really happy with how everything turned out, not really wishing we had done anything different at this point.

Some details: We did not do this on our own. Our very talented contractor and friend Pat Larsen from American Fork headed up the project and did the work for us. One of our favorite features is the concrete countertops, Whitestone Concrete in SLC is the way to go if you’re wanting to do concrete. And thanks to Uncle Val for the beautiful work on our hardwood floors.
