iStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) —  After a few nips and tucks, the White House is making its big reveal.

A new batch of photos has been released illustrating 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue’s facelift, which kicked into high-gear earlier this summer when President Trump began his 17-day working vacation at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

The president returned to the White House on Sunday.

“The White House’s newly renovated Roosevelt Room looks incredible,” tweeted Cliff Sims, special assistant to the president.

 All of the renovations were conducted by General Service Administration designers.

While the White House’s rooms were gussied up, a lot of the upgrades are not visible. These include overhauling the 27-year-old heating and air conditioning system and upgrading the IT system.

Leaks at the White House were also fixed, and the Navy mess kitchen and West Wing lower lobby were also renovated.

During the renovations, West Wing staffers who were not with Trump in New Jersey were temporarily relocated to an office building next to the White House.
