Unfortunately I don’t have pictures of all of the rooms in their before state. The pictures here were taken from a web page the realtor put up when the house was on the market, before we purchased it. There is no bathroom photo, probably because it was because it was really bad – dysfunctional, ugly, and as we later learned – completely unsafe. Below are some room pics with descriptions of what will be transforming in that particular zone.
