The Start of Renovations

Project 1: Ripping out tile

I was excited to walk in and find our tile floors almost completely ripped up. The flooring was in excellent condition. There was just one problem... the tile was white with this ugly texture. It looked like clear bacteria. Yeah... gross, I know. It was EVERYWHERE on the entire first floor. I was so excited to see it gone! By the way, I'm saving before and after pictures to post after it's all done. Here's the results of day 1 on the first floor (taken on my iphone).... The new ones are going in later this week!
Day 1



Family room


Day 2

Dining room

Kitchen... with a toilet. Huh?

Living room


And the master bathroom... last minute decision

Renovations are supposed to take about a month. I'm super anxious and cannot wait to move in! I still can't believe it is ours. I have been waiting for this for a loooong time.
