The Old and the New

We finished remodeling the kitchen. We're now done with the entire house, except for some little things here and there. Here's some sample shots of before and after rooms.

The OLD kitchen. Notice the little doorway and stackable laundry room to the right which we tore out completely.
The GUTTED kitchen. With a new big open doorway to the living room.
The NEW kitchen!

The OLD bathroom. We tore out the window and gutted the whole thing.

The NEW bathroom.

The OLD living room before we move in.

The NEW living room with bamboo floors and blue paint and new carpet.

The OLD front of the house (with our green grass that died when we went to Texas this summer).

Kitchen Remodel

Instead of the Heywood Family Reunion in So Cal we stayed home this weekend so Brandi could take two final exams and we could put in a new kitchen. I'll post pics as we go. The first pic is just after I ripped out the old 1950s era kitchen: cupboards, counters, sinks, all electrical switches and outlets, lights, a wall, base board, furnace doors, and the ceramic tile floor. The second pic is Brandi slapping on the first coat of paint. I spent all day today patching drywall and texturing. She's painting now while I post this. We have IKEA cabinets to install after the paint and bamboo flooring as well.

Deer Creek

Well, we had a cool family vacation to Texas (I'll post pics from that laters), and then we joined all the bros at ma and pas for some fun this past weekend. We went 16 days between sleeping in our own bed. I'm tired. Here's some pics from a trip to the lake thanks to Dave and Erin. I'm going to post stuff more often and get back into the blog swing again.
James freaking out on the tube with me. We crashed pretty hard the first time and I landed on top of him over the front of the tube. Surprisingly, he got back in for a second run.

Some wakeboardage.
