Some parts....

Some parts of my bathroom look like this:



A Quick Update in Pictures


We've been working, but it's slow and not very exciting so far. And it's really hard to see what all we've done, but last weekend I realized we only have 15 weeks until the baby is due. (I honestly don't think I've been preparing for a baby to actually come, so it was a bit of a shock to me.) But I figured I could share some of the pictures!


Building Built-ins


Oh, this is fun to share! The new bookshelves are built!

It didn't take nearly as long as I thought it would, but Jeremy did help quite a bit. If it had all been left to me, we'd still be waiting.

Working on the House


Work has begun again on this old house! And it feels so good!

A Honey-Do List for Upstairs


The kids need to move upstairs, y'all. Not only do they need their own rooms (all three are in one downstairs, and Noemi is in our room), but I need my own room! We need the space too. We're all tired of being cramped downstairs. So we've been working upstairs and it's progressing quickly on Jeremy's side of things and slowly (so, so slowly) on my side.

The Floors


We've made some progress in the last couple of weeks! The flat of land for the barn is ready and we even have the post holes dug. The kitchen has a new (to us) oven that does not smell like burning rats when it is cooking. Jeremy has even caught a couple of rats in all his many traps.


We are in a mess!


Ohmygoodnesswhatwerewethinking!??!?!


The Master Bedroom's Walls


We are slowly making progress on the master bedroom. The master bathroom still looks like a gutted room. But I have to trust Jeremy because this is how he works. He takes forever to figure out how to do something, and then finally does it really quickly.

The Master Bedroom's Ceiling


So while Jeremy has been taking apart the mudroom/bathroom, I've been slowly plugging away at our bedroom. I'm finally on the other side of the messiness, and it's starting to clean up a little. (And then I find one more thing to caulk!)


Bathroom Plans



The fun part of putting in a new bathroom is the decorating. Also, this is stressful. Especially when two people are decorating who have drastically different tastes. I love Jeremy, and he is very, very good at balancing me out, but we do not have the same taste in decor at all.

This is both good for us and hard for us. It teaches us to compromise and well, then we actually have to compromise.


Still Demolishing


So "Demo Day" is misleading. It's more like Demo Weeks. And the Fixer Upper show just shows the fun parts, the boys have been pretty appalled at the mess that they have to clean up after the fun.

But, boy, have they had fun during the demo.

First Demo Days


We worked on our new old house last weekend! Let me tell you, this house remodel is going to help our marriage in BIG ways. At least, that's what I'm hoping. Because the decisions we have to make together are LIFE THREATENING. Like, what color to paint the wainscoting that we are possibly going to put up in the new bathroom.

Compromise is tough, y'all.

The Floor Plans


I started writing about the things we got done this weekend on the house, but I realized I needed to share the plans first so you can see where I'm going. We've got a lot to do! (Here's the news about our new homestead, in case you missed it!)
