FARMHOUSE // August renovation update

It’s been two months since the last update! Eek! Things slowed down on the reno once we got home and Shane had less free time. And then we had a baby, so even less free time now! 

But never fear! There has been definite progress. 

The upstairs is completely gutted.

The chimney has come down since I took this picture. 

Shane and his parents took the windows off the porch in preparation for taking off the porch!

And then the porch came off.

One of those big branches on that giant cottonwood tree is going to come down this week. We really, REALLY don’t want to take the tree down. But if one of those branches fell, it would crush the house 🙁 Don’t worry. I’ll be planting more trees in the future. 

Today Shane took down the ceiling tiles in the living and dining room. It revealed the awesome 9 foot ceiling!

So there you go! Our contractor will start working on the upstairs mid-September. We’ll get the slab poured for the new porch done soon as well. Things are moving along nicely 🙂
