After many months of wishing, hoping, dreaming, and praying, we finally made major progress on our remodeling. We spent the last few weeks working like crazy to get things ready for carpet. The kids were so excited, they started moving down 10 minutes after the carpet installers left. I was just as excited as the kids...o.k. probably even more excited. By bedtime, we had moved all the beds down. The next day, we had everything cleared out of the bedrooms upstairs. There is still lots and lots to do, but at least we now have room to spread out a little (four kids, one bedroom...made bedtime a little difficult). Although it took way longer than I ever would have imagined, it was worth it. All the planning in my head and on 3D Home Architect paid off. I'm loving everything about it and can't wait for the rest to get finished. Now I just need to find the energy to get it done. Thanks dad for all your help, we couldn't have done it without you!

Here's Sean priming the walls. I seriously can't even tell you how I dreamed of this day!

Kylee in her pink room. I actually think she kind-of misses sleeping with the boys.

Alyssa's little room. We don't care about the size, we're just glad she can sleep without the boys climbing in her bed.

The boys room. It seems like so much space when there are just two beds instead of four. They still don't go to bed good.

Congratulations! That is awesome! Maybe you could give us a tour when we are out there next week. We would love to see it in person!

Congrats! We just started on our basement and I'm not looking forward to the process, but am so ready for the final results. Maybe I should look into the 3D home architect? Was it a program you bought?

hi there- love the house! Can't wait for mine to be done too. By the way check out my blog and maybe you'll recognize the drink Jordan took from your house- it is all over his face. That cracks me up about Aaron and Collin climbing in bed with Alyssa - I can only imagine when Jordan will pick that up. Oh no!
