Happy Anniversary to the Duck!

Three years ago today i signed the paperwork to buy the Duck. 

A lot has happened in those 3 years. We've gone from this:

To this...with a little paint and taking out those bushes. found a planter bed behind the bushes. still want to take out those steps and built a small circular porch there. need some serious grass therapy, too.

This was the original dining room...with an old fashioned pass through and lots of paneling.

Pass through now gone.. made doorway instead. and closed up other doorway
And have barn wood on the walls....painted foxfire. 

Old kitchen with cabinets

Kitchen now all gutted....drywall on walls.

Old pantry cabinets

Now painted pink. paneling is off the walls. Walls in here will be metal used for roofs.

Almost all the new windows are in. New doors are all in. All insulated. New plumbing. New electric. Drywall on ceilings and walls. 

The laundry room has been painted orange. There is an old wooden ironing board hung on the wall to use for pinning things. I have some old irons on shelves (more since this pic). 

A piece of barn wood furniture in here with a quilt hung behind the glass. brown glass bottles hold clothespins, soaps, pins, etc. This room will have corrugated tin on the walls also. 

It has certainly been fun.....demolition is pretty cool to me. hahahaha    and finding things in thrift stores to decorate with is fun, too. 

The Duck will rest now until Spring.....when prettying-up mayhem will commence. there will be tape and mud on drywall......paint on walls....ceiling lights and fans hung. bathroom put together. maybe even some yard work. i envision flower beds and trellises and things. i gotta rest up. hahahahah

Happy Anniversary Duck
