I just want to post some "before" and "middle" pictures. We aren't to the "after" yet, but hey. We've got pictures of the skeleton! Considering it has been just a little over three months since we bought the house I think we're doing pretty good. *Pat self on back* yay!

Heads up: This is a super long post, mostly filled with pictures. Enjoy!

The Living Room:

The Bathroom:

We also extended the bathroom by about a foot so the tub won't be crammed into the wall like it is in the "before" picture.

The Dining Room:

We knocked out the wall dividing the kitchen and dining room to make it one big room. (see second picture below!)

The Kitchen:

We extended the ceiling and it feels so open!

We will be putting the wall back to recreate the 4th bedroom, but the door will go through the kitchen/dining area instead of through the mudroom. We had to take out the "before" wall to rip up all the rotting particle board. (ew.) Now we just have to sheet over this floor so we can eventually tile.

Bedroom 1:

Yes, My Honeypie is trying to blend in with the wall. We ripped out the closet and we will build built-in bunk beds where the closet used to be. Don't worry people, we are putting in a closet again, just somewhere else. Stand by.

Let me explain what this is. That thing in the middle of the room is the second bathroom we are adding in. To the left is where we will replace the closet we took out. I don't have a picture of the whole room (durh), but it is still a very decent sized room. yay!

Bedroom 2:

Our bathroom! I am so very excited for this. Very.

We are moving right along!
