The Reveal

July 12th, 2016 –

The day our home transitioned to a house, our future buyer’s house. It’s hard to believe how far we’ve come since the fall of 2013. From the first days of ripping out carpet and wallpaper to retiling showers and installing hardwoods, Ines and I have learned a incredible amount from this Clovis house. While it’s sad to let “her” go after 3 long years of blood, sweat, and tears (#rhyme), we are proud to reveal the finished product, and looking forward to our next adventure. We’ve had our fill of fixers for a while, but I’m certain that renovation is in our future in some form or fashion, maybe even as a career!

I know, I know…less yapping, more before and after’s; with further ado, we bring you the new and improved 1734 Baronne Ct.

It may be a while before we tackle our next renovation, but we couldn’t be more proud of the transformation that took place in this house. Unfortunately, we only got to spend a few choice months in the finished product, but we know that we’re leaving this home in better condition than when we found it. That’s something you can “take to the bank” any day.

We left 1734 Baronne Ct in August 2016, after 3 years of calling this cul-de-sac our home, and our hope is that the future owners can take pride in the life that was worked back into their property.

Of course, we couldn’t leave without leaving one last mark on the property (this is what happens when you have remorse about leaving building materials behind). Maybe, just maybe the owners will do the right thing and bury it before trashing it, haha:

And thus ends one chapter, but begins another. There will always be a little piece of us cemented into the little town of Clovis (see what I did there?), and while we are excited for our new adventure to Florida, we can’t help but reminisce on all the happy memories shared in this neck of the desert. Thank you 1734 Baronne Ct for showing us the truth behind DIY, instilling a deep admiration for the trades, and giving our little family an experience we’ll never forget.

And with that, the Manship’s are out!
