24 hours later....

Within the first 24 hours of being homeowners we ripped up carpeting in 75% of the house and I think changed the entire aesthetic of the house.  It really was like a completely different house when we were finished.

As if that wasn't enough for the first 24 hours we also decided it was the best weekend for us to move.  So at 6:30 Saturday morning Nick woke me up and we started the exciting process of moving all of our belongings into the front yard so they could be loaded onto the moving truck.  We decided to hire movers for this move and let me tell you it was the best decision we have ever made.  It was by far the smoothest, fastest move ever!  Our entire house was packed up, moved across town, and unloaded by 11:30 Saturday morning (and the movers didn't actually show up until 8).  So literally within 24 hours of becoming homeowners we were moved into our new house.  I didn't get any pictures of the actual moving process but here is what our house looked like approximately 24 hours after the pictures of tearing up carpet:


Dining Room

Guest Bedroom


Master Bedroom

Master Bath


Kitchen from other side

Living Room 

 I apologize for the terrible lighting.  None of the rooms in the house have overhead lights except the kitchen so we are sort of living in the dark and moving around some really ugly lamps that were left in the house by the previous owner.  That is on the list of things that we will need to update quickly.

Since Saturday things have drastically changed.  Almost every room is now unpacked and almost livable so I will post some updated pictures soon.
