The property at the new house is pretty much to die for. It was the number one selling feature for us. The interior of the house? Not so much. It has great bones, solidly constructed, and lots of potential. But it's current cosmetic state is pretty nasty. Hubby and I spent all of last Monday and Tuesday tearing out every single square inch of seriously stinky carpeting. And I've been going there to paint for a few hours each evening after hubby gets home from work. To be perfectly honest it really doesn't look like we've accomplished much at all, which is a little discouraging right now, but it certainly smells better in there now, which is a pretty major feat. So this is the (slightly blurry iphone-pic) tour of the before state of the house...
2nd Floor (in much better condition than the 1st floor. After taking out the carpeting the other day, there's zero yuckiness up there anymore, and needs pretty minimal cosmetic stuff):
The Kid's Bedroom:
(that nook in the corner is the perfect spot for a sweet loft bed)
The Baby's Room:
More pics coming soon of the
mess progress we've made so far.
