wife to Jake, mommy to my 3 crazy munchkins, Lily (7), Jonah (5.5) and Kate (4). Taking this crazy blessed life one day at a time.


"Before" pics: Inside- living room/kitchen

Well, we have been beyond busy working at the house. Lots has been accomplished and there is still a lot left to do.

 Yesterday, Jake finished re-roofing our house! It looks awesome. I haven't had a chance to take a picture yet, but I will eventually. The electrical work is making great progress. All rooms except Jonah's have been primed, the ceilings have all been painted, Jake started painting the bathroom and the girls room today! I am SO excited to finally see nice clean color on the walls!! Once the rooms are painted, we can get the carpet installed in the bedrooms and the hardwood refinished in the living room/dining area and hallway.

Also, this weekend, I got to go over to the house and work on the yard! It was awesome.

So, here are "before" pictures of the living room/dining area and kitchen.

Living room. Front door. Part of the "dining" area

The NASTY wall in the living room. You can see where they had all their pictures- that's how dirty all the walls and ceilings are (it's from a bad furnace, not smoke)

Entry into the kitchen (which has been completely gutted)



Dining area. We were going to remove the window, but found some termite damage right underneath the window, so we decided to put in a sliding door. It worked out well because we were thinking of putting one in anyway and we will be putting in a deck or patio right outside of the sliding doors :)

Front door and entry closet

View of living room from standing near the front door. I LOVE the fireplace and built in bookshelves!

Your house has lots of wonderful potential! We bought a house that needed updating and remodeling 9 years ago and are still working on it. But it's a wonderful feeling when you get a room accomplished and exactly the way you envisioned it! Have fun!

I agree about the potential. I love the window over the sink. You're going to enjoy watching the birds and the sunsets. Can't wait to see the after pictures. Sounds like you're moving fast!
