Newest Project

I have not written in quite a while-with fairly good reason, I must say.  We bought a new home.  This new home is requiring much of my attention.  It is a sprawling 4700 square foot home that has not been updated in at least 30 years, some of the rooms even longer.  I am going to begin posting pictures of our progress on the house.  For now, I am going to post some before pictures so you can get an idea of what it looks like now and how busy we are going to be over the next few months.  These pictures were taken with the previous owner’s belongings still intact.  We are working on this house in increments.  The first room we worked on was the master.  We changed the wall color, ceiling color and the trim color.  We also hung chair rail and crown molding-over 100 linear feet.  We are currently working on the utility room.  John is building a mudroom type of furniture piece that will be on the wall opposite of the washer and dryer.  We painted a chalk board wall and he hung crown molding.  We are about to lay tile in there as well.  I will be posting updates to this project periodically.  And to answer the question, “No, we have not moved in and no, we do not know when we will be moving in.”  🙂

Front room when you enter house. This will be our formal dining room.

Sunroom on the back of house. This room runs the length of the family room and kitchen. It will be able to accomodate a table and chairs on one end and a sitting area on the opposite end.

This will be our family room. We are going to take a wall down between this room and the kitchen.

Living room fireplace. This room is attached to the kitchen.

Bathroom in east wing of house

Longest hallway, ever-this leads to the east wing of the house.

Utility Room-you enter this room from the garage. I am going to love this room!

Kitchen-we intend on moving this bar out about 3 1/2 ft. to enlarge the kitchen.

Master Suite

Master Suite-over 700 square feet

A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
