Cozy Brick House: Before.

Here are some miscellaneous "before" pictures of our home. We are working hard and hope to have some "after" shots to show off at the end of next week.

Prepare yourselves, this isn't pretty...







The children were paid by their father to remove the wallpaper border in the basement.
They did a fine job!

Fireplace resuscitation.

  2. Seriously scared!!!

    Just kidding. I think it's so cool that you are taking on this huge project. It will be completely worth it in the end. I cannot wait to see your house when it's all done! I have no doubt that it will look beautiful.

  5. Danyelle,
    There must be nothing worse than doing a remodel. But theres probably nothing better than a remodeled house.
    I wish I had A house to remodel. I wish I had a house. Period. I get so jealous of Nan and you guys because you're at a different stage of life than I. How much I want to be like you girls. Thanks for letting me read your blogs. I have a good time.

  6. We are ripping out our kitchen tile right now, I can't even imagine ripping out our whole house. Good luck, I'm excited to see your after pics.

  7. I totally do not envy the "house being ripped apart" days. But yours is turning out beautiful. Mitch would give anything to have a super cool shop put up too. Good luck.
