The Unexpected Remodel

Check out the fun at my parents' house!!!

The remodel was planned, it was the timing that was a bit unexpected.
I'm sure it will only take 2 weeks :o)
(anyone other than my family watch the money pit on a regular basis?)

This is pretty much how our house looked all the time growing up. It explains why when I smell paint or sawdust my first thought is home :o) 
There were always lots of friends and family helping (usually in the wee hours). Everyone worked, no matter how old (or should I say young). There was always something that you could do even if you could only carry 3 shingles up the ladder at a time :o) That was me when I was 9 years old. We thought it was fun most of the time!

I love all those familiar sights and sounds!

I should have pictures of  the finished product to share very soon. Have fun Mom and Dad!!!

  1. Ahhh those sights and sounds too. As hard, overwhelming, and unending as it is, we love it in some weird way. It is our lifestyle...2 weeks at a time. Glad we provided you with so many childhood memories! I will make sure to send the link to Ms. Cameron. None of it would be the same without the Joneses.
    Love you so much, Mom.
