Two Blondes and a Stan: Demolition Time

We began our new adventure…more like massive undertaking…hours after signing our names and initialing here (no less than fifty times).

The tasks before us were no surprise.  We had the inspection…we read the report…we could see all the problems with our own eyes, yet we were drawn to this place and its charm.

The living room required the least amount of work.  The fireplace renovation has been the main project.  We had a bit of a leak…that required us to tear out all the woodwork and mantel.

Since this photo, the bricks have been painted and glazed, a new mantel has been built and installed, and the TV has been mounted above the mantel.  There are still a few more finishing touches left to do…hopefully, soon.

The master bedroom and bath are the largest of the projects that we face. There were two separate master baths…a his and a hers, both with large walk-in closets.  We decided to create one large master bath and a dressing room.  For now, the master bath is studs and bare floors because I have no inspiration for the design direction!

Removing the mirror surround...carefully!

God has blessed me with a wonderful little family.  We took a leap of faith, accepted the challenge, and demolished.  Now, it is time to use the talents that we have been given to restore this house, to use our money wisely in its restoration, and to share with y’all the ups and downs and everything in between.
