A delay in writing due to a much needed trip away from construction. Scott and I drove East with our baby girl, Pippet, this weekend. It was her first vacation. A dog belongs on hiking trails!
While we were gone, Ryan worked on the house. He replaced the leaky garden window in the "her" bath and put our kitchen floor in (!!!!). Things will be slow moving the next few weeks as we didn't think our house would take so long and Ryan had another job scheduled. Today the dry wall guy was here sanding away, our friend has been painting the walls as we finish rooms (he'll be by tomorrow to finish up one of the bath walls) and our tile guy is aiming to hit the bathrooms by end of the week.
In the meantime, here are some new photos of the progress:
We put plastic up all through the house the morning before we left. It helped cut down on the dry wall dust in the rooms we are storing things and in the room we are living out of. This photo is the plastic we put up to keep the sun room from getting coated since we are storing several things in there:
We almost had an oven and microwave ready for use but something wasn't lining up correctly. Another trip to Ikea in our future to make it work. Here's Ryan and Mike trying with Scott looking on:
WE HAVE A FLOOOOOR!!! It looks dark gray in this photo but it's a blue/gray in real life.
Leaky garden window is gone:
New window is IN (That's Porter paints Antique Silver on the one wall in the bathroom. The wall without drywall will get tile.):
