Home Sweet Home . . .

. . . kind of.
We FINALLY closed on our new house!!!!
It is a TOTAL fixer-upper, so we will still be in the apartment for about another month or so. We are getting pretty tired of being cooped up in this teeny-tiny place, but now there's a light at the end of the tunnel.
We have had four homes and all of them have been fixer-uppers, but this one by far requires the most amount of work. Clay has done the work himself on all of our other homes, but this time we're calling in the experts! This one needs a TON of TLC!!!! I hope we're up for the challenge- it's a WHOLE new world this time!
The plumbing work began today, so here's a tiny
sneak peek into what will soon be our home sweet home!

Before shots:
This is a bathroom directly off of the dining room- what was the previous owner thinking?!?
You may have to enlarge the pic, but there is duct tape around the base of the toilet!!!!
This room will soon be gone. We're using part of this space to add space in the kitchen and the rest of it will become a storage closet.

The utility room
I'm NOT WASHING A THING in this dingy space!!!!

The kitchen

The master vanity

The master shower
More pics to come as the demo begins tomorrow!!!! :)


  1. WHY ON EARTH ARE YOU CHANGING ANYTHING???? I'm very jealous of the size of your laundry room!

  2. Can I sleep in your utility room when I come and visit?

  3. Looks like a major project! Glad you have someone coming to help and get it knocked out! Can't wait to see more photos! Just figured out this commenting thing!
