1. Blue Shutters
Allie expressed her desire for blue shutters on a white house. In the final paint job, Noah was able to provide this for her, creating the perfect image of what she was looking for.
2. Third-Story Porch
The original House Renovations had two porches: one on the second story and one on the third story. Noah attaches his pickup truck to the railing of the second-story porch to tear it down.
The first time Noah and Allie visit the house, Noah points out that the staircase was where the previous owner proposed to his wife. That’s why he puts in so much effort to make sure the stairs are well-maintained.
4. Dining Room
The room that would become the dining room started with a neglected piano and cobwebs. However, Noah was able to save the piano and make a dining table to place in the room.
5. First-Story Porch Swing
On the side porch, there’s a porch swing. Once Noah and Allie reunite, Noah reads to Allie while they both sit on the porch swing.
6. Painting Room
One of the biggest things Allie wanted was a painting room. In the second story, Noah was able to give Allie the painting room she wanted – the windows even overlook the water for a gorgeous view.
7. Master Bedroom
The master bedroom is also upstairs on the opposite end of the home from the painting room. After Noah and Allie have spent the night together, Noah leaves a series of arrows on the floor that point her toward the painting room.
8. Structural House Renovations
This is probably the most substantial part of the renovations. Noah likely would have had to replace the roof, rewire the electrical systems, add plumbing, stabilize the chimney, level the foundation, and refinish the floor, among other things to undo the years of neglect.
Lastly, Noah would have had to do some landscaping. The overgrown brambles and fallen trees all got cleaned up, transformed completely into a tidy yard. This makes it look beautiful and avoid foundation damage from trees nearby.
This is definitely a lot to do to transform a neglected home into something beautiful. These renovations would be difficult enough with an entire crew, but the fact that Noah was able to do all of these renovations on his own definitely shows his affection for Allie. Next time you watch The Notebook, you’ll be able to understand exactly how much effort Noah puts into his attempts to show Allie his devotion.
