Project anyone?


So I am really good at getting myself into projects. I thought since I'm out of school for the summer I would really get going on the house. So we have been trying to get ready for the carpet. This includes getting a room ready for the kids. Above are pictures of the room I cleared out. It's a really nice room with cute square windows on two of the walls.

So I cleared all of this out (I know it looks like we are moving....it feels even worse than it looks!!) and got the room ready. Well as I started to take the panelling off the wall, low and behold, water damage! So what was going to be a texture and paint job is yet another home improvement project!

As we peeled away at the wall we also discovered there is no insulation in the exterior walls, (studs and a few layers of wood panel should keep these kids warm, right?) and the studs are 32 inches apart in stead of 16 inches. The carpet is coming in 9 days and I still have to get the basement ready! What do you think? Does anyone have a magic wand handy I could borrow?

You should call Oprah and have her crew come out. How cool would that be? Kristy has told my all the projects you have accomplished. I bow down to you.

Your house is turning out so cute! I absolutely love the brick and ceiling!! I am also sorry about an unfortunate project. At least you will know it will be done right.
