"the south wing"

we've officially "broken ground" on our master remodel. i want to start by posting pics of what we're working with!

up until yesterday, we had a "wing" of our house that was closed up. {imagine the west wing from beauty and the beast, but without the magical rose.}

down this hallway, you'll find a closet (which we are using for tools/supplies), two bedrooms, and a full bathroom. {okay, so it's nothing like the beast's west wing. except for the fact that it's scary.}

inside door #1:

inside door #2:

and perhaps scariest of all (are you ready?), door #3:

yikes! what a bathroom. so that's where we stand. consider this the "before."

we replaced all the windows in these rooms, and did some patching where we moved walls around for the kitchen (which is next to one of the bedrooms). we tore up carpet in the front bedroom. other than that, though, these rooms have been pretty much untouched.

it was my father-in-law's idea to make this area of the house the master suite. we started the labor yesterday. i'll upload the tentative floorplan and place it next to the current one to show what we'll do.

enjoy the weekend! we'll be resting today. God gave us a Sabbath for our good.

what lovely warm weather we've been having here in Minnesota. the turn of the season is such a sweet remind of God's faithfulness. a friend shared this verse with me a few weeks ago:

Hosea 6: 3
Let us know; let us press on to know the Lord;
his going out is sure as the dawn;
he will come to us as the showers,
as the spring rains that water the earth.”
