A look back at 2012

We did a lot of work to our house in 2012. It is amazing to see the before and after photos and to think how much more we have planned to accomplish!
Bathroom Renovation Complete
Prior to moving, we hired contractors to rewire and replumb the house, drywall installers to install walls and ceilings, and a floor expert to spruce up our hardwood floor. In between contractors, The Mister painted walls and ceilings in the living room, dining room, kitchen, office, guest bedroom, and master bedroom and installed tile in the bathroom and laundry room.

So between December 2011 and March 2012, this is what happened:
