New House Update


I know you're all dying to know how the house is coming along.  We were able to close 2 weeks earlier than expected and so work has begun!

We are so blessed to have such awesome friends and family who have come up to help a ton.  I kind of feel useless because I can't do anything right now in the house, but we should be painting sometime this week, and then I can actually contribute something.

Here are some shots of the house after demolition and before primer.

Standing at the front door looking in.  Where the paneling is is where the kitchen is.

Standing by the fireplace looking back at the front door.

Looking back down the hallway

A few trees down in the backyard just around the house.  We have to clear out a bunch to get gutters up.

A few more trees down.  :)

Kids entertaining themselves in the front yard.  They don't usually play on the dumpster. 

Now for some after shots:

The same red bedroom pictured above, only this time with Kilz from ceiling to floor.

Looking down the hall to the bedrooms.  What a difference it makes to get rid of all that red!

I know Tyler appreciates me posting this, but I just want to say how lucky I am to have such a hard-working husband.  After using the paint sprayer it looked like he was wearing white mascara.  Not to mention all the paint everywhere else.
But, seriously, he has been stopping at the house every night until 10 or 11 to work on it and all day both Saturdays since we bought it.  I can't believe how much work is done.  Thank you so much to everyone who has come to help.  Especially my father-in-law who has been driving up and staying in his camper to help my wonderful husband get our house ready for us.  I really married into a fantastic family!

More to come soon!
