I swear the day after we bought, the market dropped. :D Okay, maybe not the day after but something that smacks very close to that. We have had to rip out walls, replace flooring, repair plumbing, do some electrical and re-drywall parts. so far, we have done a fairly decent job on a very tight budget. Here are some of the before pictures of the townhouse:
Here are some during or after pictures of our work:
We still have some work to do. Unfortunately after last night, we have some EXTRA work to do. I am the queen of multitasking as is necessary when you have children. I started the water for washing the dishes in the sink and while it was filling, i went to the bottom of the stairs to ask hubby something. From there, i heard the unmistakable sounds of my two year old having a huge temper tantrum and calling for me. My motherly instint kicked in and up i went to the aid of my poor fretful 2 year old.
Oh yes, now you are all thinking of the water running. Well i was not unfortunately. 10 minutes later we all decended downstairs to see a flood spreading across our lovely new LAMINATE flooring we haven't even finished paying for yet and which we spent an entire back and knee breaking weekend laying down. A call to arms was sent out... or at least a call to towels. Every towel in the house was gathered. Laminate flooring is NO friend of moisture and does not take kindly to 2 inches of water pooling on top of it... splooshing alarmingly beneath it.
I could cry. Actually, i did. I very very rarely do something stupid/foolish/careless... but when i do, it is a feat of SPECTACULAR proportions.
