We were so excited to be able to buy a house almost 2 months ago!! We got a forclosure, so this house definitely needed some TLC. But for the price we paid for it, we were more than happy to start ourselves a little project and fix it up! Well, that little project turned into a huge project! With us both working full time and doing the house ourselves, it's going to take some time. Sure, we could hire it out, get it done quick, and spend a fortune! OR do it all ourselves, save A LOT of money, be tired 24/7, and learn to be very VERY patient! I am so lucky to have Brett! He is the handiest man I know, and it's sure paid off with this house! I've learned that he can pretty much do anything! I've also learned that I'm not too bad of a painter either! That's been my job, since I'm not the type who loves labor work. But what girl does? I painted the whole inside of the house! With the help, of course, from my mother! My sister helped when she could when she didn't have the kids! Kids around paint... no good! Even though this has been one stressful project, I know it will be worth it! It's pretty cool because we can customize this house to exactly what we want. It's fun to see the progress, where we started to where we are now! One thing is for sure...I can't wait for this house to be finished and have a home sweet home again! Here is a pic of the outside! Once we are finished with the inside, our next project with be the outside of the house! One step at a time! I'll post before and after pics when we are finished remodeling! Hopefully just another couple weeks! I love my mom and all but we are so ready to move out of her house and into ours!
