Week 1…..

The day of closing this is what the front of the house looked like!
We had closed on the other house 3 days prior, so there was no time to waste on getting started on this one.  Thankfully, my parents live just a few miles away and we were bunking with them, but we were anxious to get life under way in the new pad.
The first task on hand was to remove the popcorn ceiling.  I knew that if it was going to be done we had to do it before we moved our furniture in.  Although we had visions of saving tons of money and using all our spare time with spray bottles and scrapers…(NOT!)…we made the best move ever and hired Vasquez Painting Company to get the job done.
WORTH EVERY PENNY!!
They prepped perfectly and in record time …. less than 1 day had it all removed from the entire first floor and almost all the second floor!!
During the 3 day removal we continued to bunk at my parents.  Once the mess was cleaned up and they started painting, we finally moved into the house into the basement.  We still had no furniture, or kitchen supplies….or beds….
We cooked in the RV and slept in the basement on air mattresses for 4 nights
The weather was perfect…
Asher enjoyed meeting our new neighbor Pearl!  She is the sweetest donkey!
Another big decision we made was to have the house painted inside.  Yep, you heard it…I let someone else do all the painting of the walls! Gasp!
I’m so thankful we did!
What colors did I choose?

    Sometimes even though you CAN do something doesn’t mean you have to do it! I’m sure that removing that textured ceiling was a bear and worth every penny to have someone else do it!
