House In Progress, the big WIP of the year so far

Ok, here we go, some pics that show one of the reasons I haven't been posting as much so far this year. The house!

New paint, new light fixtures, new floor. Floor in progress, paint done except for new nice wide baseboards and trim/touch ups, and new light fixtures in.

Looking from the inside of the living room towards the front door, entry way, and kitchen.

Painted laundry room, two shades of green. We also installed the cabinet, and removed some hideous old open shelving units that collected dust and displayed clutter.

Looking into the living room, flooring in here is done!

A detail of the flooring we're putting in, "Georgia Pecan" laminate (Pergo-type) stuff. This stuff is really cool. The way it locks in and locks together. Great wear, durability, and resiliance too.

Now...if we can only finish it all!

(hee, and you thought the biggest WIP of the year was the baby. I suppose you're right. But no pics of that one yet!)

Oh, wow - that looks fantastic! I love the flooring you chose. Can't wait to see the baseboards, too.

Did you get free cat butt with the flooring? That first picture cracked me up.

It's lookin' good. And smart idea going hardwood. Your other WIP will stain carpet ;-)

Yay for home improvements! A great way to get ready for the additional household member. Nice choice on those floors and paint.

I've done both large scale remodeling and babies... babies are easier.

The house looks great and you'll love all that open floor space when you've got kid toys all over the floor.

I love the flooring! It brightens up the room and makes it look airy and full of light.

Your house looks fab - nesting are we?

Yeah, I didn't buy maternity clothes until I was like 17 weeks pregnant. And only then it was because I literally could not fit into anything I owned, save yoga pants.

A shower at 15 weeks? Wow. Mighty optimistic.
