Sooo....we're home owners now!

Tuesday, November 17, 2015
It's been a while since I've had a moment to sit down and post. Why? Well, work is one thing, packing is another and buying a house is something we just did for the first time.

Yes! We are officially home owners!

We're now grown ups, as my sister-in-law likes to remind me. ;)

This past weekend we signed all the papers (they don't prepare you for the amount of papers you have to sign!), we moved, we cleaned and now we are already starting a little demolition.

So, as this process continues (which is will continue for a long while), I will be posting before and after pictures of the many projects.

To is a rough draft of our floorplan as it is now and as we'd like it down the line. Of course, it may change as time goes on and as small problems occur but for now, we're dreamers!


Down the line! (Will most likely change as time goes on...)

For starters? My father-in-law came down and is staying with us for a few weeks to get get some stuff done around the house. Last night we tore out the wall blocking the back door to the kitchen. Man, that opened it up. I couldn't get Dixie Chicks Wide Open Spaces out of my head!

Eventually, we will move the laundry into our master suite (when we get that done) and will completely gut the kitchen. For now, we decided to open it up.

Before: With wall between laundry and kitchen....

After: More room for activities! ;)

This girl was feeling a little left out.

Here is when we found out that the exposed wood beams in the living room went throughout the house. So, of course we decided to start tearing down the ceiling as well to expose those beautiful beams!

On to a lot of demolition, a lot of cleaning, a few headaches and a whole bunch of booze! Can't wait to keep you all updated on what we do next. :)

To my parents and siblings - thank you for moving us out of that NASTY rental and being excited with us for this new adventure. And to both of our families, here's to many weekends remodeling, updating and watching this house slowly change. We wouldn't force  want anyone else to help us with this but you! ;) We love you!!!

Have a WONDERFUL week!

P.S. I will be posting a lot of home photos on Instagram almost daily. If you want to keep up more there, follow me @kelseylindaman :)
