Front Yard: Before

Old stepping stones fade into an untended front lawn. Shrubs and ornmental trees have seen better days, as has the home's exterior.

Front Yard: After

Cedar shake shingles, siding stained a muted sage green, cedar shutters and colorful landscaping give new life to the front yard.

Front Porch: Before

Old siding, crumbling cement steps and overgrown shrubs tell a sad story at Blog Cabin 2010.

Front Porch: After

Trex decking, Arts-and-Crafts-style columns faced in cultured stone and an inviting staircase add charm to the front entry.

Dining Area: Before

Cramped and cluttered, the dining space is not conducive to entertaining.

Dining Area: After

A large dining table, comfortable seating and an open floor plan accommodate gatherings large and small.

Living Room: Before

Low ceilings and a lack of sunlight add to the gloomy mood in the great room.

Living Room: After

Gabled 14-foot ceilings and 16 feet of windows let the light in; a stone fireplace lends lodge style.

Outdated cabinetry and countertops are just a few of the original kitchen's drawbacks.

Kitchen: After

A gourmet's dream come true, the kitchen boasts a mosaic tile backsplash, stainless-steel appliances and a natural quartz countertop.

Master Bedroom: After

An antiqued iron bed takes center stage in this dreamy retreat, which offers breathtaking views of the backyard.

A soaking tub and steam shower combo turn this space into a spa-style getaway.

Guest Bedroom: Before

Company certainly wouldn't appreciate this room, decorated with old quilts and cast-off furnishings.

Guest Bedroom: After

Guest Bathroom: Before

A blur of black and orange, the original guest bathroom is a sorry sight.

The remodeled bathroom is light, bright and inviting.
