I’m so grateful for many things regarding this new endeavor we’ve taken on… but most of all I’m thankful that I married a man who LOVES to work and does a great job at it! Our house has come a LONG way in 4 short weeks and I’m excited to share a few pictures with y’all! We’re hoping this week to line up the floor installation, counter top installation, and have the gas line run! Should be another eventful week!
Our plan is to be very near completion in 4 more weeks and hope to be in towards the middle of November! Yea! We still have a long way to go but a LOT of paint will take you a long way… oh and a new roof… which was a major investment that no one really appreciates… not even me! Oh well! I mentioned a LOT of paint… 39 gallons is our running total so far and 15 tubes of paintable caulk! I asked the guys at the paint store this morning (my 6th trip) if I could get a discount… they laughed and told me if I’d honk my horn when I got there they’d bring it all out to me… when you have 2 babies that sounds even better than a discount!
Much to my disappointment Justin rented a stripper this weekend. She sure saved him a lot of time and she works a lot harder than I would ever consider working. With her help and the selfless help of Neal and Ryan, Saturday proved to be one of the most productive days thus far. All of the tile is out (at least in kitchen and side entry), 99% of the carpet is out, the appliances are out, the counter tops are out and the kitchen sink is out! Now, if you are wondering what the stripper looked like you’ll have to check out these “before” and “4 week later” pictures. I can’t call them after because I’m hoping we still have a long way to come! 🙂
