What a mess!

Wow the projects keep coming. The money keeps going. We have made alot of progress though. We have primed all the walls down stairs, the holes are patched, the cabinets are sanded, and the baseboards are pulled off. We are so close to painting the rooms. Hopefully by next week we can start the painting. We just have a few more little things to get done.


Handy man indeed. Romney is up in the attic fixing the house fan...I have never heard of one until now. Apparently we have one and its supposed to be really cool.




The kitchen prep is almost done! We have taken off the cabinet doors and sanded them down. Yes I did the sanding...very messy. Romney took out the fluorescent lights and put in the recessed lighting above. Go Romney!!!



It already looks so much better with the cabinets that were hanging above the counter GONE!!! It has opened it up so much.




The dreaded doggy door.....gone!!!! patched that puppy up...no pun intended

Erin, it looks so great...I love the work in progress pictures, please keep them coming! And all I gotta say about Romney is he is the handy man of the year.
Can't wait to see the final product.

Looks like things are coming right along with that house of yours! Isn't it fun when things start to take shape! You make me look like a bad wife with all the work you do! I'm the drink and snack fetcher at my house when it's work time!
Kenz is doing really good, she is prego with her 4th! Can you believe her, baby machine! Gotta love her!

I really am sad to see the doggy door go. That has to be the funniest "home improvement" project yet!

I can't even imagine....one day in the future when we get a house and I can only imagine how excited I will be!!!

I can't wait to read the post that says you've moved in! Did you get really creative with your paint? I wanted to go crazy painting, but James said he didn't want to live in a rainbow house. I can't wait to repick paint for our new one, I think that's one of my favorite things. Can't wait to see your colors!!
