As you know, we underwent an extensive renovation last winter and now live in our dream house. But to take our home from this:
we had to get a little messy – to put it mildly.
Our intention was to leave no surface untouched, no stone unturned. We were taking down walls, gutting the kitchen and master bath, putting in new windows in the den – the list was seriously extensive. Demo started just three days after we closed on the house (not a minute too soon!), and after two days our little house looked a little like this:
[lovely kitchen, complete with toilets]
[looking into the kitchen from the den]
[the breakfast room ceiling, which was vaulted like a teepee]
Crazy, right? I must admit, even though it was a little overwhelming to think about putting everything back together it was so exciting to imagine what was on the horizon – our home, exactly as we wanted it.
