An update on the house. . .

Well, progress is being made upstairs at the house, slowly but surely. And pictures of drywall and primer and unfinished floors aren't all that exciting, so I'll wait till you can see a little more to show pictures. But we do have ceilings and walls and doors and cabinets and hard wood floors by now. This week floors are being finished and then left alone for three days that noone can walk on them while they dry/cure/set? Then the painters need to finish up. . . then the light fixtures get put in. . . then the window coverings need to go up. . . then the locks need to be changed. . . then the countertops can go in. . . and when the rest of the tile comes in for the bathroom (yours truly WAY under-ordered) the tub surround can be finished. . . then the bathroom walls can be plastered. . . then the toilet and sink can go in. . . what am I missing? Oh, when all that is done, THEN we can move in!

The photo above is of one of the doors downstairs. . . one of the only surfaces in the house we did not repaint or refinish or redo. I couldn't! I fell in love with these old green doors and the beautiful old escutcheons and knobs.

I wouldn't change that door one bit either... I love it! It's really too bad TLC or HGTV hasn't been following this remodel... I'm sure it would have been a hit!

I cannot wait to see this finished house, especially after seeing the masterpiece you made of your condo. And those bumpers! Really? In a rush?! From scratch?! You are so talented Jul, every thing you touch is art. HOW CAN ONE PERSON BE SO TALENTED??? Love you!
