House Update - The Drywall Edition

Almost eight years ago a guy named Aaron married a girl named Dana.  A few years later, the guy risked his life, his fortune and his sacred honor to buy the girl a backyard she really liked, that came with a fixer-upper she made plans for.  Now THAT is true love.
Here is that guy, working like a madman to make his house a better home.  In this picture he is working on the revamped linen closet.
I know these following pictures aren't the greatest, but you can probably figure out some of the changes we have made.  Things are really starting to take shape.  This is the view walking in the front door.  It used to be the door to our bedroom, but now it is a strategically placed coat closet.  Imagine that - a coat closet near the door!
Here is the living room, with the wall that was moved.  The wall used to sit on the line that the broom is pointing at.
This is the new door to the master bedroom, and at the back is the door to the future master bath.  That bathroom has been non-functional since we bought the house, and the entrance was from the kitchen.
Another shot of the bedroom, this time with the closet door in the background.  That closet is the old "hallway" to the bathroom.  This was Aaron's idea and a fantastic use of wasted space.
And another of Aaron's cool ideas - a pocket door that closes off the kids' bedrooms from the living room.  It will be really nice when we have company after bedtime.
Every day brings us closer and closer to the part of the project that I get to help with: PAINTING!
Stay tuned.....
