Well, one thing I learned right away about renovating, is...there's no time for blogging. The 30 days I had to finish my ''to do'' list were an absolute whirlwind. I would get to the house around 6 am and work until I had to be at my job at 9am. I worked all day then went to school at night. Two days a week I got out of class at 8pm and two days a week I got out of class at 10pm. Then, I was back at the house until 2, 3, and 4 o'clock in the morning. It was crazy and fun. So, now I am playing catch-up. These are some of the "before" pictures of the house. They are actually the real estate pictures I looked at online when I first found the house and a few pictures I took when I went and looked at it.
