"224...225, whatever it takes."

Well, I am home alone this weekend playing Mr. Mom while Amy is off for a scrapbooking weekend with the Jensen girls. So since one of a Mom's primary responsibilities is to update the family blog, I thought I would try my hand at this art. I don't have anything cute to say or post, but for some time now Amy has been asking me to take some "after" pictures of our house. Since moving in we have remodled a bit and painted a lot. Below are some of the most dramatic changes to our house. Enjoy!!!

Nice job on the posting. It looks like your playing Amys role very well.

We love these picutes. You really have done an impressive job on your house. Those pictures look like they came stright out of a Pottery Barn magazine.

Very impressive ~ you wouldn't even know it was the same house! And, I'm also impressed Trent picked up Amy's blogging reponsibilities! Nice work on all of the above.

It looks really good. I like how you tore down that one wall. It looks so much better and so open. Gotta love fixer-uppers.

Nice cave!!! It has morphed well over the years. You should have included pictures of the two front bedrooms. Maybe you can include a photo of us installing windows in 10 degree temperatures - fun times!

What a beautiful house! Well done, you guys!

Wow. What amazing changes you made. I loved the before and after shots as well as your improvements. Great idea to get rid of that wall.

First of all Trent, props to you for letting Amy get out so much.

Secondly, your house is beautiful! I love how much more open it looks with the changes.

Maybe I'm an idiot, but I don't get your post title?

I LOVE that you posted. You really are the all-in-one husband.

So fun to see before/after pics of your place. I can't believe how dramatic your changes are. Wow! Honestly, your place is just beautiful. I am 500 times more impressed by all you did by yourself. After just painting my room, I was so spent. It was tons of work. I cant' imagine how you did so much. It all turned out so, so nice.

I was going to post before/after pics, but my little "remodel" will pale in comparison.

What a good Dad you are, Trent. I love all the renovations in your house.

Brenda said...

All of the remodeling looks great!

Bennifer said...

Wow! I'm impressed! Looks fantastic! And you did all this with five little ones running around?! You deserve a medal!
