yes, totally! and it looks like work is being done and that is so exciting! progress is a beautiful thing. i love this stage cause it means stuff is happening. every little change is exciting and new. makes me want to do it again!
Wow. and again I say wow. Oh honey, just keep thinking happy thoughts. It WILL look pretty, it will look pretty, it will...
wow, I had not realized that you were doing a renovation this big! You are brave! I'm sure it will be great.
Wow, that is a lot of demo. It will be worth it in the end. Just keep planning and plugging along, it will be great before you know it!
@ Teresa~You're right -- I'm happy that things are finally happening. It just looks so BAD!!
@ My Beautiful Life~ Yes. Deep breaths + "It will be pretty. It will be pretty. It wi--" thanks. ; )
@ Fishly~ It's not *that* big of a renovation. We did a LOT more in our previous house. However, I need to remember that all changes look really bad before the improvement.
@ elizabeth~It looks so bad, I'm wondering what the poor neighbors are thinking. LOL
those neighbors are/should be stoked that a nice family is bringin up the value in their neighborhood!
OMG, right now it IS ugly! But...the bigger the mess, the larger the reward :)
@ Teresa~Thanks. Spoken by someone who sees the glass as half-full as opposed to half-empty. ;)
@ Carrie~I know, that's what I keep telling myself. It's sort of like Extreme Makeover. sorta
You finally got started! So exciting! It is going to look fab. This is the hard part.
@ Heather~I keep reminding myself that I should 'rejoice' that we have actually made progress, as ugly as it is.
I can't wait to see what it's going to look like!
