Ornery Vent…

Our carpet was supposed to show up Thursday. Nothing. So we figured maybe Friday. Nothing. We were supposed to move our furniture into the new bedroom this weekend. Not anymore. Grrr! I really hate it when stuff like this happens. On the up side, dh and I went out and bought curtains last night!! Yay!! Can’t wait to get them up…except we have to...

Living Room Pics

Here’s the before and after! The wood on the wall to the left is where the hall to the addition is. Of course, this is what was under the wood paneling and ceiling tiles. The space behind the couches was where 2 windows were (where the addition is now). Left wall is opposite to previous shot. Here’s the after! Wall opposite to previous shot....

I’m back finally!! The past couple weeks we’ve been living on beanbags in the kitchen 😀 It’s been interesting to say the least. Our living room is now finished and we’ve only got one more week for the addition. I SOOO love it! I’m sorry for ignoring drops and awards and promise I’ll get to them soon. When I logged into my email earlier,...

How Was Christmas?

Ours went well…the kids got plenty spoiled dh and I got everything we asked for 🙂 Anything wild or crazy happen to anyone? Oh, on Christmas Eve our construction crew took out our living room windows and boarded them up..then dh took off our ugly paneling on that wall. So the one wall is hideous! I’ll try to get a pic up.

Messy Yard.

Our back yard is a huge mess! There’s a massive pile of dirt and a big hole! Yep, our addition is beginning finally!! I’m stoked. Today the concrete is coming. Our 3 yr old is loving the big tractors and is excited for the concrete mixer…that’s how we got him to go to bed last night. We told him he’d need to get good...

Pics of Room!

So here’s the room, before and after. One room down, 2 to go (and a bathroom)! In the before pic, the floor really was all splotchy and uneven…it wasn’t dirt. My dd has been sleeping in her brother’s room during all this…sometimes in his bed, sometimes on the floor (thick futon mattress). Either one can be in either place at any given time. It’s...

More Work…

My dad decided that while we were redoing my dd’s floor, it would look good repainted, too. And while we were at it, might as well paint the trim! More work! It’s going to be a totally different room. So today is the second coat and the floor has to be stained. Wow…That’s what happens when you buy a 1920’s farmhouse! Dd’s coming home...

A Tornado Hit My House.

Ok, not really. Catchy title, though, right? My house just LOOKS like it’s been hit by a tornado. And at this point, it would be easier to deal with. My parents are here visiting for a week and a few days. So all their stuff is around. Which is fine…I’m used to that part. *back story= When we first got our dog, he went...

We Have Plans!!

YAY!!! We’re going to add on to our house…not much, just a master suite. But it’s much needed! We’ve been playing phone tag with 2 different architects and contractor all summer. And neither architect worked out (long story). So we asked my brother to do it and he made a deal with Paul….drawings for web site designing/building. And now we have our drawings!! I...
