Phew! I don't think I knew what we were getting into when we decided to fix up our house! Luckily, the basement of our home was finished so we have been able to live down there until we painted and carpeted the upstairs bedrooms. However, the main level is still totally torn up! We have installed some of the laminate flooring in the front room and are just waiting for everything to arrive to finish up the kitchen and living room.
Our original goal was to have everything done by Christmas....at this point, we are just excited to have it done eventually! Haha! The kids are going a little stir crazy spending most of their days in the basement, but we will survive!
