Staying balanced and living our lives while trying to pretty much overhaul an entire house is not easy and has completely thrown off our ideal schedule, but I’m not complaining. We could be further along on the house, but we would be completely miserable. For example, we had originally planned to do nothing but electrical work and drywall yesterday, but instead we had a much-needed date with my parents (and sushi) that made my week. And last week was total chaos at work, so I needed some breaktime.
So, that’s why I don’t update much on the house. It’d be a lot of, “We mowed the lawn” or “I swept the floor once.” And most of what we’ve been doing to the house has been preparing to make big changes by doing things like electrical work (and obviously Shawn does this). But we are moving along..
We tore down a wall! And replaced it with a beam!
We re-did the hall bathroom. It didn’t need it, but we re-painted the walls and ceiling!, got a new toilet, new mirror, and new vanity. It looks like a brand new bathroom.
We have also done lots of little things that are more behind the scenes, like Shawn has been working a lot on cleaning out the attic, fixing the crawl space, etc, and we have also been slowly working on the yard.
Currently we’re working on getting the living room drywalled, since it currently looks like this:
From there we can paint and work on the dining room and kitchen. Can’t wait…
