Hello there! To preface, keep in mind that when I say "we", I don't necessarily mean me. Lol. We have an awesome team of family members that have stepped up to help make our home more homey. I am very grateful for the uncles, cousins, grandparents, parents, and siblings who continue to share their talents with us!
Now for picutures…
Here are a few pictures of the back yard. It has a good size patio (complete with a ladder and bucket from cleaning the gutters!). There are plenty of weeds to go around. And the two giant trees will soon fulfill thier destiny of becoming firewood.
We spent Friday night taping and plastic wrapping the whole house. It seriously looks like a haunted house, especially in the hallway where there is no light. Towards the end, I was using the extra pieces of plastic to cover things (like the fridge in the middle of the living room and the fireplace), hence the extra tape. Hehe.
All new vapor barrier is down in the crawl space! The washer and dryer that came with the house were outside waiting to be taken to the appliance recycle center and someone stopped in the middle of the road to ask if I wanted to get rid of it. I said yes to which he replied "I'll be back in 5 minutes." Ha! I love it when things are that easy!
We (again, not me) ripped out the cadet heaters throughout the house and patched the holes.
The landing area of the fireplace was all broken up so we ripped it out and are placing new brick down.
Last weekend we suited up like Breaking Bad characters and scraped 200 lbs of popcorn ceilings. It looks so much better!
That's it for now. Texturing was going in yesterday and I'm very excited to go see how it turned out! This week the furnace and air conditioning go in so we can't do much until that's done. Then we paint!
More to come!
