Renovations






As most of you already know, we are trying to renovate our house so we can sell it in the spring. We're hoping for June, but it may be later than that. We have crapped out more money at Home Depot in the last month than I thought was ever possible. They love us. I'm sure they know us by name when we walk in there now. It's pathetic. If we don't go there one day, it feels like something is missing. We know exactly where everything is, and how much it costs. On the positive side, we have learned ALOT since we started all of this. The first major thing we did was the bathroom. It's about 98% complete. We're just missing baseboards and casings for the doorway, but that's all going in tomorrow. Once they're in, all I have to do are a few paint touch-ups, and voila! One month later, we have a new bathroom. Flooring and all. I thought I'd post a couple of pictures because I'm pretty happy with the outcome. It has been pure hell, but it's very pretty now. I'll show some before and after shots. Okay, one before, and the rest are after.
The next major venture will be the flooring. We are replacing the existing linoleum and carpet on the main level with hardwood (well, laminate) and new linoleum. That will be pretty major, but that's okay....hopefully it pays off in June!
