House Update

It had been a while since I had been over to Alex's house to take some pictures of the progress. You will recognize some of the pictures from a previous post but I wanted people to get a pretty good visual of what it was like before and now with some changes that have taken place. The house is coming a long, seems like it is taking a long time but when we sat down the other night and figured how long it has been since Alex closed on the place, it really hasn't been as long as we thought. Anyway, here are some updates.
This is the picture standing at the front door looking towards the kitchen.
Here is that same wall with the two entry ways made. The one on the left is the new entry way they (Bob and Alex) cut and on the right the entry way was shifted a couple feet to the right. The entry way on the left will lead into the kitchen where the bathroom door will be to the left. There will be a six foot wall between both entry ways that will be easier to see once the rest of the drywall is installed.
Here is the lovely green room!
Here it is blue. In this picture it looks a little more purple but it really is blue. Kathy also pulled up the carpet and will be working on the wood floor.
This is the only decent picture I could actually find to show the difference in the size of the main bathroom. This is before the wall was taken out and I was standing in the kitchen to take this picture. It is sort-of hard to see in this picture but if you look on the right side of the photo you can see a cupboard that is outside of the bathroom...

...and in this picture that same cupboard is inside the bathroom. Right now the new tub/shower is installed and the wood stuff on the floor for the linoleum or tile.
This is a picture of the door on the left that leads to the garage and the basement.
This is now the outline of where a little porch-like area will be when you come up the stairs and then on this side in the kitchen will be cupboards and counters.
This is looking down the stairs towards the basement and the garage.This is now the new "hallway" looking towards the basement and garage.

This is the bathroom now. The walls are painted a light blue and then Alex will stain the "wayne's coating" (I have no idea how it is spelled or if that's even close - so the wood stuff) so that it matches his vanity and then I think he wants to add a thick trim around the top.
That's all for now but I will keep you updated as progress is made.
