Our Little House

Hi There!

Don't think I've totally forgotten about blogging, life has just been so crazy around here lately.  But, I am happy to announce that we finally closed on our house and have actually been living here for over two weeks now!  Things are still crazy; we are still in the middle of several projects, there is still cleaning to be done, and there are still boxes to be unpacked, but we are here.  In our very own home.  And it feels so good!  So, as promised a few pics.  (This is just what we currently have on our computer, without any rhyme or reason so to speak, things will get more organized in the future, I'm sure ;)

In front of our house!

Before: Ugly rock fireplace, ugly stained carpet

During: demo-ing ugly rock fireplace

Before: "Den" off of dining area

During: Clint framing in the wall
During: Ripping up old carpet & pad to reveal hardwood
During: Original brick fireplace & sanding floors to refinish

During: Sanding floors
During: Sanding floors

During: Sweeping up pounds of sanding dust

During: Applying finish to floors

There are no after pics right now because we are still living in the "during" stage of renovations.  I hope in a month or two we will be able to say we are done with the projects we currently are working on, but by then I'm sure we will have started on new projects that won't be done.  I think it is just a continual process when you buy a fifty year old house with the intention of re-doing a lot of things!  Good thing we enjoy this sort of thing!
