Well, for all of those who have been wondering why I haven't been on much lately, besides Peyton, here is the other reason....
We decided to do some remodeling of part of our house and make it feel more like "our" home
Here are some pics of the process and what we started and ended with.
Well, here is what we started with three weeks ago ( we did ALL of this ourselves, while I am also working 40 - 56 hours per week on midnights
NASTY carpet.... it looked like a sandbox under the carpet pad when we ripped it up!!!!
AHHHH, the teardown
Old, crappy 5/16 inch drywall ALL removed down to bare studs
This corner was sectioned off with a small wall that had a fireplace behind it. this is how the whole project got started. We decided to rip out the fireplace and install a wood stove for heat and not spend soooo much damn money on propane
We ripped out the wall and fireplace, then I built up a small platform for the woodstove.
New 5/8 inch drywall, paint, and lights. Stephanie stayed up ALL night and painted the room when I was at work. She was still painting when I got home at 7:30 AM.
Tile is almost done on the platform for the woodstove
same light.... different lighting..
Which brings us to today....
Just finished the flooring today around noon
We still have trim to do around all the windows and doors, install new bedroom and bathroom doors also trim around the floor.
We think it looks soooooo nice and are amazed with the results. What do you think????
