Renovation

Sorry to have been M.I.A. for so long now. Life stepped up a notch and I have been frazzled dealing with it all! We finally got our house back from the renters and now it is renovation time. Not just a small renovation. No. This is a grand scale remodel. I am so excited about how the house will look when it is all done. It is all the decisions to make along the way that have me exhausted. Then you make a decision and the builder/plumber/electrician says it won't work. Back to the beginning! All mixed in with Spring Break, makes for good, crazy times. Did I mention that the kids have been sick too? I am happy to report though, they are now feeling much better just in time to return to school.
I thought I would share some before pics of the house and keep you updated as we go along.
The kitchen then (please note the gorgeous ceiling tiles!):



And now...


It looks a lot worse than it is! The cupboards will go back up after the walls have been re-sheeted and painted. There will also be new counter tops.

The front room/lounge then:


And now...:

The little room being framed in the corner here is going to be the office.

I will show you some more tomorrow, maybe of the bathroom. Hope you are all well.
