I have seriously been the worst blogger, clearly! This month has been insanity. This month we have done 2 Moms On The Go segments on the news (Nov is their busiest month) so I had to be up twice a week at 4am!e Sucks the small energy I have right out of me. On top of that we closed on the house and have been renovating evr since. Jordan has literally been working or at the house working since we got the keys, which means I am have been trying to handle all the packing and keeping up with the boys daily antics. Needless to say I CANNOT wait to get in the house. I want to get everything in their place and then MAYBE relax! haha! I am also excited because today was the last day of 2 weekly segments and we go back to just one! Whew! By the new year hopefully we will have things a TAD calmer!
I wanted to show you guys a sneak at the house's before pictures! You will also get a good look at the before and after of our home because we will be showcased on HGTV House Hunters!:) They come in a few weeks to do our last "at home" session, which means that I need to make sure we get things looking good STAT!!
Here is a sneak peek
This is our second house and I knew exactly what I wanted this time around. I didn't want anything new. I wanted something unique and vintage. Something with LOADS of history that we can make our own.
I am obsessed because it is beyond perfect, well that is a lie.
It is not perfect as is, but it has the potential to be my dream home once we finish some things!
The details and craftsmen ship of the home are amazing.
We truly have a VERY unique home and that is what I wanted!
This room was by far the biggest selling point.
The great room. It is insane.
Wide plank hardwoods. Leaded glass windows. Exposed wood beams.
Literally my dream.
It also has this really cool balcony
(we had to put another rod iron gate up bc it freaked me out!)
You cannot see it from here but behind there is the foyer with a spiral staircase.
I need to get more pics of it!
Here is the kitchen....boooooring. It is huge though.
That is one end of it.
Here is the other, there are two "eat in" areas,
One side will be for eating and the other will be the boys activity and craft area.
This area will be eating. I want to have a bench built along the wall with cute padding/pillows.
The bathrooms are a train wreck. Literally.
This beauty is in the boy's room.
We recently gutted the entire thing and will make it into a cute updated bath for them.
This bathroom is the main bath
Sweet green carpet and yellow tub, right??
I have more pics I need to take but that is just a small update.
We have so much work to do. We have already exhausted our renovation budget for this year.
We had mold removal, electrical and plumbing that was a must do.
We have floors that are being switched out and all the appliances.
It is shocking how quickly money goes during a renovation.
So there you have it, a tiny peek at the house!
