Progress update!

We’re getting so close! The minute the trim went on, I started getting excited. I mean, it’s not like I wasn’t excited about the studs and garage floor and roof (pssst: I wasn’t) but the finishing touches are so much more impactful! My mother-in-law stopped over and she nearly walked into a wall upstairs because she was so distracted by the bathroom finishings, haha. That’s what we’re going for…we want everyone to walk into walls because they’re so busy swiveling their head around! Here’s some photos of the current progress and a shnazzy video tour (don’t worry, the music is just the intro, not through the whole video).

All that’s left is window flower boxes and shutters (I have some big flower pots full of annuals for the stairs)

Progress Update!

This is our third video progress update/tour…second if you don’t count the initial walk-through as a progress update. Everything is opened up to the point where we are putting it all back together. The walls are where they need to be, the windows are where they need to be, the pipes are where they need to be and the outlets and lights are where they need to be. At this point we are just put the finishing touches on everything before we wrap it all in drywall. We have a lot of work ahead of us in refinishing all of the trim, repainting the cabinets and refinishing the floors.

There is a solid video recap below, and pictures of all of the rooms below the video. Can’t you envision it finished? It’s coming together!

The downstairs bedroom is being used for storage...is this stuff even ours??

We are getting excited as our “third baby” comes due. We have everything in place now so the finishing can begin. There is a lot of work ahead, but we are excited about all the improvements we’ve made, and plan┬áto┬áspend a lot of family time over here this summer…maybe the kids will help…haha! I’ll kind of be sad when everything is “decided” and “finished” and we can no longer dream about what we could do here.
