The Krampy Shanty ‘Before’ Photos

Okay, as promised (way back in June before our sabbatical)… house pictures!

Matt and I bought our very first house at the tail end of May. It’s nothing fancy (hence the name ‘The Krampy Shanty’), but it’s still a huge blessing to us, and we pray it will be to many others soon!

Kitchen and side door. The stairwell to the basement is to the right just before you exit the side door…

There ya have it, my before photos! The house already looks so different than these photos, and we’re just a month in as I’m writing this post.

I mentioned in my ‘We Bought a House‘ post about the great price God provided for us with this house. The bank did about $12,000 in repairs on their own accord (not to mention the few we asked for). Part of the repairs they did were the bathroom tile, tub, vanity, and brand new carpet throughout the house.

Matt and I have already started renovating the kitchen (it’s just about finished!), and I’m a girl, so of course I painted a few rooms here and there!

I can’t wait to show you some of the changes we’ve made to the place. Lots more house renovation blog posts to come!
