I really feel that God has orchestrated our move into this particular house. He keeps allowing me to see random details that prove He paved the way ahead of us. Its not that the house itself is that important, but its the potential life I hope to have in this house. I have prayed over the home we would hopefully start a family in and have been trying to bathe this house with prayer. Will you join me? Please pray for our neighbors and our involvement in this community. Pray that God will use The Leivas in this neighborhood and that God would build Alex and I up in our marriage in this house, as well as prepare us to raise our children in a God-fearing home.
Back to my renovation update....
Week 1 of renovations involved demo....and a lot of it. With this house we are replacing almost all cosmetic items on the interior, as the existing items are beyond repair.
Here are some before and after's of the demo to give some perspective:

For documenting's sake: This week we also met with a Sprinkler Repair guy to fix our 20 year old sprinkler system that had not been run in over 3 years, as well as an ADT guy. A lot of progress in one week for sure!! Those demo guys work SO FAST!!
This week demo continues and the sprinkler guy is returning today because a couple of our zones shorted out. It is going to be a fun 4 months, that is for sure!!
