Yes, this is just the beginning of making “our house” into “our home”.
We have two months (and counting down fast) and a lot of work to do to make this house “livable” by the time our wedding day arrives.
Our house is located right in town, not far from Dan’s business. He’s even talked about coming “home” to have lunch with me on occasion after we’re married. Doesn’t that sound nice? 😀
Dan has already gotten a lot of work done with the much appreciated help of some friends.
Here, you see a mere glimpse of what the house looks like right now.
The plans include demolition (gutting everything), replacing the electrical, duct work, and windows… insulating, and putting up new drywall. Of course all of you wonderful friends of ours who are “experienced” in this sort of thing understand that there is a lot more to it than I am letting on. 🙂
I don’t have an updated picture yet of this project. But it’s actually almost completed from what I hear. The foundation had to be replaced in this corner of the house. Also a new drainage system installed.
This had to happen before any structural building could take place on these walls.
