So much progress has been made on the house in the last couple of weeks! The hardwood floors have been refinished, Riley laid the bathroom tile, and the kitchen cabinets, appliances, and countertop have all been delivered and installed. Every bit of progress has been such an exciting step and it's all coming together just as I hoped it would, and maybe even better. Right now, every room is in need of some varying degree of paint and trim work, and these things seem to take forever! This house, with it's walls, ceilings and abundance of trim, needed a lot of paint, and we wouldn't be even close to the point we're at now without the much appreciated help of my mother in law, my parents, and my sister in law. The good news is that we're making some serious progress on that front and that the paint color choice was a success! (Whew!)
This weekend and next week we'll be focusing on more trim work and more painting, and a few more details (like finding a bathroom door), before we're finally ready to move in. The main floor won't be completely finished by move-in, but it will be close enough, and it will certainly be easier to get some work done in the evenings without having to travel back and forth from the house and apartment.
I can't wait to officially call this house "home!"
