The Little White House: Before

As requested, here are pics of our house! This is a great improvement over the first couple of times that we looked at it -- it was FULL of fifty years worth of stuff from the previous owners. Now it is empty but still very dated. We have lots of plans and are looking forward to fixing it up to just how we like it!

I took these yesterday and since then My Man and his brother have done a bit of demolition in the kitchen already.

The kitchen -- looks like wallpaper, right? We discovered today that it is floral contact paper on top of contact paper that looked like bricks. Nice, huh?

Living room

The biggest bedroom
The lovely bathroom. Yet another window in the shower! We cannot escape them, it seems.
My Man realized yesterday that those soap dish/toothbrush holders actually spin around into the wall. Pretty nifty, right? Hahaha
One of the smaller bedrooms. This one will be the girls' room.

The third bedroom. Our plan is to make it an office/playroom, as long as the girls can share nicely. :)
My Man doing the very first project -- changing the locks!
The laundry room

And that's our house! There is much to do: wallpaper scraping, painting, new flooring to put down, new carpet to have installed, toilet and vanity to replace, etc. I'm excited to see the finished product.
