almost done!




guys!!!!
We have floors!! 
We have all the rooms except the master completed!! 
We gotta lay the master closet and bedroom. 
After that it's replace the baseboards throughout the whole house 


Our kitchen counters arrive next week... waaaahooooo
 I can't explain how insane it is to have to go to the BATHROOM to get the dog water. 
Our bathroom has been our kitchen catcher. 
I do dishes in there, I rinse out bottles, fill water jugs (for the dogs).. 
the only thing we aren't using the bathroom for is... well bathroom stuff.
Since we have 3.. one is ONLY being used for the kitchen overflow. 


I think the floors are gorgeous!
 I of course already miss my crazy rugs and have put one in the boys room (above) and the playroom. I actually REALLY miss my kitchen rug and I might replace that one as well. It was a great crumb catcher & I love the extra design element.


That's all I got folk's. We are chugging through the mess and trying to make time to create summer memories. We did find time to hit the beach this weekend. With three very independent kids & two adults - it wasn't relaxing but the kids had a GREAT time! Next week we will tackle the zoo (weather pending) & possibly a splash pad day.

full remodel


One day I decided that we needed new floors. The carpets were just grrrroooossss. I literally have it in my cleaning schedule to shampoo carpets on Thursday's. I got tired of the brush off so I got the ball rolling and mad did it roll..


We ripped out all of the carpets in our 4 bedrooms house, the living room & the kitchen tile floor!! Ourselves. We decided to do the demo and install ourselves and save that money; which went back into the house. Other then a couple people helping - my husband has done it on his own. 



We realized that the kitchen cabinets were sitting on flooring .. so we removed the counters, the cabinets and placed the cabinets back. We currently do NOT have a counter top, sink or really a functioning kitchen. It has been glorious chaos. 
***********


We currently have 70% of the house refloored.. the living room got re-painted too 




the inspector signed off on our counter today & it will be installed in TWO weeks - along w the new sink and faucet. We also are adding a new backsplash. I am so delirious with excitement! I got everything that I wanted and I'm so anxious to get it all up and in place. 




We decided at the last moment to not replace the bathroom flooring, which was the same as the kitchen tile, until we do the bathroom reno's.

Everyone has done really good! The kids have really adapted and love the chaos. They have no issues with toys everywhere. They have no issues eating out 4 nights out of 7. They have had no problem with reorganizing or rearranging their rooms. These little kiddo's are troopers!!

I will NOT miss doing dishes out of the bathtub ANY time soon. I had to close off the front bathroom b/c eww gross. So only dishes are allowed. The dishwasher is up and running as well - so that has helped keep things sanitized.


So that's what's been going on since I wrote last. We've got things everywhere and anywhere. My house is going to be fabulous once we are done. I know my husband didn't love spending all that money but I sure do appreciate it! I'm sure he'll also be happy when all of this is over so he can relax and rest when he gets home.
