Jon and Lori Strope have been hard at work since our last visit to their Mill Village fixer-upper. Renovations are still underway, but most of the work left to be done is purely cosmetic.
The kitchen is near complete. Appliances are in their designated spots, the subway tile backsplash is finished, countertops have been installed and the original sink has been re-installed. Only a few cabinet doors are missing.
The home’s two fireplaces—in the living room and master bedroom—have been tiled. Mantles, which include new components and some original to the home, now sit ready to be painted.
The master bedroom has gotten a few coats of paint and new crown molding, handmade by Jon to match the trim throughout the house.
Up next on the agenda are the sunroom, guest room and exterior.
The Stropes’s move-in date in still up-in-the-air and will depend heavily on their progress over the next several weeks and the sale of their previous home.
Keep an eye out for a completed home tour and more insight from our renovators, Lori and Jon!
