Breckenridge house - 6/24

Here is Josh, tearing down the last of the kitchen walls.

Here it is now - with all the walls down.

Here is the fireplace - before grout.

And here are some pictures with grout. The left side still isn't grouted yet, but the middle and right side are.

Close-up with grout.

More pics of our new house

Here are some more pics of our new house... this is the master bedroom. Right now we have our furniture in another bedroom because we are going to scrape the popcorn ceiling and also paint.

This is the master bath

and closet.

This is the bedroom we have our furniture in.

Spare bedroom

This is a before shot of the kitchen. The previous owners had a yellow kitchen with yellow ceilings and a fruit wallpaper boarder (which mom removed for us... thanks, Mom!).

I painted the kitchen green with a white ceiling. It was quite a job to paint over it, especially the ceiling. Required 2 coats, and it was not especially fun. However, I really like it now, so I guess it was all worth it.

We did get a new dual fuel oven/stove, but the guy is coming tomorrow to install the gas line so right now it is sitting in our dining room. This is the old stove.

This is the loft, which we made into an office.

This is the front room - I couldn't get my flash to go off during this pic, but hopefully you get the idea.

This is the dining room (and our new stove).

Pics of the back yard...

New Homes

I recently took a road trip to CO to go to
Mary Jo's surprise 60th birthday party and
to see Josh's and Molli's and Jay's new homes. This is a picture of the front of Josh's new house.
You'll note the OLD Jeep....

This is a shot of his back yard. It's a lovely
huge back yard, with lots of trees and grass.

This is a shot of the back of the house.... He got
a new grill....ready for him to become the chef of
the Pflum Pfamily!

This is Molli's and Jay's new house. It's actually
not very far from their old house.... neither is
Josh's..... his is in one direction, Molli's and Jay's
in another.....

A view of the kitchen..........

..and the fireplace in the family room (and Jay)....

...and the back yard.....

....and Gracie....
... and Kuba.

Finally finished. The pattern for these is called "Jaywalkers" because they go up and down like jaywalking in Boston. I think they look better in the picture than they really are because the top is stretched out. The gauge isn't quite right.

Still waiting for pictures of the new houses! It's been 2 weeks. I think we've been being very patient.
