Renovation 1

I don't have the energy for a lot of verbiage, but here's a peek at the "boring" half of our renovation. 

In order to enlarge the master bathroom without getting into a major nightmare, we moved the closets to the opposite side of the room. In the "start" photo, you can see the relatively shallow dormer window and how the slope of the front wall truncates. We knocked out all of that space and now have what was formerly "dead space" available for the interior of our closets. I encourage you to click through the links below the mosaic, as I've put some descriptions on all the Flickr photos.

Oh yeah, for my Hurricane Knitter friends who encouraged me to go with some color on the walls?

THANK YOU!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!

I thought Id check your blog out since Ravelry said we were "neighbors" with the same pattern tastes. I too learned knitting a long time ago, picked it up last year and am a complete addict now. Good luck with the renovations - home project have a tendency to turn out differently than expected but yours seem to be going well!

It looks great! It's definitely worth all the aggravation.
Hope the hubster is feeling better and you have gotten some sleep.
