A Few More Before and After's

I didn't get a good start on this part of the house. This is after The Peddler had started on the hallway. You're looking straight on at the laundry room on the right and linen closet on the left. There was nothing here before except for a hole.

This is looking down the hallway now. Far right door is the furnace. Middle doors, washer and dryer, last door is the linen closet. Door on far left is the bathroom, and on the other side of that is the bedroom.

This is the closet/second bedroom before. This was one big room that was made into two rooms separated only by some paneling. The walls around the cedar lined closet had apparently been torn down for more room.

This little space is just off the closet and will be the office/craft room.

Another shot of the horrible shape this house was in.

Missing cedar in the closet.

New enclosed walk in closet.

New cedar and some custom made Peddler shelving. Hmmmm smells so good in here now.

Old wall separating the two bedrooms. Had to move the electrical (if you can call it that) before the wall came down.

Lovely blue paneling and window that only opened by dropping down.

Beginnings of a new bedroom. Still has the old window. There also used to be the same kind of window on the far back wall of the room.

Almost finished bedroom with new window. Excuse the mess, The Peddler's brother is here helping and we could offer him only the best of air mattresses and patio furniture. But hey, at least we now have cable. I don't we think we could have got him to come without that. It is football season afterall!Old, disgusting bathroom complete with water heater.

Midway bathroom. The water heater has been relocated.

New tub, tile and vanity!

That's it for now. We've got the kitchen to do, cabinets to install, flooring to put down in the kitchen and livingroom and walls, ceiling, and beams to paint. We're getting there!

Not Much Posting Going On Around Here...

But here are some photos of what we've been up to for the last month.

We camped here on the California coast. This was taken from our camp spot. You can't much closer to the beach that this. It was beautiful!

We saw lots and lots of these every day!

The dogs loved wrestling on the beach.

Roxy loved the water. She would stick her whole head in and eventually got brave enough to head out into the waves.

We went to a ton of yard sales in this. Anyone know what this is? It sure did get alot of attention!

We visited the Cornell Winery. This greets you at the door.

We ate here. This is called "The Old Place". Rick has talked about it for years and he finally took me there. Loved it!

It's really small inside so get there early. There are only five booths and they were all reserved. So, we sat at the bar!

This bar to be exact!

This wayward picture of the winery wouldn't cooperate so this is where it is staying! Maybe it had too much wine. haha

We found an air show to stop by at.
This was simply called "The Wind" and was really hard to get a decent picture of.

Rick and his longtime buddy Dave.

This is a C130. This is just like the plane that Rick flew to Antarctica to when he worked there years ago.

And this was today's lunch. Avocado, tomato, cilantro, chicken, and a squeeze of lime!
