After almost a year of updating to make this home feel like ours I have finally pulled everything together into the requisite “Home Tour”.  You can see all the befores and the list of our plans in this post Our New Home: The Befores and our previous coastal lakefront home near the Virginia coast HERE.

Easy updates to a builder grade small powder room. Add temporary wallpaper, spray paint a mirror and build in a shelf. Huge impact for small $..

Here is the master bedroom, the sunroom off it is the perfect quiet spot for my home office.
