We've been busy!

So, first of all.


This is Charlie, and he is a Mini Aussie and is AWESOME

He arrived one week before all hell broke loose in our house.

You remember our heinous pink floor ?

Yeah. That one. Gross.

Well, we got some new ones. But we couldn't JUST have new floors. Someone had the brilliant idea to expand our master bedroom and make a HUGE walk in closet/dressing room. (It was me, I'm the one with brilliant ideas!)

Instead of just installing new floors, now we had to move some walls around.... and if we were gunna move some walls around, we might as well build a built in bookshelf, a linen closet and kitty litter drawer and install a dishwasher, and put some tile in the entries, and redo the front closet.

The list just kinda kept getting longer and longer.

Here it goes!

Lino starting to go from the kitchen and dining room!

 The men-folk get to work. Reid and our dads did all the real work. I helped by staying out of the way and playing with a puppy

Closet and old bedroom door removed, Bob is cleaning up

You're supposed to be working dad, not flipping us off. New bedroom wall going up

This used to be Reid's closet, now it will be a built in bookshelf/linen closet/kitty litter drawer. The bedroom feels so HUGE already!

Drywall patching beginning, only 98347598475 more coats of mud to go

First coats of grey paint done

The "feature" wall is left to paint yet.

 LOOOOOOOOKKKKKK FLOOOOOOOOOORS!!!!! We got this kick ass strand woven bamboo floor from Lowes during a save the tax event and basically got the underlay for free. Not a bad deal. We have stupidly sized registers and cannot find replacements so have to clean and paint them, eventually

Bamboo extends all the way into the dining room and kitchen and looks wonderful with the white cabinets!

Beginnings of the HUGE linen closet and kitty litter drawer

More stuff happened

Our SUPER pretty "lace" hex tiles, also from Lowes. These look so good. We still have to grout and finish the edges

And in the back entry too!

Closet is painted. Dresser assembled, and shelves starting to go up!


AHHHH It's coming together! I've put some stuff away and can now find most of my clothes!

Vanity area set up. Needs some finishing touches and whatnot, but we've made some serious progress!

That's it for now. We will update once we've finished installing and painting the rest of the baseboards and the 9873948573 other things we have left to finish....
