we closed on our house one year ago on September 9th. that night we tore down the first wall.
I had every intention of doing a post on the year anniversary of our closing, but ya know, stuff happens... so better late than never! here are some before and afters of our year renovating. obviously there's a little more to be done - see that radiator in the middle of our kitchen? we need to finish tiling/painting/installing trim. see those wires hanging from our living room ceiling? yea, that will be a ceiling fan...eventually. oh, and we are about to insulate our attic, which means our third floor bedroom is a dumping ground right now. the entire first floor? i didn't even include photos because it is just furniture storage. we're planning to gut it sometime this winter.
but hey - who said life needed to be perfect? process is a huge part of being a maker, and any more that's all i can ask of life - process, progress, need for more process. so cheers to a year!
