Our House In Progress

We are finally uploading photos of our house to the blog.  For anyone who doesn't know, we've been renovating this house since we bought it in February.  We still live in a cabin right now, but we'll be in the house by May (hooray!).  Even though we have a ways to go, we've gotten a lot done and we wanted to show some pics of our progress.

You can't tell from this pic, but our backyard is pretty big and it backs up to a farm.  The sun also sets behind our house, and we look forward to many nights out on the deck enjoying the sunset over the farm

The blue tape you see is where windows will eventually be.  (We are enclosing the garage.)

This is the before picture of our living room.  Nice blinds, I know.

Same room, in progress!  New blinds, white trim, green walls, and no carpet.  We are putting in hardwoods in here.

Old kitchen area (the washer and dryer will go behind those closet doors)

Kitchen area in progress.  The hardwood floors will continue in here (this is just opposite the fireplace).  We are getting new kitchen cabinets and countertops, all new appliances, and new closet doors to the washer and dryer area (they will be white).  Ryan knocked out the sophet and we will have 3 pendant lights hanging down over a bar area (obviously different than the light bulbs hanging there now).  Also, we switched the placement of the sink and stove, so the sink will now face out into the living room.

This used to just be a plain wall with a door to the garage on the right side.  We put in these french doors that will open up into our new family room.

Guest Room Before

Guest Room now.  This room is totally done except for putting in new baseboards.  We got ride of the brown closet doors that are opposite the window and are painting new ones white.

Master Bedroom before.

Master Bedroom in progress.  New blinds, white trim, 1st coat of paint up, and we will put in new white baseboards.  This carpet (along with the rest of the carpet in the house) is brand new too.  

Ryan painting one of our new doors.

Mom getting off the oh so lovely border in the guest bathroom.

Dad pressure washing the whole house, including the deck.  It's amazing the difference!

We've had a lot of other people help us along the way too, so thanks to everyone who's already helped out!  We are so grateful for all the help!  
Also, once we get Jackson's room all finished, we will put up a pic.  At this point, we are still deciding on what paint color.
