So, I guess I'll have to start with pictures taken after we moved in BUT before any remodeling was done.

This was taken looking out the front door.  Yes, even this has all changed.

These pictures were taken after we had been in the house for about three months. (Actually, these were taken in January - so we had been in the house almost SIX months!  YIKES!!!)   I was finally here full-time and not driving back and forth to Lake Placid every weekend.  I had …
