Utah Home: August 2006-November 2007

Oh happy day! Our Eagle Mountain house is (finally) in escrow.

It was definitely our biggest undertaking ever. Redoing everything upstairs and then finishing out 1300 square feet of basement. It's one thing to paint walls. It's another thing to have to decide where those walls should be, frame them out, run electrical, hang drywall, mud & tape, sand. Sand again. Sand again.

6 months and one tile saw later, our cozy quarters were transformed from a 3 bedroom/2 bath to a 5 /3 + office. We originally thought we could finish it up in 3 months. Five kiddos underfoot can slow you down big time... next time I'll be smarter and ship them off to Grandma's :)

Here are a few "before and afters" of our adventures.

  2. Ok, your coming to my house to help me with the boys' room! Seriously your house was soo amazing, I bet it was so hard to move from there after all that work! I cant wait to get out of military housing and into our own place... I really think it will be atleast 5-8 years! You have great decorating style!
