Happy Friday! I wanted to share some photos from our home renovation. As you may recall, we purchased a house in August 2018. Great bones, and exactly the location I wanted, but it needed some updating.
It was wet -- like pools of water. Part of the floor was dirt. The stairs were falling down. There was huge pipe sticking up out of the ground. The floor was uneven. And then we discovered...the foundation was crumbling. So, we had to put in a new foundation wall. The crew built the framing for it...
...two things happened: (1) The main water line to the house burst due to the cold. It was originally put in in 1931, so at least it happened (a) when someone was in the house and (b) before the basement was finished. When Spring comes and the ground thaws, we'll have the front lawn and the sidewalk dug up to put in a new water line.
And (2) the crew began demo on the rest of the house.
Today -- mid-February -- the house is down to the studs. The floors are mostly gone. You can see from the first floor into the third floor attic and it just looks like a big pile of sticks.
This is a scary and exciting adventure. My first house. My first renovation. I guess I'm a "go big or go home" kind of gal!
Thanks for stopping by!
