This blog is to journal about the remodel/addition of our Hazelwood House. We are adding 1300 square feet of glorious living space which we desperately need.


This is our house- This picture was taken just minutes before this happened...





The garage is gone and we are underway! When the guys started ripping into the garage I seriously thought I was going to throw up- We are so excited to get the remodel/addition done but it is a huge undertaking with a family of seven still trying to live here as we go. Things are going to be crazy for the next few months for sure.




The one lone semi wall is our current electrical panel so it stays put until we are ready to wire the new part of the house.

This is the back of the house, the porch is gone and they have actually begun to dig the footing and plumbing trenches- if you look close you will see our first accident- a ladder through the kitchen window which is now duct taped- good thing it is coming out in a couple months!

Hey Janalee!
Super fun for you!! Being a mom in the middle of a remodel doesn't sound all that fun..but I'm sure you will be great at it!!! And I am positive the benefits will out-weigh the pain in the neck that the process will create!! Good Luck!!!

I can't wait to follow along. I love demolition (so long as it's not my house!)

I'm a little disappointed you didn't use a fashion color of duct tape. Bright pink woulda been fab and Maya would have had a new favorite window!

What a fun way to watch you remodel. I look forward to peaking on your big, huge mess! Your backyard already looks great! You need to show everyone pictures of the shed you might be moving into....you poor transient sista!

ho-ly, mo-ly! I can't wait to see it... I love you more than anything Jan!

My mom was talking the other day and said, "Haley, you are just like Janalee, you are as sweet as a pea, but you fight with your older sister's all the time."
I was like, "Hooray! I'm a Janalee!"

Love you,
Haley
