The Ranch is Rockin'

Back in July my parent's house had a fire. Lightening struck while they were away. And although the neighbors were able to call the fire department in time, and they were able to contain the fire; the whole upstairs had to be gutted.

So the past few months my parents have been working hard to get the house ready to move back into. But while they were at it, they decided to some major upgrades. First being the flooring. We ALWAYS had carpet in both houses my parents built. I really am not a huge carpet fan, but my mom loves the stuff. So to my complete shock my mom opted to just do carpeting only in the sunken living room and her bedroom! The rest is this beautiful hardwood that her and my dad and a friend of theirs installed.

The house also has a new fireplace stone wall:

New counter tops:


And in the basement to keep with the whole western theme, my parent's refurbished barn wood from their neighbor Earl's 100 year old barn.

They have worked so hard to get the house finished by the holidays. Next week they will move in, just in time for Thanksgiving. House fires are never fun, but as my mom said as me, my mom and dad and brother were driving together, "I have everything I need right here in this car."

hey, when I met you and picked you up in my lil white car and whisked you away to NH, weren't they just building your parent's house? or is my memory really failing me?
