What This Old House Has taught Me

  • I have learned how to remove linoleum, tile and carpet from concrete
  • How to lay ceramic tile & grout, 
  • How to install hardwood floors
  • How to paint & stain everything!
  • How to remove, plane, sand and repaint trim
  • refinish furniture
  • insert a gas log fireplace
  • How to lay sod, plant trees, bushes, a garden, mow, cut and trim 
HOWEVER~ I can not sew, fold laundry nicely, walk in heels, style hair, or make a pretty bow.

This Old House...Under Construction Again

First thing we did was remove the tile in the hallway

The new floor!
Next we removed the carpet from the dining room and installed hardwood floors

The dining room complete with the refinished Minich Family table.

Life living "under construction"!

We are almost done, spent today refinishing all the trim and laying more floors.

It has been a huge undertaking and we will be glad to put the house back together but so far it has been well worth it! Final pictures coming soon!
