How far we've come

To put it all in perspective....   


Looked like this not too long ago

This kitchen...

Looked like this when we started (before cleanout and demo)

I'll be posting more before and after photos when I have more time (like sometime next month when I have NO weekend plans [other than book club and my usual local volunteer stuff]-- I am SO excited!!)

These are some shots of my dad's old workbench, which Jay did an incredible job restoring

The "chocolate" room... I took these during the party when everyone was outside, so that's why so many of these photos are cluttered up

The living room and dining room used to have a wall. Good thing we opened it all up, because whoever cut the hole in the side originally didn't put a header in... the entire 2nd floor would have fallen in eventually.


  1. wow, that is such an amazing transformation! i remember you showed me a few of those before shots a long time ago. really incredible what you've done with the place.

  2. Thanks Emily! :) It's been a lot of work... we're down to one bedroom that needs to be finished.

    Of course during the hurricane we had a problem with leaking in our upstairs bathroom. Hopefully we can get that fixed and not have to worry about it anymore.

  3. that's too bad about your bathroom, but obviously it could've been a lot worse...i'm glad to hear you made it through sandy without too much damage. i bet the chickies were scared. :(
