House Pictures




So here are the long-promised house pictures. I am only posting before becuase the afters are not quite ready. How do you like the Chinese wallpaper? It is down now. I can't tell you how satisfying that was. Gracie woke up and said, "What happened to the picture?" Sorry Grace.
Next we have the bathroom. Isn't it a beauty! What are people thinking? It is all down, but still in sheetrock and plywood. Anyway, no you can see a little of what we are dealing with and why we have so much to do!

Oh Heather! The house is so so cute - and just perfect for a starter. I can feel your pain...Andrew and I have all sorts of plans to upgrade and paint and change little things, but once we wrote out the list we realized that we are in a little over our heads :) We have been doing great at keeping up what was already there, but so far we have only painted one room in the basement...and it isn't even finished yet...and we have been in the house for two months now. If you find any motivation, pass it my way!

Love your house, Heather! It looks wonderful.... despite what you need to do! Hope all goes well. I will send out an email to my ward members and ask around to neighbors and such for the Wicked tickets. You are going to LOVE it! I can't wait for you to see it on Broadway- it is so well done and amazing! I'll let you know if I have any takers!

You took down such a great piece of art?? Did you learn nothing from me while we were roommates? J/k - that was an eyesore that had to go, no doubt! Your house has so much potential and it's no longer a wonder why you have so much to do. Starter homes are great, but the work involved! yikes! Good luck with everything....and being pregnant!

Super cute house! Good luck with all you are planning to do with it. Be sure to upload some of the beautiful fall colors from back there. We don't get quite the same fall here in Utah! Hope you're all doing well and enjoying your new home.

Hi,

Your house looks so cute. Good luck with all the remodeling. We bought a fixer-upper too. It has been both fun and stressful. Congratulations on baby #3. Your family is adorable!

Heath the pictures gloss over the horrific-ness of the beginning. You all cleaned up nicely so it doesn't begin to give you credit. I am so excited to see what you've been up to next weekend. (I mean who could truly understand the bathroom walls unless they could see the velvet texture first hand).
