The new nursery…almost

We always seem to have some sort of home improvement project going on.  Sometimes it’s small and involves cleaning out a closet or bookshelf and sometimes it’s a much bigger deal.  We’re currently in the middle of one of those bigger projects and it’s all in anticipation of our growing family.

When thinking about which bedroom I wanted to use as a nursery for the newest addition to our family, I decided that it might be best to use one of the upstairs bedrooms.  But, it was in bad shape.  The room definitely needed new carpet and paint, but I had bigger plans!  I was able to talk Sean into ripping down the ceiling and walls, pulling up the carpet – all the way down the staircase – and installing new windows.

Back in February, we enlisted the help of Big Jim, Nana, and Uncle Kevin to demolish the entire space.  We’re moving forward and improving the heating/cooling of the room, adding insulation, and installing new windows.  Below are some pictures of what it looks like now.  Stay tuned to watch the progress…
