Hi.

Fall Front Porch

Fall Front Porch

This past weekend I came home from the store and planned to clean and decorate the porch for fall. It’s the only part of the house I’m decorating since half of the house is down to the studs and the rooms that aren’t are storing extra furniture. But, I came home to this…LOL

My dad bought a fancy machine that sucked out the nasty old insulation from the attic and pumped it into these giant bags. They are staying on the porch until we get rid of them so they don’t get wet if it rains, so this is what people see when they drive by our house (which is on a pretty busy street). Maybe I’ll turn them into ghosts or giant pumpkins!

Also, here is the last of the old lath, plaster, drywall, and other junk all piled up in the side yard. I’m sure the neighbors love us!

With demo DONE (except for the fireplace) and the old insulation out, we are ready to start putting this old house back together. We are waiting on one final quote for the new duct work and then we will be ready to get the ball rolling. The quotes we have received have come in pretty high which means we will likely be doing the electrical work and drywall ourselves. When I say we, I mean Patrick and my dad. I usually just make sandwiches, help clean up, and work on painting projects. Although I am starting to learn how to hang and mud drywall.

Our house is looking ROUGH, but things will be coming together soon! Our new couch arrived from CB2 and even though it’s in our dining room right now, we are so excited to finish and decorate the living room the way we have always wanted. We also ordered our new king bed for “master bedroom”. It’s not a true master which is often an area of compromise in old houses, but we hope to make it really nice and will be able to stop playing musical bedrooms. Here is a sneak peek at the things we have picked out for the living room!

We have lots of exciting things to come! Stay tuned for lights and walls!
