Since Kev works full time, and I work part time, the majority of the small projects that needed to be done fell to me. I asked a lot of questions and called my poor husband at work multiple times, but I got it done! Usually he does all the "heavy lifting" so to speak with power tools and such, but I got familiar with the chop saw and nail gun during this venture.
I'll spare you all the details, but I must share some of the photos from the listing. Here's a post from a while ago about the open shelving with a few pictures of what the kitchen looked like when we moved in.
We did a lot work on this little house, and made a lot of memories over 8 years...and when it was all done, it looked like a place I would like to live. Eli said he wanted to move into the house because it was clean, finished and "so big" (compared to our current 5,000 square feet?!). I guess that's what happens when your kids live in the middle of a messy renovation their whole lives. I understood what he meant though. I'm looking forward to being finished with the major aspects of remodeling...though I love me a good fixer-upper!
