Some "after" pictures and a few more "before" pictures

This is what an area in our basement looked 13 days ago (on October 10th)....

This area would eventually become our office area.  The doorway at the end is to a washroom.

Furnace Room

The chest freezer will go here...

Looking from the office towards AJ's room


Hallway to bedrooms/laundry room/washroom

Another view of livingroom

Kitchen - there is now a corner cupboard that we had built.

AJ cutting tile for the den in the basement

The downstairs washroom.  I LOVE it - I think the black and white is just gorgeous.  Jeff picked everything out and did a fantastic job.

You can see the office is set up, but is being used as a workroom right now.

Furnace Room/Off season clothing storage

The Den - the TV for video games/DVD's will be in this room, 
along with bookcases and some seating.

Adoption Court Date

We got the call yesterday that a court date has been set to finalize our adoption of Olivia.
We go to court this coming Friday, July 6th, and Olivia will become a legal, permanent FOREVER member of our family!  Whoo Hoo!!  It's been a looooong road, but SO worth it.

Drywall is done - time to paint!

Yay!!  The drywall is all done. 
Now is the cleaning/painting phase,
as well as plumbing and installation of
flooring, tub, sinks, toilet and all appliances - whew! 

We have only 9 more nights in this house. 
 Praying for a miracle that the new house
will be at least done enough to move right in. 

Our stove doesn't come in until May 24th,
so we might be living on pbj's for a while!!

Here is Olivia wearing my new pink hard hat
that my dad bought for me.


My mom and Luke eating some stirfry that I
brought over for them.  Taking a quick break from

Rene putting primer on the ceiling of my room.

Drywall is hung! 

They started on Thursday morning
and when I stopped by at 3:00pm,
they had already hung all of the drywall
throughout the whole house.



Everything looks so bright and clean and new.
They already have all of the taping and most
of the mudding done, but I'm waiting unil they
are all done and it's ready for paint before
I take more pictures. 
Stay tuned......

May 2nd Construction Photos

We stopped by the house last night
to write on the walls
before the drywallers came.

Opa stopped by to work
on the ductwork a bit.



Loud saw...
