New House Update!



Since we got the keys to our new house we've been covered in primer, scratches and dirt. We have been BUSY!

The first thing Cody did was spray a coat of primer on all the bedroom walls and paint the ceilings. 

Then we ripped up carpet in all the bedrooms, we were really hoping to hit the jackpot in the hardwood lottery but the only hardwood to be found was the original plank flooring in the girls room and hallway leading to it. It would have needed a lot of TLC to be refinished so we made the decision to lay laminate throughout the whole upstairs.

The living room, dining room and laundry room walls also got primed.

Cody ripped out a portion of the kitchen cabinets, and also started tearing down the drywall to reveal the brick next to the oven. We found some really cool old wallpaper on the brick, and three different linoleum floor patterns under the cabinets.

Oh and our new fridge arrived! 

 Here are some before/during/current pictures::


(To do still: take down drop ceiling, strip paint on wood beam, new cabinets, back splash, paint)

It will be about two months before our cabinets are done and installed, but here is a sneak peak at what we have planned.
