Let’s get this party started!

on August 12, 2012

Now the real fun begins! Both of us, having experienced extensive renovations in the past, one would think we’d never do it again. But alas, here we are ripping up carpets, baseboards and an existing pellet stove pad.

Before:

After:

The pellet stove has been relegated to the basement, and in its a place, a lovely, quiet propane fireplace will be installed.

Randy’s son, Richard, and his girlfriend Danielle, are here from Halifax to help with the renovations.

There is carpet under carpet and this “beaut” of a carpet was uncovered in the bedrooms.

The renovations aren’t limited to just the house. As seen in this before and after picture, the old willow tree out back had to go. It had been hacked at, and was past its prime.

Before:

After:

After a hard day’s work, we sit down to a fresh haddock and shrimp dinner and toast our accomplishments!

And having had our fill of blueberries, we opt for peach cream pie instead!

Such is a typical day in Digby, Nova Scotia!

    Why is Randy always strolling with the dog, eating, or resting by the fire while everyone else is busy working ???? Nice retirement ! The food looks really great. I’ll just sit here and eat my boiled hotdog.

    When did the party ever stop ?. Through the thick and thin off it, Randy
    is perhaps the most friendlyD party positive person I know and deserves everything
