Betcha didn't see this one coming....

I sure did not! We started with just refinishing the floor... and now we are here. Chaos. I have no regrets about it, especially after we found out what was behind the walls! So we are gutting the upstairs, re-insulating (with something a little more efficient then hamster shavings), re-doing the electrical (so I can have the wires behind the walls, instead along the baseboards), putting in a vapor barrier, dry walling, painting, staining and vanishing the floors.... and I really want to save the baseboards, because they are a big reason of why I fell in love with our house... so I will be adding restoring baseboards to the list. It's a big list. But just wait until it is done!
Time line for this project is a complete guess right now. But we just starting taking down the plaster on Saturday and we are about half done after working on it this evening. Any guesses on when the last baseboard will be put up? I'm going to put an optimistic April 7th as my guess.


  1. I LOVE it! It will be so beautiful when it's all done! Lindsay

  2. We need an update
