sigh...the house is done....

Well....on September 17th we started ripping things apart in our new house in order to renovate...

we started soooooo much at once....

Kitchen: Ripped out old wall oven and counter burner, cut hole for new stove, cut hole for new dishwasher, installed both, repainted the cupboards inside and out, painted the walls, new lights, new flooring ( done by Kent Stewart...I didn't want to screw that up! ) , etc..

Livingroom: painted the walls, installed new curtain rods/curtains

Master Bedroom: painted walls an awesome blue, new carpet ( first time carpeting...took me 5 hours )

Baby G's room: painted walls an awesome light blue ( no we dont' know if we're having a boy ), new carpet..took less time...

Elizabeth's Office: painted walls an awesome lime green, carpet...took even less time...

Hit rut because doors wouldn't fit back on because of new carpet...had to cut them...then couldn't find the pins...doh..bought new ones...all good...

Basement: stripped old wallpaper, painted an awesome orange...looked terrible with the pine...painted an awesome Red called "Flamenco Dress" looks great now...got carpet installed by Kent Stewart ( again...didn't want to screw up doing a seam...he did a kick ass job! can't even see the seam! )

So...yeah...the Orange we used in the basement but ended up painting over...I used for my office....and it rocks....

and tonight...I finished installing the carpet...

and for the first time since May 29th 2005 I'm sitting at my desk, in my awesome office chair that Elizabeth got me for my 25th birthday...and maybe tomorrow I'll pick up my other desk that she made me for my 25th birthday....and put it in my office...

yes...

my office

in my house...

something I didn't think I'd experience for a long time...

but here I am...and I wish you could see the smile on my face...

I'm the happiest man alive...

and I'll be even happier soon because Elizabeth is almost 37 weeks pregnant, our baby is kicking up a storm and about ready to come out and meet this wonderful world...and meet his/her awesome parents and family that are so incredibly happy and excited to meet him/her.
