The construction pictures were all taken in August 2010, about 50 days before Hudson was due!! I didn't do a great job of photographing everything, so most of the before pictures are from when we walked through the house with a realtor (not our stuff.) Here we go!
Walking in the front door -
The before view from the front door...
The new view from the front door.
The old kitchen...
The new kitchen (below).
We were able to re-use and refinish all the old cabinets.
Notice all the little Hudson touches? Trucks and trains are parked all around and if you look closely there is a little blue string from Hudson's balloon in several pictures. It has been floating all around the house, sneaking in pictures and scaring me at night.
Britt, he uses your guys in the most imaginative ways! We will come back to the sunroom.
Back to the old entry way.
The new one.
The old living room. Yes, that is a full sized stuffed grizzly bear.
The new, I think Hudson would probably prefer the bear, but oh well!
The old bathroom. AND the master carpenter who made it all possible.
Shower in progress
Hudson's bedroom before.
Hudson's bedroom after.
Now for the fun part and all the real work, the addition.
The house use to end here.
But Glenn punched a hole in the wall.
And Steve helped him turn it into a beautiful addition!
Looking into the Sunroom!
The window seat I always wanted!
Colin made this sweet reading lamp from an old railroad light.
Looking back into the kitchen from Sunroom.
Again, thanks to everyone (especially this guy) who helped! We could not have done it without you! THANK YOU!
