I like going back to see what we were doing last year and what the house looked like. Last November we were working on laying the pavers for the driveway and finishing up the garage. It looks like in December is when the first floor walls were torn down and we started reconstructing it to how it is today. Walking around and looking at everything somewhat decorated brings a smile to our faces. Such a huge difference in a year! I still remember how it looked and we lived with it for so long these new spaces still seem a little strange, but they're a much welcomed change. In less than a year we finished 2.5 bathrooms and reconfigured a living room and two bedrooms into a larger living room, a mud room, and a new den/flex space... well almost finished, but close enough.
