The Mountain Houghtons

The evolution of our Garner Valley Ranch from 2012-2014   Indoors Tour

October 2012, we bought "Mountain View Ranch". The remodeling is still in progress, but

the following pictures show the before and after and where we are two years later, October 2014.

The interior will be complete when I install oak floor throughout, some day.
