I love the contrast of a black door with white trim. Also, black makes the colors of my wreathes pop!

A beautiful sunroom with french doors leading in and french doors leading out.
The natural daylight would be amazing and I can already see myself using the room every day. Ahhhh...the dream. :)

I would add on a room that I could rent out to pay the mortgage.

In Utah, ranches are often called ramblers and the featured house would be called a multi-level by many. No one here argues about it. I think a single-car drive-under garage is better used as living space.....My humble opinion.

Marie-Josee. Sitting behind a keyboard for too many hours seems to give one a sense of entitlement to be mean. Before Facebook, I had no idea how many petty mean spirited people have become design critic's. I would just love to have them post their dark, old-fashioned pink swag drapes and dusty rose carpet. I love to see fun funky ideas that people go with.

Love love love!!! I can't believe anyone would think the old house was better! While the new house still needs personal touches that come when homeowners move in or the house is staged its a remarkable transformation! Living in Los Angeles the carport would not bother me but I do understand that it can hurt the value to he w/o a dedicated garage and of course when it snows the homeowners may kick themselves for eliminating altogether. Overall though very well done work! Btw, what is a modest budget in New Hampshire? I know this varies by region...

I agree with a white or cream backsplash....either glass tile or subway. I would like to see bolder drawer and door pulls.

I have knotty maple in medium stain and glazed finish. I so want to go white, but want a professional job. How to find an excellent painter?

Fabulous makeover. Can't wait to see the new backsplash and floors. I had the same cabinets, but opted to buy new ones from IKEA instead of painting. Wish I'd hired a painter instead of the contractor IKEA suggested.

What did they do with the old set of double wood doors? Those were nice! :0)

I do like the changes in the dormers & the upper windows with functional shutters. The overall upgrade was done very nicely.
(the "before" lower bay windows were funky)

For me, I think I'd go with a different color. (just my preference) The blue seems to be a little pale for such a "beefy" structure.

Did that make sense?? hehe

I totally love that you removed the dropped soffits and ran the uppers to the ceiling. (I did the same) and great minds do think alike. What I like the most.....you did what you like, and isn't that why we live through these renovations?

It's very nice. My only criticism is the door handles are too dark. They're a little distracting. Beautiful kitchen though!

Maybe it's the lighting but the cabinets look yellow, if that's case, I would have chosen a shade of white instead. Like the style of the cabinets & everything else but I don't like the paint color nor the flooring.

I love my new leather sectional. My 20 pound dog does not scratch the leather. Also, we have already spilled coffee and wine on it. I love that we can just wipe everything up. However, you should make sure it's decent leather. Cheaper leather is thinner and scratches easily. I saved $900 by buying the floor model.

Americans are so very afraid to discard things that are "treasures." I am not talking about old pictures, jewelry, and valuables. We seem to equate our personal value with all the stuff we accumulate. I think it comes from feeling deprived when we were younger. What good are things that we
don't use or even remember we have?

I read somewhere that when you own things in excess of your need, you are merely paying to store it for the next owner to use. I learned my lesson moving a new fridge across the country to find that state's rentals are all fully equipped with appliances. I then had to rent storage until I sold it for a fraction of what I had paid. I paid for that fridge more than three times if I add the cost of moving and storing it, just for someone else to enjoy using it. Lesson learned the hard way.

In my house, we have two sets of towels each for us two, and two sets of bedding. There's a couple sets of towels for guests, and one set of sheets for the guest bed. We're excruciatingly tidy and organized. As for special exceptions, we're book-lovers, and craft hobbyists, and I'm a musician and china collector. We also both like to dress well; he loves shoes, and I love hats. We don't tend to keep things we don't make use of and can't find space for; I've got upwards of 15 teacups, and I rotate through all of them to drink my tea every day. I also love to have (themed) dinner parties, so my Chinese dish set gets used, as does my sushi set, fancy soup tureens, platters, and other specialty serving ware. It's all about how you wish to spend your time as to what deserves space in your house; my piano and china cabinets have greater importance than a large couch or entertainment system, because they are daily use items.

I am the homeowner and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading all of your comments. It is refreshing to get some truly objective opinions and I must say that I have found merit in all of your feedback - both positive and otherwise. Thank you - and if I have time I will post some pictures of the interior, though it is very much a work in progress!!
