I’m so excited about today’s episode of Notes from Home!!
Today is the 2 month anniversary of the day we closed on our Tennessee home!
We have done SO MUCH in the past 8 weeks, but we still have a lot more to do! Sometimes thinking of all of the projects we have ahead of us is overwhelming, so I thought it would be a good idea to stop and look back at how far we have come! And that’s what we are going to do today.
We are going to compare our first home tour in Episode One to what the house looks like today!
Looking back over the last 8 weeks, we have:
Torn down the wall between the sunken den and dining/living room…
We repositioned the stairs into the sunken den…
We removed the sliding doors connected to the MIL suite to the left of the fireplace and the window to the right….
We gutted the kitchen…
Installed a new header beam…
We installed new drywall on the walls, and repaired & painted the ceiling…
We busted down a wall and moved the corner of the sunken den back…
Then fixed and repaired that corner…
Here is sneak peak of what it looks like now…
(You can see MORE in this week’s episode!)
I’ll be sharing a more detailed post about our new flooring on the blog tomorrow!
WHEW! That is a lot of reno in 8 weeks right there, y’all! And that is not even all of it. Cy has installed new plumbing and electrical in parts of the house. We’ve painted all of the bedrooms and hallway. Cy cleaned up around the property AND re-did the crawl space too! My man has worked NON-STOP for 8 full weeks, and I’m not even including the Kentucky reno. YOWZA!
I don’t know how this man does it all, and keeps a smile on his face while doing it, but I sure do love him!!!
He’s actually on his way back to Kentucky today to work on our reno there. I’m going to try and do a little organizing around the house while he is gone.
Okay, now let’s get to this week’s episode!!! I hope you enjoy it!
Have a blessed weekend!
*We partnered with Twenty and Oak in our flooring installation. They have been a JOY to work with!
