Be grossed out if you must, but that floor is brand spankin' new! The Student spent quite a bit of time, energy and at least 5 trips to Lowes to get it in, and we're all very appreciative. Whoever thought carpet in a bathroom was a good idea is cuckoo. Now imagine it with freshly painted walls and a black vanity cabinet, hopefully it will look exactly as you imagined before the end of the year.
A quick snap of the kitchen before we moved in. And yes, that is carpet in the kitchen too! Ick! But the newly purchased Scraped Hickory Laminate is in the garage waiting for Thanksgiving weekend to make it's appearance. At some point we expect to paint the cabinets and replace the counter too. We're very grateful for the bigger kitchen right now though.
Backyard, complete with 2 sheds full of old tools, knobs, jars, paint etc. We plan to:
1) Scrap some of the old metal for a little bit of cash
2) Sell some of the extra tools and garage-saleable items
3) Use the free yard tools! And plumbing supplies and old paintbrushes and camping chair and and and and... We're thankful we don't have to buy a lot of stuff to take care of the yard.
The Monkey is playing next to a railroad hitch dug into the ground. We're not exactly sure why it's there but they must have had a use for it. We're not sure both sheds are going to stay long term, and we know some of the extra sidewalks need to come out but the boys are having fun playing out there everyday. (Oh and we think that's a peach tree in the picture, we hoping for peaches and pecans next year!)
We like the new house, despite the ugly carpet, it's finally feeling like home now!
