Grant street project: We Moved In!

Before we moved all the boxes and furniture and chaos under this new roof (which we are so enjoying!), I took some pictures of the mostly complete renovation. Glad I did, because we are certainly wading through piles of boxes now.  I have had my hands busy busy busy, but progress is sloooow around here with baby Set. I can get next to nothing done while he is awake! I want to post before and after pics in a future post. Maybe once I have a teensy bit more time with two free hands.

One outside pic

She looks great with a second layer!!:))

Now for updates on inside...

We opened up the original small doorway and added French doors. That room is where we used to have our eating/crafting table. Now it is designated as our craft table/desk/office room. 

The butcher block peninsula is new. We took down two smaller pieces on each side to create a place for barstools. We don't have those yet. 

The new lighting has been even better than I imagined. The dimmers are one of my new favorite gadgets. 

But in reality, I've already made all this newness a mess. Hopefully, I'll get it much more organized in the next few weeks. But Annette and I are already loving this 'work' space. It's like our mini classroom. 

This is our master bath, which was actually our kids' old bathroom and hallway area. Same window. That window that I had to break through once to 'rescue' Charlie once when he locked himself in. I absolutely am super sentimental about this old/new house... and am thrilled with the things that remain the same since the renovation. 

Hardware still needs to be put on. I changed my mind on hardware about 3 times :/

My side of closet. Isaac's side has several more drawers than my side. Big upgrade from our teensy closets before. 

Our master bedroom, which used to be Annette and Charlie's bedroom. 

Now these pulls, I loved. Got them right on the first try ;)

Laundry room

Under the stairs powder room 

Found the tiny sink online

Still need a mirror

This is our front room when you first walk in house. Nothing new except paint, carport door moved in here, and taller ceilings. 

Hard it get a picture bc of the sun in windows.

These are temporary porch lights until the ones we ordered come in. 

This is what you see when you first come in. 

Baby gates are complete, but need to be painted. 

And that's most of the downstairs. Except for the little den that used to be our master bedroom. It now has a vaulted ceiling which you can barely see in the background. Then the dining area with fireplace is to the left of den.

But Set just woke up, so I'll do the other rooms in another post, 

Maybe one day I'll get completely unpacked and organized. Doubt it will be anytime soon!!

Happy Friday!
