Forward Progress

Want to see my house?  The place I have talked about for so long? Here it is!  I love the black, gray and white!

The walkway to the backyard.  I can't take credit for this awesome was all my Mother in-law.

The patio where we have spent so much time.  Really, we eat every meal out here.  The kids ride their bikes and Nathan has created chalk masterpieces time and time again!

Our shed...isn't she cute!  It is like another little house in the backyard.

We have some taming of the landscaping to do, but overall...we adore the outside. 

Maybe because we are trying to steer clear of the inside...LOL.  Week one of renovations are done and the new upstairs bathroom is built.  Plumbing is roughed in and wiring has occurred.  The drywall went up and the first coat of tape is on.  We ended up going 8 X 10 and it is so nice!  We still have 370 square feet of living space up there.  I actually appreciate the division the bathroom has caused because otherwise it would be like decorating a banquet hall!  LOL! 

Here are a few pictures from a couple of days ago when just the frame of the bathroom was being started.  I will share updated ones soon.

Our office wall is completely torn down.  Yep, the room I am typing in right now.  Half is a make shift space where the computer is and the other half is covered with plastic and piping.

And the kitchen gets torn down on Tuesday.  Oh boy!

But it is all forward progress.  It is a mess right now.  Our AC is still broken and we may be looking at a new unit.  Thus, we may not be able to furnish this place for a while.  But it is forward progress.

I will just keep on repeating that!
