Burrows Progress

I know, I know… it’s been awhile. But we’ve been really, really, really busy! Instead of boring you with words or excuses, we’re just going to dive right in and show you some glorious progress photos.

The goal of this post was to take photos from the same vantage point as the original “before” pictures of the house and the photos from one year later (our house looked more or less the same in the one year later photos and right before we started this project, and that’s what we have to work with). But so many things have changed over the last four years that I found it difficult to figure out what I was looking at. I made the diagram below to show the vantage points of each set of pictures; hopefully it helps! And please excuse my amateur Adobe skills…


Alright, on to the photos!

View 1: From the entry, looking into the library. This room hasn’t changed much and at this point is serving as additional storage.



View 2: From the entry, looking toward the dining room and new additions.



View 3: Bedroom 1.



View 4: Bedroom 2.



View 5: Previously Bedroom 3, now master closet and laundry room (this is where things start to get weird!).



View 6: Previously kitchen, now looking into new kitchen.



View 7: Previously rear corner of the West Wing/ patio slab looking toward the garage, now from the great room looking toward the kitchen.



View 8: From the garage door (the location of the door hasn’t changed). Previously looking across the West Wing/patio slab, now through the kitchen toward the great room.



View 9: Previously, looking to the backyard from the edge of the West Wing/patio slab. Now, looking toward the backyard from the great room.



Like I said, we’ve been busy! Since the concrete pour, we’ve completed the framing, utilities (for the most part), and the roof. I wanted to get this post up now because things are about to start changing fast… we have insulation, sheet rock, tape/texture, and exterior stucco all scheduled within the next month! And then it will start to feel a lot more like a house and less like the bones of a house. But I do have to say, these are some damn good looking bones!

A few more photos to leave you with:


Master Bedroom

    Looks like you’re coming along very well. It’ll be beautiful and fun to live in when you finish.

    Wonderful. A lot of hard work but well worth it. I am sure you will enjoy it for many years to come. Love, Grandma W

    Wow, Thats a lot of progress!!! Thanks for taking time to share. I’m glad you documented it all, for when it’s done, one wouldn’t be able to imagine that the old house was in the new at all!
