Well our update now is that we are sleeping in the house and, of last night, able to eat in the house. I took back the kitchen although there is the claw foot tub still sitting in there...like the old days when folks would bath in their kitchens. Should give it a try. We hope to sell it this weekend although there is the thought in our heads for a 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' style tub sofa out of it. We still need the garage for entertainment such as TV and a safe place for daycare kids to roam.
Our Contractor believes that next week will be complete everything week, but I'm not so sure about that. The siding is 80% up, trim still needs to be done on the outside and in garage, remaining shingles need to go up and the stairs and banister need completion. Mind you they work quickly and efficiently so maybe he can pull it off.
As I said before, I don't want to give away too much about each room just yet so here are some photos from along the way these last two weeks.
Hmmm, wonder what this is for and why is my son using it as his head?
Contents of future closet and linens, man alive!
My closet - now complete, all hung and awaiting trip to lumber yard to make a shoe shelf on top. I'm thinking though shoe storage may still be a challenge. This took me ALL of Wednesday to sort and stock.
My sister of the weekend crew did all our ironing! Those are the living room drapes.
MY craft room drapes and new dining chairs which were assembled by Lisa of the weekend crew.
View from above - oh boy do we ever need a railing - freaky stuff.
It looks SO nice in person - very grown up.
I gave the kitchen a first floor clean last night - here you can see why we use this product, it cleans up beautifully - perfect for a house full of boys. (sorry, fuzzy photo, this gal needs a new camera).
Dine and bathe anyone? Normal me would never allow a tea towel to look so messy on it's rack.
