I thought it was about time for me to post some pics of the house! We bought a “fixer-upper” and Dan is always busy doing something to it!
We’ve had the house for a year and a half now. In that time we’ve: put on new roof, new siding, waterproofed the basement, installed central air/heat, new windows, new doors, new well, new oil tank, repaved the driveway… you get the idea!
The entire house was paneled on the inside, and Dan is going room by room and putting up drywall and redoing the flooring.
When we bought our house, it looked like this from the front~
We had a new roof, siding, and windows done and now it looks like this~
One of rooms Dan re-did was our familyroom.
Here is what it looked like before ~
He took down the panelling, put up drywall, and put in the floor.
Here it is after ~
When we first bought the house, this is what our foyer looked like ~
With so much to do, we’re only able to do the work in small bits. So, in the meantime, before Dan could actually overhaul it, we had new doors put in and I painted it the panelling white so it wouldn’t be so dark ~
On January 2nd, he was ready to start in on the foyer. So he pulled the panelling off the walls. He is currently doing the drywall, and then will put in a new stairway bannister and new ceramic tiles.
Nothing like living in a constant construction site! But it will look nice when it’s completed. 🙂
