Tour of the house renovations

If you've already stumbled on these pictures on my .mac account, then you've already seen them.  For those of you who haven't, let's take a little tour:

This is the outside of our house.  Cute, huh?  This picture looks a little weird, but it's really quite a normal looking house.

This is the kitchen before we moved in.  The paneling was cracked and damaged and sticky and oogy.  So we tore it down.  (Thanks, eldridgeprime).  Note the disgusting floor and the closed off space above the cabinets.  Those are both gone.  New floor, and the paneling has been removed above the cabinets revealing that there is a wide open space up there.

This, obviously, is after the paneling was torn down (but before we replaced the floor).  Note the guacamole-green peeling disgusting paint.  Also note the gashes in the plaster.  No wonder they covered it all up!

Same wall with wallpaper.  Seth was still putting it up, and it was still wet (so it actually looks much better now), but that'll give you an idea. 

Here's the opposite wall.  It's coming along, but we do have a ways to go (like putting up molding.  Hopefully eldridgeprime is still willing to be hired for that.  Not to fear...it'll be a while before we can get molding up.)


And now.... on to the basement:

This is the TV room before we moved in.  The furniture, thankfully, is not ours and never was.  It's not there anymore.  Whew!  Note the black and red checkered tile.  Also the faux brick paneling on the walls.  EW.  We'll get to the walls someday but they're a project for some other day.  The curtains are still there too, but I'm working on that.

Hooray for new tile!!!

This is our ridiculous bathroom in the basement.  That's going to take a lot of time to work on, but we're starting with the floor.  The shower is even funnier, but I'm not posting that just yet.

This is the hallway between the bathroom and the TV room.  You can see that progress has been made.  Most of the remaining tiles are tiles that I need Seth to cut.

That's the progress so far.  More to come (I hope)!
