beginning of day 3...

A lot of demolition in the last two days. Carpet is completely ripped up and out of there. Ceilings were painted, only to find out that the spotty stuff (you know, the annoying stuff any home built before 2000 had on the ceiling) needed to be scraped off. Unfortunately, that put a slight time delay on the rest of the place being painted. It's in the process of being scraped right now.... if it isn't already done. The bathroom has been completely gutted minus the shower and it is being re-done as I type. We went to Lowes and got a new medicine cabinet/ mirror to keep tooth brushes and such in and I got a new light fixture to go above it. We got all the wood to start on the deck and daddy has a whole crew down here helping him now. The kitchen cabinets are ready for pick up at Lowes, but dad is waiting for the carpet to be installed and the new kitchen floor before those go up. The carpet is all here and they are coming to install in tomorrow or Tuesday. The cabinets are going to look awesome. Remember what it looked like all on day one - it's already come a long way. Scroll down and check out the updated pictures. The cabinet design from Lowes is included. I hope you are enjoying the updates as much as I am. We are so excited to get all moved in and even more excited for when Riley is here!!!
