Update

More photos of the wreakage.  
The most recent project - the flooring we're taking out near the back door.  
We're lucky that the boards are coming up easily.  We'd love to save them.  
Before we do we need to clean out under the house, fix the floor joist,
figure how to best insulate and then pick the new flooring.

{ Bathroom -  August 2012 }
Small, quaint, disgusting . . .  Yeah, no one is fooled by the "marble" walls

{ Bathroom - November 2012 }
Bright, Open, Airy.  I'm starting to like it!

A tight hallway.  This view is from the bathroom.  
To the left is a disgusting utility closet.  To the right is a disgusting regular closet.

In the photo below I'm standing where there used to be a wall
separating the kitchen from the front room.  
Directly ahead is a slim wall - to the left are the two front rooms.  
To the right is the rest of the kitchen and the bathroom.

This time I had help from Tasha.  To be continued next year.

In the three-ish months we've owned this building I'm already having fun looking back at the before and afters.  In October of 2011 who knew my future included me buying a 175 year old piece of poo and polishing it into a gem.  

Seriously, If anyone told me last year that my husband and I would be going on double dates with my parents - to Menards - to shop for roofing - I'd say they were crazy.  

And let's face it - If I knew that in a years time I'd be carefully posing a Batman doll and taking multiple photos of it (AND posting them online - geez) I would have guessed I was the crazy one.

Just goes to show you - what a difference a year can make!
