nest things to do

Photo Friday #17

“It’s going to look worse before it looks better.”
That’s definitely our current motto for the house. We’ve done a lot of demo and have started putting things back together. Just about one more week and we should be ready to move in!!!
Here are the “worse” pictures. I’ll update the “better” pictures soon:
Here’s my dad, hard at work:

Here are my brothers doing a fine masking job:

The gentleman and N8…not so hard at work 😉 and our ripped out baseboard and trim pile:

The beginnings of a new window, done by N8 and his dad:

The people who lived here before were kinda nasty…so I’m actually cleaning grease off the walls and ceiling so my dad can paint it, yuck!

Demo-ing [nasty] carpet and realizing there was some awesome fake wood tile stuff underneath. Maybe we should keep that?

Starting to demo the guest bath. The wood paneling on the floor was water damaged (really? water damaged in the bathroom!?!? go figure)


Demo is done in the master bath and ready for tile!
The back side of the house. We replaced that large transparent window with a smaller opaque one. Much more “bathroom friendly”, hah.
got the window in!
My brother and jared had some down time so they started putting our pile of rocks (there was a rather large pile of rocks in the side yard) to use…looking good!
Well, that’s it for now. I’ll post more as we go on!

You are lucky to have such an awesomely talented father, gr8 friends, and brothers who are willing to do slave labor 🙂
