UPDATE ON OUR HOUSE'S RESTORATION PROCESS
Some of you have asked how things are coming where our house is concerned so I thought I'd post an update.
Our contractor is predicting that we will be able to move back into the house in about three weeks! We are so excited and I've begun a list of all the things we'll need to purchase. When you are starting from almost scratch, there are so many things you have to think about such as mops and dusters and calendars.
But in the meantime, here's what is going on:
The three downstairs bedrooms are completely done as well as the two bathrooms. The living room is almost complete. It still needs the stairs rebuilt. The dining room has been painted but the floors for the kitchen, dining room, hall, and living room are being worked on now. They will have stained concrete in a pretty tobacco color. Our contractor is presently building the kitchen cabinets. The mudroom has been floored and painted and I'm once again able to wash clothes in our new washing machine and dryer.
Upstairs there is still a good bit to be done. All the trim has just about been finished but the walls need painting, the bathroom needs a good deal of work, and the Berber carpet will have to be installed.
But all in all, what is done is look so pretty and it is going to be an amazing blessing once we move back in. If you live local, plan on coming to our HUGE housewarming/blessing party.
