House update – Starting to look like a house, lots of new pictures!

Well the house is actually starting to look like a real house now! Closets are starting to get shelves, rooms are getting painted, the kitchen *almost* looks like a kitchen (less a counter top!). Now is a good time for me to say we wouldn’t be able to do this with out the help of Johnny O, who has been here every single weekend since we bought the place helping out with everything from the wood floors to ripping closet doors.

Now onto the pictures and updates…

Appliances are in (except for the sink / dishwasher which will go in after the counter top). I managed to wire the outlet for the microwave, and install it by myself – patted myself on the back after that.

P.S. All these pics can be viewed here also on flickr via a sideshow ->


Food in our house, finally!


The Bathroom now has lights, and lots of them!


Our hallway closet now has a door, shelves, and food!


The other closet (jacket closet) in the entrance way now has a door, walls, and shelves – Along with some access panels.


In the closet I wired the control unit to the Paloma instant hot water heater, which hopefully will be saving us up to 30% a year in gas bills…


In the entrance hallway I wired in a new lighting fixture, now everyone that enters the house can feel like they are starring in Broadway play.


Living room, cleaned up a bit , now featuring a Christmas tree! Only a few things left to do here is to hang shelves, crown molding and floor molding & Window molding and outlet switches.


Another angle of the living room…


Here is the master bedroom, all painted! Its hard to see the colors in these shots below, but the walls are a tanish color and the back wall is chocolate. We still need to paint the windows and add molding, clean up the base board heating and replace the fan.


Other angle in the master bedroom.


This room is obviously not touched yet, but its our temporary bedroom which eventually will be the office.


This is the almost done laundry room upstairs.


The other side featuring a nice slop sink…


That’s it for now… As you can see everything is moving along pretty well and I am off to relax.
