Re: Our journey home...

Wow! we have all three bedrooms painted! didn't get Evan's room pic, but all that's left is window sills, carpet and baseboards. The upstairs bathroom is all but done. We have the mirror and light fixture but haven't got them up yet. The guys are working on the doorframes too. the sunroom and laundry have drywall and mud. Cabinet doors are all painted. The uppers are hung. need to wait to hang the lowers until the countertops get done. They started to patch some of the bad spots on the wood floors too. Dh temp fixed the front stairs, and I painted the front tile patchwork (where the apt door was). I distressed the cabinets but you can't really tell in the pics.

Looks great Vanessa! I cant believe the transformation. I do not have that kind of abstract vision, I wish I did.

Re: Our journey home...

Thanks. It was really hard in the beginning to see as well. It still has it's flaws, my dh isn't a professional, but it's still way better than it was. I'm really falling in love with this house. Praying that we will be in before Christmas. How nice would it be to have our first memories be that time of year?

Re: Our journey home...

Laundry room pics up. Painted, flooring down, water tank in place. (not hooked up yet though) dh still needs to paint the metal of the fuse box so it blends in. there's going to be a utility sink next to the water tank eventually. all that is left is the light fixture and the trim.

Whoot ! just scored 6 wood dining chairs for $30 on CL! making 12 total to go 'round our dining table. We should all be able to sit at the table for Christmas dinner this year. Yay!!!

Re: Our journey home...

Mail box post in and done! (had an old slot in the wall, which I hated! Working on the main bathroom, downstairs. Plus going to do some more work on the back of the house, finishing the back wall. Got the window sills upstairs done, and going to lay the carpet soon upstairs.
