Here We Go!
Hello world! I have started this blog to capture the progress we make on our enormous home renovation project! We take possession of the house on Monday August 10th, at which time we hope to begin the demo! My husband Ben and I have spend months preparing for this day....pricing out flooring, bathroom fixtures and the rest. Actually, Ben has spent so much time at Home Depot that the staff are starting to recognize him! We are starting with a second floor addition which will add a bedroom and bigger bathroom upstairs (nice). We are waiting on the building permit so keep your fingers crossed! After the addition is up (with the help of a contractor) we are going to be putting on a new roof and siding. The goal is to have this, plus a privacy fence up around the property before the snow falls! I will attach some pictures soon of the "before"! We have a 6 month deadline for the entire project, so wish us some luck, and please leave comments on my posts if you have any handy reno advice....we are going to need all the help we can get!
