before and afters

A bunch of you saw the renovation on Apartment Therapy today and although lovin the Rue pics of the renovation have been asking for paired pics of the before and after so here goes...
Ok the front is better but not finished, it needs landscaping, repair and the columns need finishing.
That's starting to happen now that the tenants are happily in and the weather is warmer.
The old kitchen is now an open plan kitchen on the left and the dining area on the right with a washer/ dryer tucked in the closet and new french doors.  The walls are gone, in fact all the downstairs interior walls are finito.
this view...
is now this
and the dining area
 new side entry area with closets on either side
 which replaces this- 
and this
and this hot mess
is now this
meanwhile upstairs
and the smaller bedroom 

is now an office
the master bedroom wasn't totally finished in time for the Rue shoot
but here's an idea of what it's like
 and before...
the unstyled pics are towards the end of construction but not done so excuse missing baseboard, knobs, etc.
