The Remodel

Earlier in November Dave and my dad and uncle started the remodel in our house. We're turning the downstairs bedroom into an open den for the computer and desk and we're going to make the loft (where the computer is now) into a new bedroom. The downstairs is going a little faster than I expected. Dave and his friend Kevin are going to work on it today. The flooring for the room is in and Dave is going to choose the paint color. I'm excited to see what it looks like and more excited to move all of the furniture down there so we can start on the new upstairs bedroom. Trevor and Colin are going to share the new room and we'll put Logan in their old room. I have so many ideas for their room so I hope I can make it look the way it does in my head. Here are a few pictures of what Dave and my dad and uncle worked on that first day...
They cut out a new door way and moved around some of the old outlets. We're going to keep this open to the hall and not put doors on.
They took off the closet doors and cut the wall back a little. This is where the corner part of the computer desk will sit. The old doorway to the left has been closed in and we're going to do some built in shelves. I can't wait to post the finished pictures!

I know this is probably a lot of work, but it looks like it would be fun too. I can't wait to see the final product. Also, be thinking of some time in January that you are available so that we can get together.
