Some Before and After...

We've been doing a lot of work on the new house over the last several days and I thought a few before/after shots might be fun. We put in a new furnace and air conditioner - this is the old furnace:
and the new one:
The old air conditioner unit - the house was built in 1961 and the furnace and a/c were original:
And the new air conditioner - moved to the north side of the house to keep in shaded and to allow us to put in a deck next summer:
Most of what we have been doing the last few days is painting (and LOTS of it!!). This is one of the bedrooms before - note the glow in the dark stars on the ceiling:
And... the after (that's two coats of primer and a coat of paint to get rid of that dark blue paint!!- you can't see it in the photo, but the ceiling cleaned up very nicely and took paint well):
There's lots more to come... I'll have to take more photos once all the painter's tape is down and the rosin paper is off the floor and our furniture is in.
