turning a house into a HOME (Project #1)

J has lived in his house for just over 5 years now. It took me moving in about 3 years ago for him to turn his Bachelor pad into a home. He had visions of what his house could be someday but never really wanted to start remodeling. Always hoping the market would turn and he could sell as is. One day he came to the realization that we wouldn't be moving for quite sometime and we better get making this house a home.

Now J works 4- 10 hours shifts 2:00 pm until 1:00 am Monday-Thursday. He wanted to try and do as much of the remodel as he could, I would help from time to time but I'm not the handiest lady out there. I was there for moral support and supervision really.

We live in a 1 1/2 story house that was build in 1933. So when we talk about remodeling it is not fun. This do not go right or on the time frame we think it will go.

Project #1:We started with the upstairs/loft area.
This was what it looked like after our renters moved out. (J moved into my apartment with me and he rented his house out. When my lease was up we moved into his house) They did a great job painting, just not the colors we would have picked out. We did leave it like that until a few months ago. We started with painting the trim/window frames and carpet!!! We pretty much finished there with the upstairs. Knowing that one day we would move downstairs into one of the bedrooms we wanted to focus our attention downstairs.
