1960s Home Renovation Update

On Sept. 1, Ben and I got possession of our 1960s split level.

Check out this post to see what it looked like when we bought it.

Since then, lots and lots and lots of wallpaper has been removed. Yay!

My grandpa also very graciously volunteered to paint, and finished the entire lower level.

Our good friend (and carpenter!) Jim came down for a day and installed two new exterior doors for us.

Some guy named Frank repaired some holes and cracks in the walls.

Here are some pictures showing some of the changes, as of Oct. 13 when I took these pictures:

Here’s a couple of good befores and afters:

This view is looking toward steps that go up to the main floor; two doors go to a craft room and a spare bedroom; steps go down to basement.
