It’s CRAZY that we’ve been working on this house for over three years now! It only seems like yesterday that we got the keys to the house – and immediately tore out the built-in bench in the old sunroom, and starting ripping down the wallpaper in the dining room. Every few months, when certain projects get too overwhelming to even think about, I look back at the photos I took when we first bought the house and I realize just how much we’ve gotten done.
Yes, there’s TONS left to do, but let’s celebrate just how much we’ve gotten done in the last 3 years:
I would never have been able (or wanted to) tackle this house without my handy husband. Everything would be clean, painted, and surfaced fixed, but nothing would be truly fixed. Renovations truly are like being on a roller coaster, and I’ve had more than one plumber / plasterer / etc tell us this is a great way to ruin our marriage, but we’ve had our share of fun (as well as not-fun).
Since this post is already epically long, I’ll share the upstairs next week.
