Here are a few before and after pictures of the house. Some of the pictures are from before we moved in because we forgot to take pictures of it empty. Now we still have a lot of work to do, even in these rooms that we've worked on. In the dining room for instance, we are going to recover the chairs; in the living room there's stuff everywhere sitting in places other than where they will end up; in Jeremy and Emma's room there's still some work to do there with touching up paint and whatnot.
Jeremy and Emma's room before (complete with previous owner's stuff).
During the process of getting the laminate off the floor.
Laminate off, now on to wood sanding, polishing, and polyurethane.
And the (nearly) end result. We still need to put dressers in and clothes, books, etc. We're leaving the funky light because it isn't nearly as bad as the rest of them.

Process of getting wallpaper off.
Painted, carpet removed, wood sanded, stained, and polyurethaned.
Nasty curtains down, ones that match wall colors up.
Living room. You can see where we left the carpet, Nathan and our friend Ryan did that.

Living room front windows and walls after.
Our room which we haven't done much with other than take down those pink drapes and that pink light. Without them the nasty pink haze is gone.
