Interior Tuesdays: Remodeling and Redesigning

Three years and 9 months ago I found out I was pregnant. We also started our house remodel. Not two things you normally would like to coincide but it gave us some pretty intense motivation to finish everything up in time for our first kid's arrival. We didn't just remodel either...we basically reBUILT. We gutted our house down to the studs and added about 8 feet to the backend and basically started over. The house was built in 1918 and didn't have insulation. This is sort of a big deal when in snows in the winter. And I wanted a dining area. So we decided to go big or go home. Here are some "during" photos...eeeks. I cannot believe we did this - we were living at various friend's houses and homesat all around town that summer. It was NOT the way you would like your pregnancy to be but so be it. I had a beautiful home afterwards.
 We did a lot of the work ourselves - especially the demo cause that's fun
 tearing the backend off
 we found layers upon layers of crazy wallpaper all over the house

ahhh...this is near the end. finishing up trim and loose ends
I also did all the tile work - had never done it before but everything turned out great. Here is the backsplash and I also did the tile floor in our kitchen+mudroom area. Nothing like being on your knees when you are 6 months pregnant.
