Under Construction

I know things have been quiet on here this week….but that’s because things have been anything but quiet here in the house 🙂  Bear with us for the next week as we finish up and then things should be back to normal after that.  Curious about what we’ve been up to? 🙂  Take a look at the picture below:

Many areas of our house are in various levels of disarray right now as we tackle a variety of projects all at once.  We are painting, putting up trim, removing paneling, patching walls (where the paneling used to be), taking up flooring, changing out lights….

Why?  Because we have carpet coming next week!!  Woohoo!!  I am SO excited about it.  It is going to be so wonderful to climb out of bed and sink my feet into soft carpet!  Can you guess how getting carpet resulted in two weeks of non-stop work in preparation for it?  It started with a simple decision to put trim in the rooms that don’t have any yet.  Then we decided to touch up and redo some of the painting in the rooms.  We were originally going to do it this summer but decided it would be better to get it done now before the carpet goes in.  That of course led to painting around the new windows since we hadn’t gotten to that yet.  Then I realized that if I wait until summer to take down the last of our paneling, I’m going to be patching those walls and sanding over my new carpets…so, that got added to the list.  Then we found lights on craigslist to replace the broken light in the hallway.   Yeah….

So, we are tackling alot of our summer projects now and I’m exhausted and sore from the work, but it’s going to look SO nice when we are done!!  Get ready to see lots of pictures towards the end of next week!! 🙂
