The Never Ending Project...

So I promised a blog with some updates on the house renovation/demolition/never-ending project... Of course, as usual, I am behind on updating my pictures, so these are not totally current...we are a little farther along now, but it will give you a little glimpse into our world of construction.

This was the day we closed on the house. Soon wanted to get straight to work! He's been working really hard on the house and I honestly don't know how he has all the energy to go to his daytime job early in the morning and then straight to the house to work on that. It's definitely a HUGE project that we're undertaking and it's definitely taken it's toll on all of us in different ways...I will be very happy when it's all over and we can resume some sort of normalcy.

The back of the's a really nice size yard which will be great for Maddie to play in! Eventually we'll have the kitchen bump out and a wrap around steps, right?

Some of the construction pictures...the house was really a MESS when we bought  it, but remarkably we were both able to see the potential. Literally, everything had to come out and was trashed!

This is the last picture that we have uploaded. This was after the new windows were put in! Since then, the rooms have been prepared for dry wall, we're waiting for the siding to come in, the brick has been redone in the front, we're working on the plumbing, ordering toilets, picked out roofing...
The latest is we settled on a mailbox,'s the little things sometimes. But seriously, the mailbox needed to go with the style of the house, so we couldn't just get any mailbox.

I will definitely have more updates soon, as every day bring something new with the house! (sometimes good and sometimes's a roller coaster ride)
