Renovation Begins!

Have owned the house for 7 days now, and the second floor is being torn to bits.  I love it! This project would take 100 times longer without my friends helping.  

See the album to the right for some "before" pics.

 The bathroom with old mistmatched beige/brown tile and medicine cabinet removed. Popping tile off the wall didn't take that long, seeing as they had just been glued onto the previous wall treatment.  New smaller toilet, and sink/vanity  plus beadboard paneling are being planned.  Also awful peel and stick tile covering original tile will get ripped up.  Hopefully the tile is in ok shape!

Upper kitchen cabinets gone, base cabinets will follow soon.  Have to fix all the windows and slowly replace the ropes with chains.  Mostly removing tons of old paint and re-glazing a couple windows. 

Pantry shelves gone, after a good ole fashioned smashing by bff Kyle.  Wall to the left is going to be taken down to create a bigger kitchen.  Beautiful (Ha!) vinyl flooring to be destroyed as well!

Sun porch with carpet and pad removed by my mother.  Floors will need to be refinished throughout, but will be awesome when they are done.
