Watch as we Transform this Dover NH Condo- Our Not So Extreme Makeover!

By
Home Stager with Sharon Tara Transformations

You are invited to watch as we transform a Dover, NH condo from foreclosure to refinish. We are in the process of helping our daughter, proud new homeowner, make the necessary improvements to her new home. 

She recently closed on a neglected, cold condo with dreams of turning it into a warm, inviting home.  I plan to post updates and photos as we progress.  I'll start here with the before photos.

 The building is 1800's, but the kitchen appliances are only 2 years old and in very good condition.  The ceiling needs a minor repair and the floor needs to be replaced.  Really dirty!

 The bath needs new floor, mirror and light fixtures. Again with the dirty... nasty dirty!

In the Dining Room, we plan to remove the giant bookcase and break an opening in the wall into the kitchen.

The Living Room is missing radiator covers, needs new light fixtures.  More with the dirty! 

 

Note floor by front door!

master bedroom 

 

Master needs paint, light fixture, and did I mention it needs cleaning?  Isn't this the cutest closet door. It is like the dwarfs live here. 

 

 

 

It has modern features but maintains it's historic charm.  The "older home" details are wonderful.  We have started the cleaning process and some construction and I will be posting regularly with updates and photos.  We are very excited about this project and hope you enjoy following along!

Sandy  It is such a cute place, just needs a little love!

 As for the Voki:   I couldn't figure it out at first either.  I searched Active Rain and found directions, but I don't remember who it was.  If I could do it, you can.  Hope this helps, I will try to walk you thru it: after you have it created and go to "embed" it, it asks you to  1. pick a destination...I did "standard web page" and then 2. pick the size...I did "small 200x267"   then you press  "get code" and it takes you to a box with a bunch of code in it.  You copy and paste the code and then go to your active rain home page and go to My Settings and paste the code into the box for Blog Description.

Bill   As you will see from todays update, we broke a hole in the wall into the dining room and we plan to tile under the cabinets.  She really was lucky to have fairly new appliances and counter.  Thanks for the comment.
