Before and After...

We are still not done yet but here are some before and after pictures....
This is what the stairwell used to look like. It was nice and dark!
And this is what the bonus room looked like after some of the furniture was already taken out...

This is what was on the other side of the door from the bonus room... lots of empty space that we used for storage.

Now, this is what the stairwell and bonus room area look like without the stairwell and wall there.... a whole lot brighter and a whole lot more open!!! We took out the walls and the door, added columns with rails (they are not done yet) and had hardwoods laid throughout the upstairs... they are currently being sanded and stained so it will be a few days before we can get any more pictures as we are not able to walk up there for a while...


When you go down this hallway, there is an open area on the right, a bathroom to the first door on the left, a closet on the second door to the left, then the second floor kitchen, the den/family room, and the sitting area. There are two doors in the family room... one is a crawl area for access, the other is a storage closest that runs the length of the house.

Again, this was before...

This is the after....

This is the bathroom...

This is the closet...

This is the kitchen area...

This is the den/family room...

This was the before area of the sitting room... we had to rip out some of the roof support line and rebuild this area to open this us!

Can you tell we have been busy?? Chayse is having so much fun running around up there through all of the open areas. She went to the doctor this week and has reached 21 pounds! She is growing away and is so much fun to watch. She has recently started walking on her tippy-toes, she dances all the time now, she is very vocal (although we are still not sure what she says half of the time!), and she LOVES to be outside. She could care less if it is 110 degrees out there or not... that is where she wants to be!

The bean is growing away, and I do mean growing. He is consistently measuring larger that I am as far as his gestational age. I am still having contractions but he is not engaged, I have not dilated any and am not effaced so that is a great thing! So far so good!! It is hard to believe that in just a few weeks we will have TWO little babies in this house!! Once we get construction done upstairs, we will be cleaning out the guest room and office so that we can start his nursery.

Glad the little bean is doing good and growing perfectly!
