It’s starting to look like a house! (BH #62)

Josh got me drywallers for Christmas. :) I am soooo ready for this project to be over – such a huge feeling of relief washed over me when we decided that I wouldn’t have to do the drywall myself. This’ll save me at least a month of labor, I imagine, and I probably wouldn’t do it as well as the guys will. I can’t believe how fast they are – look what they’ve done in just one day!

The living room, looking out towards the water:




The old kitchen, now the TV room:



Come Monday, the plumber promises we’ll have a working faucet hooked up in the basement so that the drywall guys can do their first mudding. I can’t wait! Once all the mudding is done I can put up the doors and we’ll have actual rooms.

After that there remains:

  • bathroom tiling
  • the TV room floor
  • kitchen cabinets
  • closet doors and shelves
  • painting
  • trim, windows and baseboards and attic access
  • bathroom fixtures, toilets, towel bars, etc.
  • the fence in front, to prevent parking on the septic field
  • the driveway
  • the back porch laundry room and wooden door refinishing
  • refinishing the floors
  • hooking up some sort of filtration system to the well (we have a drinking filtration system for the kitchen sink already).
  • put up blinds
  • and undoubtedly some things I have forgotten.

And then of course we still have to actually get renters… Ugh! Every time I think the list is getting shorter, I realize how long it still is! :( Someone tell me it will be over soon!
