Our Tri-Level Split: The Final Reveal

Dear Renovation Diary,
This is the final tour of our Tri-Level. We wrapped the remodel earlier this week, leaving us to wonder what we'll do with our free time now! (Please note that the links are not affiliate, but past posts I've written about this process.)
We purchased the home in 2012.
(Exterior updates: new roof, gutters, down spots, windows, screen door, garage opener and paint.)

The side patio

The interior received a new paint job of gray walls and white trim (with the exception of the lowest level). 

The kitchen updates were purely cosmetic, as the flow of the room was functional. The new flooring really offset the wood tones, which I think gives off a slight farmhouse feel.

The staircase to the upper level is a focal point, and the cathedral ceiling makes the room feel larger than it is. I love the open concept of this space, and it was a major selling point for us. The kids typically played up in the loft or colored at the table while I worked in the kitchen, so the layout was ideal for our family.

The dinette had a sliding door that opened to the side patio. We ate many a dinner al fresco when the temperatures allowed. Also, here's an argument for utilizing silk flowers for your wedding - our table centerpiece is my bridal bouquet! The dining set is a family heirloom, and we try to sit down as a family for dinner as much as we can.

This shot was taken from the entry. Another half staircase leads to the lowest level in the home. As you can see, we included the flooring between the stairs to maintain a cohesive look.

The lofted living room didn't have a ceiling fixture when we moved in. We added one a couple of summers ago, and the ceiling fan really helps circulate the air in the house.

We painted the support beam, which seems to help separate the eating and cooking space from the living room area.

A small hallway leads from the living room to the two upstairs bedrooms. The kids slept up here. When we moved in, they were 1 and 5 so we didn't want to separate them.

That meant, Landen slept in the Master.

Madelyn was really excited to see her room photographed.

The Master Bath wins the title of "Biggest Transformation."

The lowest level of the Split consisted of a den, the third bedroom, a 3/4-bath and a laundry/utility room.

Our "corner office."

The 3/4-bath has a stand-up shower, and we left everything original. The only update came in the form of paint.

This backyard played host to many a neighborhood lacrosse game and soccer match. We built a new shed a couple of summers ago.

The past 5 years were some of the most trying, triumphant and rewarding experiences of my life. We learned a lot, but especially about what we're capable of. We took a chance on this Tri-Level in 2012, and I am so happy to have it included in the story of our lives.

Photo credit goes to our incredible real estate team, whose partnership we are indebted to. I decided to post these photos to show our faraway relatives, who may not have had a chance to see the house.

What do you think?
