this is what our living room looked like a little over a week ago... and now we're moved in! we've still got a lot more to do, but we've come a long way. we are definitely knee-deep in home ownership... and/or old plaster, ceiling tiles, and 2x4's :)
we couldn't do this all on our own... thank goodness we have so many great friends and family members who are willing to endure all the dust, sweat, nails, and falling debris to help us out. thanks guys, you're the best!
