The bendy house is torn to smithereens!!

Actually, it's just that the renovations are in full swing, but OMD it's insane around here!!!

We've ripped up our old wood floors:



under which we've discovered the most delightful peel-n-stick laminate tiles...(happily our flooring contractor says we can leave it in...but we do need a new layer of subfloor on top to even things out a bit )



We are painting new doors for our walk-in pantry:

I've been practicing my circus act whilst painting and re-sealing the skylights...



General chaos abounds right now, it's just nuts...



To top it all off, the little backhoe showed up yesterday to start digging up our foundation (our basement is a tad, er "damp"...by which I mean "flooded every time it rains")

I never knew how much dirt could be hauled out of a two-foot wide trench!





My contractor was kind enough to carefully remove and set aside the few little flowers I'd planted at the side of the house, so I potted them up...

YIKES! chaos indeed! But just think of how nice it will be once all finished!
Gorgeous house by the way, is it an old schoolhouse? I love the high ceilings, skylights, and the colour scheme!
What do the furkids think of it all??

Yep, it's a 100-year-old schoolhouse!

Thanks for the compliment on the colour scheme! It was a HUGE change from what we got when we moved in...which was mostly flowery wallpaper and lavender paint with dark purple trim on all the moldings!!!

The furkids are pretty used to this kinda nonsense, we've been renovating for the past 5 years This is the "last" big push to the finish, when we finally called in the pros to get the rest done

I was actually going to ask if it was at one time a little church or something. Very cool.

I hope it's not too dusty in there.

You brave, brave women, going through that kind of upheaval....last year we had our bedroom taped and plastered and I don't have the courage to get the rest of the upstairs done...the mess was a bloody nightmare

On the upside, the girls will have plenty to sniff

OMG I totally hear you about the drywalling...we've done quite a bit and it's a total DISASTER!!! Not for the faint of heart for sure (hopefully never again!)

Our bedroom is 14' x 14', it took the dude 1 whole week to do it, no drywalling, just the taping and plastering...the rest of the upstairs that needs doing is an open area about the same size and the staircase, I can't bring myself to say go ahead, no, no, no
