Ten Year Refresh

Chad and I recently celebrated the ten year anniversary of purchasing the 1952 House. After ten years, it was time for a refresh and some repairs. We had the air conditioning ducts replaced, installed a solar-powered attic fan, installed an attic access ladder in the long hallway, got the original bathtub reglazed and installed a fan in the bathroom. While these were very necessary repairs/renovations, they aren't anything to photograph and submit to House Beautiful magazine.

The showstopper projects to behold are the new windows and the new exterior paint color. If you happened to drive by the 1952 House during the past month, you surely noticed an ever expanding collage of test paint patches on the front of the house, seven different colors in total. After much negotiation, Chad and I chose Sea Sparkle by Valspar. As always, click on any photo to view it larger.
