I slept 7.05 hours, checked in to 7 places, took 27 photos, wrote 2 microblogs, walked 2.98 miles, and weighed 179.9 pounds. I was in Ankeny and Des Moines, Iowa.

Before: The powder room toilet... with carpeted floors

The main entryway (before). This awkward use of space (where the closet and vanity are) was reworked to expand our master bathroom.

10:27 am

The living room, with fantastic bi-fold doors into a desk area.

10:27 am

Facing the kitchen from the living room with a gigantic (soon to be demolished) fireplace in between.

10:27 am

The mud room / laundry room will soon have lockers and cubbies in place of the laundry machines.

10:28 am

The formal dining room before we moved in. It would later become our office.

Looking toward the living room and entryway from the kitchen.

10:29 am

The add-on four-seasons porch / office... which will become our new dining room.

The basement workshop will be cleaned up a bit... but will likely remain a workshop.

10:33 am

The downstairs guest bathroom... which was bigger than the master bathroom before we remodeled it.

10:33 am

I somehow need to figure out how to fit a bar, theater, and foosball table into this rec room

10:34 am

A terrible use of storage space.

10:34 am

The "shed" space below the four seasons porch and deck. Notice the 3 different sets of posts to hold up the room above it.

10:35 am

Another shot of the "shed" space below the deck and four-seasons porch...

10:36 am

The casual dining room/kitchen will become a larger kitchen with an opened up wall to the porch/new dining room.

Looking toward the living room from the kitchen
