House Renovation Update!

As I've mentioned before, we are in the process of adding on a addition and renovating a house in our current neighborhood. Though this originally was supposed to be done in August, construction didn't actually begin until August...you know...typical setbacks and permit requirements. But I am happy to say that our addition/renovation is up and running and moving along QUICKLY!!

It's amazing how quickly things are happening. Before we knew it, the hole for the addition was dug, the foundation was set, and framing of the new part of the house began!

This picture was taken from my In-Laws back yard. Yep, that IS how close we will be to them! That might sound crazy to some, but luckily my In-laws are really cool, and I'm looking forward to sending the kids out the back door to Oma's and Papa's when I need some help.

 New upstairs hallway (Left) master bedroom/bathroom (top right), and downstairs, new family room and kitchen (bottom right).

The house is projected to be done sometime end of November/early December, and I'll keep you posted as things move along. It's so crazy to think that in a few short (or long) months, we'll be living in our new house. It's also so weird that Natalie will never remember our current house that we've lived in for 3 1/2 years, and where we spent the first year of Natalie's life, (not to mention, the house where Chris has lived since he was about 5 years old!)

I can't wait to turn our new house into our "home"

  4. That's so awesome that you guys are so close! That will definitely come in handy for babysitting! Haha. We lived down the street from my grandparents' house when I was little and we loved being able to just walk down there whenever! Can't wait to see it!
