Bits and Pieces
We aren't unlike all of you in that we have periods of our lives that get VERY busy. Right now we seem to be smack dab in the middle of a busy spell. You see, when we purchased our house, we knew it needed a complete remodel. Every wall had to have new drywall, texture and paint. All new windows and doors. Every single piece of trim had to be replaced, as well as all of the floor coverings. The kitchen had to have new appliances, cabinets and counter tops since they were barely functioning and sanitary the way they were. We put in a wood stove and took out the really expensive oil furnace. We added a deck and re-built the porch. We completely tore down the old bathroom and a really strange room that had no entrance except from the outside of the house. We turned these into a new bathroom and a small bedroom/office/schoolroom. Some of these projects are still in the works some are completed and some we have yet to start.
The good news is this: we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. If we work really hard, spend every extra minute that we have working on the house we just might, MAYBE, have all the interior work finished before summer gets here.
We won't know what to do with ourselves if we don't have the house to work on!
Here are a few shots from around my house today.
This tree is going to be loaded with blooms this spring!
We've had a dusting of snow the last few days. It's pretty but it's C-O-L-D out there this morning.
Man tracks! (and bird tracks too!)
My living room has turned into a paint booth. Pair of closet doors I need to prime today, we primed the other set last night.
Room in progress. By this weekend it will be COMPLETE! YAY!!!!
