not literally, but it's like it's new. the interior walls have been primed and painted. the radiators have been stripped, primed and painted to gorgeous pewter-toned glory. new level subfloors have been installed and maple hardwood laid over them. the space is now light, bright, solid, and quiet. no more squeaks and shudders. it's gorgeous.
i haven't taken any real after pictures, just a few shots of zuzu in the chair we found along beechwood boulevard and reupholstered, now at home in the second-floor bay window (living room). this beautiful view is mine from the sofa (we've ordered a new one of those, too, scheduled for delivery the first week in march).
zuzu is chilling. jack-jack, on the other hand, is walking around the house pointing out all the things that have changed. this is his job as supervisor, and he takes it very seriously.
