The Beginning of the Beginning

21 Jun

And so it begins…..  We closed on our cute, frame fixer upper today.  Excitement went to fear in a hurry as we walked through the house this time knowing that everything was ours from the beautiful pine floors, to the too small kitchen and the asbestos tiles lurking beneath it.   We have decided to keep a blog for home project as much so that we can hopefully impart some wisdom on other brave souls like ourselves, but also so that we have a record of everything and can look back at our work someday and be proud of our accomplishments.

Day One we took some basic measurements of the downstairs, picked up the color wheel from Sherwin Williams and started to unearth 2 layers of old, vinyl tiles from the kitchen to find out if maybe, just maybe we have pine floors under that mess.  The jury is still out.  What do you think?Prayer for wood
