Almost exactly a year ago we took our first peek inside the pink house at it is so lovingly called. It was a wreck and smelled of all things nasty. Rodents bugs and the like we not a surprise. We tried to look past the cosmetic train wreck that unfolded as we turned each corner. After months of short sale drama, in the middle of June of 2011 we became the proud owners of "the pink house". We stood looking at the kitchen and wondered what we were doing. Others too kind to say so aloud wondered if we had made a mistake. But, here we are in the beginning of 2012 and we are making progress. Here is a before and after shot that makes it all worth it! You be the judge, could you see passed the dump to the diamond in the rough.
