Pretty Impatient
These dramatic changes that Erin made to her home are somehow completely subtle.  She took out a dormer, added a portico over the front door, and re-pitched half the roof! That’s dramatic!  There was a crane involved!  But doesn’t the after seem like it was always meant to look exactly like that?  Like the before was just a weird dream?  So absolutely charming, I kind of wish she was selling it.  To me!

The changes didn’t stop there.  Check out the back view, and take a moment to sigh in wonder at her lush landscaping.  They don’t call her The Impatient Gardener for nothing!

    Thanks so much for all the nice comments and thank you SO MUCH Lindsey for featuring it. We’re absolutely thrilled with how it turned out. A lot of people (including the bank) thought we were nuts that we were going to spend a lot of money and not gain a single square foot of space, but what we did was make the most of the square footage. By raising the roof, we were able to add a full bathroom, a walk-in closet and gain valuable useable space in the bedrooms (which were hampered by low Cape Cod-roof syndrome.

    I really do feel like this is what the house was supposed to look like all along.
