Well today is the last day for the carpenter’s for awhile. In fact, they will likely on be working a half day today. All of the sheet rock is up except for the broom closet in the kitchen and the just a little bit in the garage. That should only take them about half a day.
Yesterday they finished up the office. Originally there was a window next to the closet door here. Hubby closed that in as now the basement stairs are behind this wall.
I have plans for this little closet. It’s going to house our quilt book, “Country Girl Modern”, patterns and mailing envelopes….it will be mailing central. I’ll be having Hubby build some shelving for in there. It’s not huge but for now, it will work.
My job last night we cleaning….I broom and I became close friends. With my mood lately, it’s more like my vehicle than an actual broom. Yes…I admit to being a little crabby lately.
While the carpenters were working on the sheet rock we had an electrician do more wiring in the basement and we now have functioning lights in the garage and the basement. The plumbers stopped by and we have a toilet for the bathroom basement too. We did find out that one of the toilets that was originally in the house that we planned to reuse in the basement is not able to be reused so I will be making a run to Home Depot to get a new one…along with other things..dare I hope I am getting towards the end of these Home Depot/Menards/Lowes trips?!?!
With the installation of the toilet that means we can get rid of the porta potty. Ya HOO!! No girl likes a porta potty sitting on her lawn, including me!
On Monday we are expecting the dry wall guy to come and word from him is that he thinks it will take him just under two weeks to do all the work he needs to do… Loosely translated, I’ll be getting paint as my Christmas present present, as will Hubby, and I’ll be painting the weekend after Christmas (I hope)…any volunteers to help?!! After that, all bets are off as to when we’ll move.
Trust me, the first room I am painting is the kitchen so the cupboards can get put in. Then a bathroom so we can have the bathroom fixtures can be installed and then our bedroom. Once that’s done, I’ll be moving and taking boxes with in each and every time I go to to the house…and full scale moving is going to happen shortly after that. I don’t care if nothing else is finished. My patience are finished.
We’ll still have work to do in the house but then we’ll only be juggling one house. At this point that will be a HUGE relief!! I can sweep some dust or live with a few boxes easily enough. I’m just so tired of the back and forth and having two house that need attention.
