A POST FOR THE CURIOUS

This is the living room BEFORE we bought the house


This is what it looks like NOW:

(note: the walls look washed out in my photos,
but they're a light sage green)

Dane's awesome new guitar is going to hang
next to that window (above)

You may recall we spent the summer in transition--
demolishing the kitchen, eating food in the back yard,
doing dishes in the bathtub, living with boxes covering the floor
to the ceiling in the living room... When we finally furnished
this space in September (after three long months)
it felt like a place where we could kick up our feet, read a good book,
and even do a cartwheel (just ask Aubrey).

Here's the view into the living room, which we never
would have had if we hadn't removed a chimney,
taken out a wall, and created a new bar and counter:

I wouldn't say it's quite done, but it sure feels like a great start.

Will post pictures of the new kitchen and the dining room
after I, um, clean it up a little.

It appears, someone is allowing your kids, I mean, allowing Jarry, Jimmy and Bob to hijack ythis blog.

The ol' JJ&B Caper. Better keep an eye out for those scoundrels.
