And so it begins

Back in May we bought a house. And now there is a list and the list goes on and on. As far as lists go, it's a good one — one that we won't mind working on. Just as long as we have a kitchen — which we don't have at the moment.

1) demo of our kitchen. Layers and layers of flooring, crazy paneling and flowery wallpaper  2) salvaged red pine from the kitchen  3) buck-o-tools  4) kitchen demo  5) wallpaper, paneling and a view into the peachy/orange dining room with a vintage Lightolire sputnik chandelier  6) living room the color of the sun  7) very green 2nd floor hallway with big beautiful windows  8) stairway and first floor hallway with wall-to-wall 1970s carpeting  9/10) 2nd floor bathroom/tub  11/12) third floor that reminds us of a treehouse  13) third floor bathroom

Here it is — our house of many bright colors, huge beautiful windows and a jungle of a garden. Right after closing we ripped out part of the kitchen and removed all of the rugs and began planning. Almost 3 months later, the walls are fixed and painted white, the floors refinished, the kitchen is empty except for the appliances sitting in the middle of the room, the kitchen cabinets are assembled waiting in the dining room to be installed, the mudroom is just about finished, we have a clean working bathroom and we are slowly unpacking.

We are thinking of painting our sunroom floors like this and eventually opening the ceiling and painting it like this room. Looking at this kitchen island or this one and these lights. This hanging chair would be perfect for our backyard as would this outdoor shower and this slack line.
