Don't you just love that show, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Everytime I watch it, it leaves tears in my eyes. I am always in awe of what the team can complete in 7 days, and it warms my heart to see some very derserving people recieve such a wonderful gift after many years of trial and hardship.Well, we did a little home makeover ourselves and it left tears in my eyes as well. Not the same kind as the show gives me, but more of the "ARE WE EVER GOING TO BE FINISHED?!" kind. Don't let me fool you.. it hasn't been that bad.. It has actually been kind of fun. You know.. the whole "getting married and starting a family together" butterflies are great. I also love being able to take a house that is like a blank canvas and create our dream home (well, sort of).We are on a budget. Thankfully, Jordan's parents have had their share of home renovation and are willing to help us out. We are doing every bit of this ourselves. Pray for us!!
Just to give everyone a little sneak peek into what were doing..I'll post some BEFORE pictures for you!
Those are a few of the BEFORE pictures. We are going to do the master bedroom, bathroom and living room first. Then after we move in, we will work our way throughout the house.
I'll leave you with a picture that will scare you. I know it will scare you only because it scares me.
Yep, what you see is destruction. But Jordan promises me that it will one day be our bedroom leading into our walk in closet. And yes, there is a toilet in my closet. I am told that it will be removed shortly. :)
