Yum Sweet Home: Before Pictures


1. We have a house. WE HAVE A HOUSE!

2. Our house has an old front door.


3. We have nice hardword floors/we’ve been getting all our painting done this week.

Painting in a house.

4. On a really distracting note, we only go there at darktime (after 5:30pm for us here in MN) which lends itself well to extremely low quality and grainy pictures.

5. We have arched doorways. *squeee*

Archway in a house.

6. White trim happening.

New paint in a house.

7. The beloved little kitchen. It will be remodeled eventually, but for a little while it will do us just fine.

8. PS. That would be a window. In the kitchen. EXCITING.

Kitchen renovation.

9. The tile. That is all.

Painting in a bathroom.

10. The long term future amazing HGTV-style master bedroom loft, currently disguised as the creepy but charming attic.

Empty attic.

11. The handyman who makes up for my non-handy skill set.

Man screwing into a window.

12. The place where the monsters live which will eventually be a finished basement for watching movies and stuff. Just give us a year or two.

Empty basement.

13. Fresh snow in the neighborhood = the coziest time of year to move in.

Road and sidewalk at night.

Thank you for forcing your eyes to look at such grainy, low lighting pictures just to meet our little Yum Sweet Home!

More pictures coming your way in a week or two! But first, we have to, like, clean and stuff.

    Congratulations to you both. Looks like a great project. And so spacious. I think Americans who come to live in the UK are so shocked at how small and crowded together our houses are generally!

    Great “bones” to that house. Reminds me of ours (in Minneapolis) in so many ways. We recently moved our bedroom to the upstairs loft and it is so cozy. Congrats!

    Congrats on your home! We live in MN too and I cannot stand it being dark by the time I get home from work these days! I’ve recently started following your blog, love it 🙂

    This is so exciting!!! How charming and cute and perfect. Cannot wait to see it…and can’t tell you what I would give to be at that Christmas party. Miss living so close to you guys – we took that for granted for sure. Love you guys!

    The house looks promising. I am so happy for both of you. Acquiring a first time house/ home for married couple is always an exciting moment. You get so excited . For myself, acquiring a home after six years of marriage made my marriage surreal. Congrats.

    I’ve been dying waiting to see pictures. Stalking instagram, wondering how long I could hold off before asking you to share pictures of your fabulous new home. It’s adorable and I can’t wait to see how it evolves with you. Congratulations!

    The house looks so cute, how exciting! It will be fun to watch the unfinished parts morph into something special over the years. Thanks for sharing Lindsay and Bjork. Oh, and happy Thanksgiving, welcome back home!

    Sooooooo exciting!!!!! I’m so happy for you guys. Welcome to the never-ending to-do list.
    I have a window over my kitchen sink and I lurve it. 🙂

    I LURVE IT. It’s so charming and has so much potential (that HGTV bedroom loft, ugh, perfect). I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

    PS If you need any help/hugs/Jimmy John’s and/or cookie deliveries, you know how to reach me. 😉

    Your new house looks adorable! I especially love your captions on the photos too, i.e. the basement where monsters live. I’m still scared of my parents basement to this day for that reason haha!
