So apparently the gestation period for a massive home remodel is roughly the same as a human baby. #themoreyouknow
So let’s talk about this week. It’s been a really good one, you guys. So strap in, because this is gonna be lengthy.
First of all, we found some remnants of our furry friend Rachel. Luckily I do not mean poop. I just mean some paw prints, which were surprisingly high up on the wall in the garage. She had mad hops, apparently.
We got our KitchenAid counter-depth refrigerator delivered and set in place. She is giving us some fits in actually leveling and fitting in the space appropriately, so she’s a work in progress. Also, apparently she is a she.
Brad got our little “mud room” bench all installed, and I love it! We call it a mud room, but it’s literally a cubby hole type thing in the hallway. Whatever. It counts.
The built-ins in the living room are fully set and shelved and crown molding-ed up. I can’t wait to start filling them with all the things!
Mark & Aaron got some of the pretty pretty vanity lights up in the master bathroom. They are hard to appreciate in photos, so you will just have to come see them in person because they’re amazing.
The clawfoot tub also got reassembled and put in place in the master bathroom. Eeeek! Thanks to Mary Kay & Mark for coming over to help us get that thing wrassled into place.
We got the original built-in moved back into the house. It’s been living down in Grandma’s garage since we started, and now it’s back into its home!! Reminder: this was in the original dining room of the house, which is now the entryway. But we [read: Brad & Tom] built in a niche for it in the new dining room (which is what was the kitchen) and it fits perfectly!!
Interior doors are finished and hung back in place. Handles should go on this week sometime, yay! And the troll door is even up!
Mark got the big beautiful ceiling fan up in the living room, along with other electrical-y stuff. And he/Aaron – with a small assist from Gina – got some other lights up. You guys, we are getting to start hanging the “pretty” lights. This means we are getting close!!
Brad got almost all of the closet shelving up. The only room left is the master closet…and that’s only left because Aaron and Gina are very indecisive and haven’t actually decided what to do in there. Anyone have closet tips???
And that about wraps up this week of things. There are still a number of things to finish up, but that list is dwindling. We also had a brilliant idea to a mass amount of outdoor clean-up work. On Saturday. When it was like 95 degrees. Sorry, Dad! But thanks for your help!! 🙂
