It's hard to believe this is what's left of the house. The picture I posted previously is from the pond looking up at the front of the house...this picture (the after picture) is from the driveway, which is to the left of the house.
I told my sister it wasn't that real until I saw the photos & to be honest it still isn't. It's just hard to believe it isn't there anymore. Over the years they had done a lot of remodeling to this house. My sister had a new kitchen (result of the fire I mentioned before) & new bathroom, new utility room, and remodeled the breakfast room. They built a huge deck (which is still there and fine), put down new floors, & did lots and lots of painting. The driveway was also a nice new addition & it's still fine as well.
