Renovation

For three days I've been taking out carpet and wallpaper, priming, painting, sanding, laying flooring, and more painting.  All for Henry's gift on Christmas day.  The work is not yet finished, 
but I thought that I could post a few "before" photos. 

This is the dollhouse my dad made for me for Christmas when I was a child.  He decorated it with carpet samples and wallpaper scraps that matched my childhood home.

The house was designed with 4 large doors that opened up--two in the front and two in the back.   
The doors are held shut with magnets.

The attic is under one side of the roof.

Stay tuned for the new and improved house!  
I can't wait to see the look on Henry's face on Christmas morning.

What a labour of love that was, the first time around -- and now, once again. I hope Henry has great fun with it and that you all have a peaceful holiday.
