House!


Dan and I have been SO extremely busy with trying to get our new house live-in-ready. It is insane how much time we have put into this place. I just love it all though.
This is what the house looks like on the outside.
(note: this was before we closed so that is why the lawn is so crazy looking)
The first night we came in and removed the woodstove and pulled up the old carpet tack strips and staples. fun fun.


We had Mom O and G-ma T and sister R come and watch Quinn for us so we could actually get to work without the little one.


Dan put in a new front door.



Then it was time to start to sand the hardwood floors.
We did the den, dining room, downstairs bedroom and hallway.



Then I laid the first coat of polyAfter that had time to dry we started painting. We painted Quinn's room (which was a pepto pink), both hallways, the dining room and the den.

The colors weren't so bad before but it made the room look much smaller. Also it was in horrible condition.

So that is pretty much what we have been up to in the last week. We just don't have pictures of everything!

I think the lighter colors do seem to open up the space an make it look larger. Love the new door. I love the durning pictures. Makes my heart warm. Can you post pictures of Quinns room?

Love you all VERY much. This is one instance where hard work really does pay off. Just look at the fruits of your labor.
