Demo and Reno

This post was originally written on December 26, 2007:

Ripping down wall paper, and destroying the countertop. We were lucky that the wallpaper came off really easily. It was actually pretty fun!

Here's Jarrod prying off the old laminate countertop:

Things are really moving at the house! We've owned it less than a week, and we already have all of the granite and tile finished.

(this will look a lot better once we get the paint on there, and the new appliances, and the new hardware)

We got a STEAL on this tile. It's 18x18, and we were able to get about half of what we needed for $.50 a piece instead for $4.15 a piece. We got hundreds of dollars of tile for $35!!! I really love the way the big tiles laid on the diagonal came out. The kitchen is galley and not that large, but the large tiles really open up the space, and make it feel larger.

Yikes! Under construction. It's hard to see and end in sight with toilets in random places.

Jarrod and Phoebe being silly. We have the granite, sink, floor, and faucet done in both bathrooms, all we need now is the mirror, paint, hardware and light fixture


  1. Cute post!

    I love the random toilets everywhere comment.

    I can SO relate. We had two toilets in our garage/shop building - one old, but working and one waiting to replace it. A mom of my son USED the new one that was sitting there!!!

    Imagine her surprise when it DIDN'T flush!!!!

    Just one of those remodeling stories I had to share....


  2. It's going to be fun watching the process. I can't wait to see more. :)

  3. Wow - you guys work fast!!! It's coming along so beautifully. Can't wait to see more.

  4. Can't wait to see more of the redo. Love how the kitchen counters look along with your tile.

  5. Love your blog, its on my favs. How did you take off the wallpaper and did you have the countertops installed?


I'd love to hear from you!
