I'm not sure if I've mentioned before that Jamie and I are in the midst of renovating our 41 year old home. We bought our house 3 years ago in May. The move in date was actually 3 years ago today!! How amazing is that?? We bought during the huge housing boom and ended up paying a ton for our home that I'm sure we'll spend the rest of our lives paying off... But that's okay. We've done a lot to the house already! A few major things we've done: added new insulation and siding/stonework to the front of the house, high efficiency furnace, new hot water tank, new windows and exterior doors. Now the list of things we still want to do: remodel the kitchen, expand the master bath, change the flooring, put in a new deck, update the backyard, fix up the laundry room. This year our big goal is to remodel the kitchen. We need to knock down a supporting wall so it's definitely going to take us a while. We have tile, a double wall oven, an induction cooktop and a sink sitting in our living room... Since we haven't really gotten going on the kitchen, we decided to start on the laundry room! It's actually quite a huge room but really dated. We spent this weekend tearing out all the gross wood paneling and taking apart the shelf that the previous owner built. Boy they were nail happy. It's incredible...incredibly frustrating!!! Here's a couple photos for your enjoyment!
