This week is a little light on the happenings, but don’t worry, I won’t leave you wondering what those few happenings were!
First of all, the drywallers were quite busy this week and got virtually all the drywall in the entire house hung, which means we can really start to feel what our house is going to be like. You get so used to stud walls and everything being open that it’s hard to really imagine what the house is going to be like when it’s actually complete. Well, with drywall, we really can kind of tell. And you guys, it’s awesome.
It’s also hard to show in photos, so bear with me as you look at a few of these.
Mark the Magnificent finished up the electrical this past week, so we can like, have lights and stuff pretty soon. It’s rather exciting. Also, Tom and his crew got the back porch started for the back entry door.
The main other thing that happened this past week was our work redoing the cabinet that was in the kitchen of the original house and is going to go into the laundry room of the new house. We start sanding on it last weekend and spent some time this past week and weekend sanding some more, working on the structure (we had to cut off just a bit here and there to make it fit), and then, most excitingly, got to get a couple coats of paint on it! Yes, it’s teal (actually, the color is Behr Bubble Turquoise). And yes, I love it. It will be a giant teal beauty that I will grin at and pet.
I keep wanting to do a sort of “before” and “now” pictures of the project, but it turns out my ability to take photos from similar vantage points throughout this process is nonexistent. Which makes side-by-side comparison really difficult. Luckily, Cat took the photos of the house before we started, so we’ll definitely be able to do “befores” and “afters” from those… 🙂
