Now and Then - a few pics
The house is coming right along. Here is the exterior in all its glory:



(here's how it looked a few years ago)




Here is what the new livingroom color looks like - although sadly the piano's already out of the house by now. Good-bye, lovely purple!


(remember the purple?)


Here's a closeup shot of the newly paint, new numbers, new mailbox, and new flowers.

Here's a tilted shot of the new bathroom color.

(the old bright yellow colors)


Here is M and me taking a short break to watch a Toledo Mud Hens game. (Why didn't they pick a cooler name, like Mud Hawks?


(remember when we watched the Cubs? it was colder then.)

Finally, we get a few messy pics. Here's what I looked like after vigorously scrubbing "texture" off of the office ceiling. (I wore sunglasses after it started getting in my eyes.)

...and last and smelliest, here is the pile of garbage I left on the street for pickup after ripping out half of my basement carpet. The second half left a pile of equal size, but that hasn't been photographed so you'll have to use your imagination.

Looks great! I do remember the purple and loved it. Still, onwards and upwards! Good luck with it all :)

I think it must be my screen, but the colours don't look drastically different. However, it all looks really tidy and welcoming - such a cute little place!

Thank you!

That would be wonderful. I have filled my car with stuff marked with my initials (KW) and a price. I tried to price pretty low, but it's hard to tell what's right! You are welcome to adjust the prices if it makes sense, or strike bargins as possible. Hopefully having more items will make the sale more appealing in general, and we'll both win. (:

The stuff that doesn't sell is probably best donated to charity, with only a few exceptions, and I can take care of that (or you can). We can talk about that when I drop it off.

If you will be out-and-about and would like to have lunch in Farmington Hills (where I work) in the next few days, let me know. Otherwise I will swing by your house after work tomorrow if that is possible? Unfortunately this evening I'm meeting with a realtor at 6:30pm, so I can't come join the Construct fun.

I'll still come by in a little bit tonight, so at least I'll have the back-seat of my car back. :) Thanks again, and see you soon!

What room in the new place will you be painting purple?
renniekins From: renniekins Date: August 5th, 2009 12:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don't know... I'll probably wait to personalize until the NEW new place, as we will be hoping to sell M's house after a year of living in it and saving money.

Flower pots on the porch are a big improvement over the recycling bin. ;)
renniekins From: renniekins Date: August 5th, 2009 12:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
I agree! Although the recycling is more inconvenient now - but then, so is everything.... ah well.

I can imagine. You have to keep telling yourself it's not forever.
