Progress!

Well, we closed on our house Friday.
We sure were hoping for 80 degree weather...but instead, it was FREEZING.

That didn't stop Joel! Saturday he spent the day trimming our trees (I mean, shrubs).

Then, yesterday, when the weather man said, "66 degrees" it thunderstormed and hailed and was really cold. But we still managed to do a few things over there:

Joel knocked out the cupboards over the bar,

and over what will be our fridge...

took out some flooring...

And I did my part by pulling wallpaper.

The thunderstorm was lovely, and even better? We had friends stop in to see the progress!!! We look forward to many more fun times in this house (especially once we get the heat on!).

Oh this brings back glorious memories! Is that the insane lino that resists removal? Good luck!

Mitch drove us by Friday night. What a great house! You guys work amazingly fast. I can't believe how much you got done in a little bit of time.

I told Joel yesterday that it looks way better already. So exciting!!
