Update on Renovations!

It's been awhile since I've written and that's been because we have been BUSY with fixing up the house. It has been some loooong hours but they have been SO worth it! We have done a lot of work and it's so fun how much things are coming together and becoming nice and home-y. My parents came up and helped TONS which was such an added bonus. They painted, scrubbed, cleaned, and helped in so many ways. We are finally moved in now and our first night we spent here was on Thanksgiving which was so perfect as we are so thankful.

Here are a few pictures of the work in progress over the past few weeks. More updated and finished "before and after" pics to come soon!! (I've taken all the before, now I just need to take the afters)

The dogs helping me move things from the apartment to the house.

Derek changing out all the ceiling lights...he made a great electrician!

More moving with the dogs...they warmed up to it eventually.

Parents visiting.

Our lake at the end of our street. So beautiful!

Scrubbing the fireplace to get it ready to prime and paint.

Dad painted our room and took THREE coats to cover the previous color!

Mom and I painted the inside of all the kitchen cabinets....tedious!

Our roof getting replaced. We had nine people up there at one time working!

The very happy and tired homeowners!!
