We've Been Busy....

Our bathroom remodels are pretty much complete.  Just a few final finishing touches and they will be done.  But, we thought they were done enough to show off some before and after pics.  Adam and friend Rob did the tear out, tiling, and plumbing.  We used Classic Designs out of Jewell for our cabinets and counter tops.  I'm very happy with the way everything has turned out.  Now, what should the next project be....

Master Bath

The longest part of the year...

I always feel like January and February are the longest months of the year every year.  It's cold and miserable outside and you are just coming down off the hustle and bustle of the holidays. So, this year we decided to have lots of play dates and get together with friends to make it through January.  And, it worked; January flew by!  February we've spent remodeling 2 bathrooms (master bath, and boys' bath).  Luckily, we have 4 bathrooms in our house, so we could still have 2 working bathrooms through this project.  We are nearing the end and will post some before and after pictures when we are finished.  Now we are just looking forward to March, which means my birthday and spring...just a few more weeks!!
