Many Hands Make Light Work

To Do:
finish the plumbing
remove radiators 
tile part of the kitchen
construct and hang kitchen cabinets
finish wallpaper removal
patch walls
tile the bathroom
install the new sink and faucet

Spring break is long past now, but it was more productive than we could have hoped.  Thanks in large part to all of the wonderful help we had over the course of the week, the house is starting to look much more like home. 

The Kitchen

The metal cabinet that came with the house certainly had personality, but it will be finding a home in our basement laundry room as a utility sink and storage. But after some serious cabinet construction time, the top cabinets are now on the wall.

Now that the uppers are hung, our goal is to get the base cabinets set in place next weekend, so we can order countertops.  I can't wait to get some paint on the walls, either.

Main Floor Bath
On first inspection this bathroom looked tolerable, but the closer we looked the more changes we realized were necessary.  The pinkish floor tiles needed to go, as well as the uneven bead board, and terrible sink/cabinet combo.  Now the bathroom looks clean, with a new tile floor and sink.  

Upstairs Bath
The room that underwent the greatest change was one we had not even intended to touch over break.  The upstairs bathroom was in rough shape.  It isn't done yet, but it has real walls and the floors are ready to tile. 

This is only a glimpse into all we accomplished over break, but none of this would have been possible without all of our fantastic help.
