The Renovation Continues...

The nasty old carpet from the stairs came out today. I've been painting and there is a hint of what's to come in the right corner (of course I'm working that green into the redo! You know I am!)

Slow and steady progress. Between juggling work and kids and waterproofing contractors that had to make a return visit to fix a few things they didn't get right the first time...I won't go there. Suffice it to say, it put me two weeks behind schedule and I had to put my #itch pants on and stand my ground to get them back. I hate it when that happens.

But things are back in forward motion and I'm hoping that by this time next week there will be carpet on the floor.

I'm anxious to get things put back in place! And, I'll have some exciting news to share when I do.... !!

Stay tuned...

Demolition Continues

The last of the studs were torn out today thanks to the hard work of my eldest...and I went behind him with concrete patch filling holes. I'm SEW ready to get to the rebuilding part!! I have at least picked paint colors (still need to purchase the paint) and I found the PERFECT carpet tile. Just need to get the last bits of demolition done and prep work before the paint and carpet can begin. I also want to get an electrician in to look at moving an outlet and advising me on the possibility of changing the lighting (which has never been good).

Hubs spent the last 2 weeks in Phoenix...he missed all the jackhammering fun. Nice to have him back...he reconnected the washer and dryer today!! Thanks to 2 generous neighbors I was able to keep on top of the always big pile of stuff to be washed. But boy am I happy to be able to have the laundry room here back in business!!

The rest will start to fall back into place soon. No doubt it's going to take some time. I'm swamped with design work (a blessing to pay for this adventure since insurance didn't cover anything) which limits the time I have for my own project. But it will get done. It will get done.

I keep telling myself that...
