Today was the day, we just couldn't wait any longer. We moved into the new master bedroom, formerly the "guitar room." There are still finishing touches, like the trim, crown moulding, touch-up paint, closet doors (who'd think that they'd be special order??), and real bedroom furniture (hello Ikea!). Even Frank's bed has made it's way upstairs. He's still not sure what to think, but it won't be long before he realizes that he's at eye level with the squirrels outside.
Since we've been so focused on moving into the new room, we've neglected blogging on the BIG addition project, stay tuned...
Five years ago we decided to take the plunge and buy our first house, we found a fixer-upper in South Central Wisconsin. We became the owners of the Old Arnold House, as it is known to everyone in our Village of 1500 people. My husband is as handy as they come and convinced me that it was a great idea to turn the house around together. Along the way we've learned a lot about home improvement, each other, and the Arnolds. It seems that everyone has a crazy story about the Arnold family.
We've had a lot of help along the way (THANK YOU everyone!) and want to share our continued progress with them and provide a cautionary tale to those of you who dare to fancy yourselves handy!
