House Reboot Day 1

FINALLY!  We closed on the house yesterday at one and rallied the troops over to the new house!  The kids were seriously excited and can't wait for their rooms to get painted!  The goal for the day was just to get the wallpaper down in the office area and to get as far as we could on the main level only (if we started spreading ourselves all over the house it would be a problem.  So here is our progress.  Not bad for 8 hours work.  Of course mom and dad were here helping and taking care of the boys and Keri and Eliyah came by after their dinner and stayed until after midnight getting the touches put together.

Aint that a beautiful sign???

 Here is the office before we started.  The wallpaper is a blue plaid pattern all the way around.  Just remember - friends don't let friends put up wallpaper.

And after the first day of work!

The living room before - main concern was the maroon trim going around the top of the wall YUCK.

When I left the house last night this is what it looked like!  It's finally looking like a real residence

Last but not least: Chad ripped up the carpet from the steps going up to the bedrooms there is nice wood that just needs a finish on it under the carpet.  Then it was a process of yanking out hundreds of carpet staples.  Josh helped :) Can't argue with the results.

Today the projects include getting rid of ALL of the carpet in the entire house.  Removing the wallpaper border in the kitchen and painting painting painting and more painting.  What a great weekend this is going to be!
