We closed on our house yesterday afternoon at 3:30 just as planned! It went really smoothly, and we are very thankful for that. Today we went over to OUR house :-) and started the work! We worked from about 11:30 this morning until 7:30 this evening. Jimmy came and helped us until about 3:00 or so, and he did a great job. Today we got all the popcorn scraped from the ceilings on the main floor as well as all the carpet pulled up. We also took the ugly gold cover off the fireplace and took the huge mirrors off the wall in the dining room. In the pictures you will see that there has been some water damage in some areas, but Ben will fix that. We found out the house has been vacant for about a year and a half....that's why the yard looks so horrible, but we will fix that later! Most of the pictures were taken by Cole because he wanted to be in charge of the camera, but I also took some of them. Cole was a huge help! He wanted to do some of everything. Jacob was happier just playing with the tools in the garage and skateboarding. Annalisa was upset that she wasn't big enough to help! Just click on the Photos tab to go to the photo album of pics. I will try to have more tomorrow!!
