Since I am more motivated now to get my pictures saved I am going to go ahead and give you a sneak peek of all the goings on at the Johnson's house these days. (Still not living there, but it is our house!) As I mentioned in the previous post, a lot of the demolition was done by Ken and ME. Most of the construction has been done by my dad who came up from Medford 4 times in a 7 week period. What a great dad I have!
The wall with the sink:
|Plumber doing his thing|
Wall between kitchen and dining room:
|Before (doorway had a swinging door)|
|My dad putting in the new beam|
The wall with a covered chimney, old pantry, and stairs leading to the basement.
|Demolition (This was actually our first demo project and I was actually helping, I just stopped to take a picture.)|
|My mom helping remove the plaster from the chimney.|
This one takes a little more explanation. Our fixing up the house is actually a two phase project. We are doing the kitchen and added in a laundry closet, but we will eventually be putting an addition onto the house. The location of our laundry closet...in the middle of Scarlet's bedroom...is in preparation for our future addition.
|Before (blue tape outlining where to build the closet)|
|Insulation for the laundry closet. Notice the electric and plumbing.|
|Not the final plans but I hope it helps explain what I was trying to describe.|
Odds and Ends
|Right tub handle "before" Left tub handle "After"|
|Before (Bathroom floor, which won't be replaced yet.)|
Alright, I think I am ready to be done with this post for now. Between working at the house all day almost every day and then going on "vacation" where I hardly got any sleep because Scarlet didn't sleep well I am completely exhausted. A couple of cute pics of the little miss and that is it for me. Can't wait to show you the after pictures in a few more weeks!!
