Although it has been a slow but steady progress, I’m finally starting to get the hang of what the word “renovation“ really means. Because it is an old house, when in the process of renovating, almost always new things just start to pop-out. Suddenly damage water pipes, poor electrical work and the worst of molds (just to name a few of the mishaps) are the order of the day. So, while dealing with all these (and anxiously dying to start decorating) I’ve decided it was time to put some of the demolition and progress pictures out there to ease my mental burden.
Hope you don’t find them to ugly too look (okay, really they are!!), but beware of the dust and please do use a mask while taking a look at my renovation progress.
A quick glimpse through the front door will make you sneeze. It’s just that these days only dust and almost phantasmagorical foot prints seem to be living in our new home.
As the days pass by, I am amazed to see so much change been made specially in our bathroom. We expanded this bathroom into the hallway to add a double vanity and some shelves for storage.
One of our next big projects will involve paint. It is interesting to see old layers of paint peeking out in some walls. Can you guess how many times has this house been painted?
