Looking ahead to this week:
- Meeting with tile guy to finalize bath layout. He should start Friday.
- Plumber doing basement piping, outdoor fixtures, and finishing downstairs bath so I can get rid of the outhouse - Monday and Tuesday.
- Carpenter coming to do staircases and loft railing - Tuesday through Friday.
- I should be able to finish the downstairs window trim and get ready for flooring starting as soon as the stairs are in.
|With dad's help we finished laying the decking for the front porch in 2 days.|
|But the good news is that after I put this mess back together everything worked perfectly! It helped that dad was there to run up and down the stairs 50 times to keep flipping the breaker as we tested each spot.|
|Strategically placing the trim packages throughout the house.|
|A completed window. Now it just needs some wood putty, a quick sand, and a couple coats of paint.|
|Trim detail at the top of each header. Still torn on whether to take the time to include it on every window/door in the house, or just the ones in the "fancy" rooms.|
|Easter egg hunt today was much more fun than working on the house.|
|Puppa's color-coded egg system: an ingenious way to avoid sibling fights.|
|Gramma, Puppa, cousins from Virginia, and the girls.|
|After a week in work clothes I felt a little weird dressed in a suit all day. And a little older than I felt 10 months ago...|
