One of the rooms that changed the most was our living room:
We had tons of friends and family helping out constantly to help us paint and get everything ready for move-in!
Jeremy's baby in this house was definitely the fireplace. We had a vision of a beautiful stone fireplace and concrete hearth, and this is what the house came with:
So for two months Jeremy demolished the old fireplace...
Framed out a symmetrical one (who makes a fireplace weirdly unsymmetrical?!)...
Carved a new mantle out of cedar...
Poured a concrete base for a hearth...
Complete with our names in the concrete :)
And layered moisture barrier, metal lathe, mud, stone, and grout...
Which was the messiest project I've EVER seen!
And finally, voila!
We have some dreams for the kitchen, but so most we've done so far is paint and replace this stove that was older than me and burned EVERYTHING:
With this one:
My yoga room was originally the only room in the house with carpet (and it was nasty!). My FANTASTIC brother-in-law and father-in-law laid gorgeous wood flooring for me:
And Jeremy built me shelves for all my teaching equipment. I love having this little space!
Still to come (Eventually) - master bathroom renovations are on hold for quite a while, but the baby room will be ready in a couple of months. It's currently our office/music room and a disaster :)
Thanks for peeking in!
