Making even the smallest of changes to our humble abode feels really good. This month, we're welcoming Ruchette mommy and wife, Tori Swaim's, fully renovated nook next to the beaches of Florida. Her adorable home is one worth sharing, and she is letting us in on this finished journey:
"Several years ago, we embarked on making a few changes to our home. Three years later, we found ourselves with almost a brand new home! Our renovation included: painting the entire interior and exterior of our home, adding one new bathroom, gutting our other 3 bathrooms, adding walk-in closets to 2 of our bedrooms, turning our front porch into a foyer, turning an office into a master closet, gutting and expanding our kitchen and laundry room, and redesigning the exterior. And finishing just in time to host our oldest son's rehearsal dinner for his wedding in the beginning of June :)! Whew!
Our home is nestled in Atlantic Beach, Florida just a few steps from the beach, in the “Oceanwalk” subdivision. Oceanwalk is a beach side community with over 250 homes and is a quick bike ride away from the Beaches Town Center - a collection of fun shops and amazing restaurants.
My husband and I bought an empty lot in 1990 and constructed our new home. Our first child was 6 months old when we moved in. 19 years later, we knew it was time for a refresh (actually way past time!).
I hope you enjoy a tour of our newly renovated home."
