Meet the New House

During our Real Estate search and rescue mission we were referring to this property as ‘The Poop and Pee House’ for what I thought were obvious reasons until my friend Karen said, “Oh no, does it smell like poop and pee?”  Now that it’s ours and I’m kind of in love with it, I feel it deserves a better name than The Poop and Pee House.  Yellow Submarine?  Mellow Yellow? (except there is nothing mellow about that color) Project Sunshine?

Indeed a paint job is in her future, though not until next summer, but I think this color will be forever burned into this house and our minds.  Also because there is over spray on the foundations.  Thanks for that.

The living room.  There are hardwoods under everything and we’re planning on putting tongue and groove on that sweet vaulted ceiling.  Fireplace will eventually get refaced.

Kitchen.  Everything must go!  The hardwoods aren’t in this room, so they will need to be added, new cabinets, big 6 foot picture window, new appliances and all new pretty fixtures.  Can’t wait for this room to be done.  I’m going in a different direction on this house so I’m nervous and excited to see how it’s going to turn out.

Bathroom.  Again, everything. must. go.




All these rooms are phase one of the remodel.  We’ll get to the basement, 800 square feet of unfinished space and the yard at a later date.  I think we have enough to work with here.







About The Neuzel Project

Neuzel is the combination of Neuman and Benzel. Now that Casey and I have been married for 3 years, we could probably be the Neuman Project, but I still love the time we were the Neuzels so it will remain.
