This has been an exciting few weeks at our new home! Our contractor finished the roof, gutters, soffits, and facial boards. Now the outside of our house looks brand new! Our windows are finally finished being constructed and we just picked them up today– so tomorrow the contractor will start putting them in and building windowsills. Talk about some amazing before and after shots to come!
On top of all of that our appliances we purchased on Memorial Day weekend (thanks to a huge sale) were just delivered. Now– the kitchen doesn’t even look like a kitchen right now; the floor has to be replaced, the walls aren’t ready to be painted, and the electrical hasn’t been updated yet. So we had the men place them in the dining room so that when the time came to move them we wouldn’t have to move them far. We are also going to go ahead and start using the fridge since we’ve been using one that is more suitable for a dorm room.
I’m very pleased with what I’ve seen. I can not wait to cook a meal in my new kitchen in a few weeks!
In other news the master bedroom had some major renovation mayhem happen. We tore out the old closet, and the partial wall. We needed more room for our bedroom suite with that king bed and bedside tables, and I wanted a walk-in closet! So now I will have a huge walk-in closet with a wall of shoe storage. Heck yes!
We are also considering building a closet in the nursery rather than buying two dressers. The room is already really small, but I know in a few years a closet is going to be important to a growing kid. I haven’t measured to figure out the exact figures of it yet, but I will be soon.
As for the next big projects to come, we have a few:
1. Central heat and air installation and duct work.
2. The entire kitchen, master, and some more work in the nursery.
3. Fencing in some of the back yard for our indoor westie.
4. Electrical updating.
5. Setting up my grandmas home out back. (Septic tank, running water, running electrical, etc.)
It’s a daunting list, but some of these projects can be worked on simultaneously. C is hoping to be move in ready by Labor Day. We’ve all got our fingers and toes crossed!
