Pima Demo/ Remodel

See the nice bulge? That's bad- its where the pipe froze and burst. One of
4 or 5 spots that we had freeze in our Pima house.  It ruined 3 rooms. Kitchen,
Laundry, and Dining Room.  Plus, an external wall had to be replaced. Everything
had to be replaced. 

Moral of the story?
 1- do pex for plumbing instead of copper
2. teach your renters (husband and wife) how to turn the water off 
They are HORRIBLE!!!

And, thanks to the first picture we ended up with several of these water spots.
This one is in the laundry room.
Which leads us to this... DEMO!!! Everything had to go.
Cabinets- they were warped and the doors were askew.
Walls had to go, window had to go.  Some of the electrical
was replaced as well.  Good thing I have "Handy Hunk."

See the theme here?  This is the pex and shark bites.

This is the front.  Since we had to redo some of the exterior walls and the old color was DRAB, we repainted the entire house.  Love the color scheme now.  Its called Verdigris (greenish grey) with a cream trim and of course a RED door.

This was the original color.  This is when we first bought this house. 
Such a cute house.  Now its extra cute in the pretty verdigris with the red door :-)
And, of course now that pretty much EVERYTHING is new inside.
