updates...

 My living room still looks like a construction site/junkyard...


but its coming along...just check out that fireplace and built-in...

not finished!

not finished!
not too shabby from where we started...


it still needs work. we have some finishing touches here and there, and we still have to add molding and wood planks over the fire place. they will hide all the wires from the tv and the cable box and the wii and the playstation and the roku box. etc...

im thinking something kinda like these...

and Mr H has already done a lot of work at hiding wires...there are about 7 trap doors so we can access all the wires  without deconstructing the whole thing...





Also we still have to replace the casing around the little window and door and add some molding that matches the other windows in the house...


but so far so good i think...


Im also toying around with the idea of painting the brick area of the fireplace but Ill wait until everything is finished to make that call...

we are hoping to have it done in another weekend or 2.  we still have to get started on this project soon...and by we i mean Mr H...


yup- thats a big ol pile of hardwood acclimating in our bedroom.

i think i need another month before this baby comes...on second thought no i dont...
