Home At Last...


It's been a long process, but after over a year of searching and 2 months of dealing with closing chaos, we FINALLY moved into our new home this last week. Although the home was built in 2006 and is in near perfect condition, we still have a long list of projects for the house. The project at the top of our list was a weird entertainment niche in the living room. Ever since we first saw the home, we disliked the niche and decided we wanted to take it out. Since we were going to be re-carpeting, we figured it would be best to take it out right away before we moved in our furniture.

After many long hours and the help of A LOT of family, we finally finished our renovation project. Luckily, Ryan was able to do the demolition and drywalling work himself which made the project much more affordable. And now, after a week of chaos and many late nights, we have finally finished the living room!

Mid-Project (2 days ago)

After


Luckily, we've had plenty of help with all our projects. With the help of our demolition team, furniture movers, cleaners, lighting guy, and drywallers (otherwise known as our families), we've been able to get quite a few of the projects done pretty quickly. This last weekend, Ryan's parents even came down to help us get settled. Although I'm pretty sure our families consider us slave drivers after this last week, we're extremely appreciative of all the hard work and long hours they put in.

In addition to our living room project, we've also been painting and re-vamping the other rooms in the house. Yesterday, we also finished our master bedroom. As we finish more rooms we'll be sure to post more pics of the house. Stay tuned...

Wow! Looks great! I love the shade of blue you used to paint the entertainment center/family room (or whatever it is)...

I love the house. I'm not a fan of your typical AZ stucco house, and you've found one that isn't! I'll be home in August to visit!

Dang guys, looks great. What were they smoking when they made that niche in the first place? It looks way better. We'll have to talk about swinging through on the way back since we missed you guys on the way down. Maybe around August 23rd-ish.
