Home Tour: Exterior Front Yard (it begins!)

December 3, 2014

Well folks, it’s here– I can finally spill the beans on our new/old home and start leading you through the not-so-pretty before so we can get working on the very-pretty after.

So here’s the plan: I’m going to break it down based on space/room with a before home tour.  Then in a follow-up post, I’ll share the plan for remodeling the space.  A few of the smaller spaces will be print posts, but the great majority will be in video form.  James, my video master/wonder/wizard, and I put our heads together to up our game in the production and content department.  He really outdid himself with the editing and I hope you’ll love the virtual tour as much as we do.

I’ll also be sharing our progress (demo has already begun!) and tutorials for all of the many, many, many DIY’s involved with this home, along the way, also heavily in video format.  Seeing step by step photos is very helpful, but I truly believe there isn’t anything quite like watching a video tutorial to teach you how to do something.

This first video also gives you some history on the house (which I’ll go more into tomorrow).

Without further adieu, I give you the first in a series of home tour videos: the Exterior Front Yard.

Video/Editing: James Young

Here we go!  Tomorrow I’ll be sharing more details about the house.  We’ve never taken on a project quite this big before, and it’s going to be a wild ride for sure.  I’m so grateful you’re following this journey with us.

*One final note: if you happen to know where the house is, please don’t share it so we can continue to feel confident sharing details on here.  Thank you!

    Did you say this house was built in the 70’s?

  8. […] The #staggreno was built in 1970 but somewhere along the line, there were some changes to the home’s structure.  The owners added a pitched roof (that’s right, it was flat originally).  The neighborhood is on the bench (higher part of the Salt Lake Valley) and gets a whole lot of snow in the winter, so I’m grateful for the pitched roof (even though I do love a flat roof on a mid-century modern home), but one thing we didn’t love was the way they laid out the front porch and entrance.
