Today is the day when things are starting to really come together. There was a flurry of activity going on at the house. Counter-top installers, soffit going up on the back porch, plumbers moving the two claw-foot tubs into place and the stairs are looking better and better.
What a fantastic way to end the year. Not moved in, but darn near close. Tomorrow the heating contractor is coming out to check the heat pumps and see what is making the bills so high. Then on Monday the flooring contractor will be coming and putting in the laminate flooring in the utility room and small 1/2 bath and finish up the master shower. Plumbers and electricians will be in after that to install the water heater, cook top, oven, sinks and tubs and a bunch of other stuff.
How am I going to spend my New Years Day? I will be staining stairs. Now that aught to be a sight. Lets hope I remember some of the stuff I learned watching This Old House, Norm Abrams, and various other DIY shows. Plus if I reach way back to the late 70’s when I worked in a cabinet shop, I might remember a thing or two from then.
Now for some pictures.
Now for the baths. Oh, and the faucets and chrome lines were just delivered by the UPS guy today. Wahoo!!!!
This last picture is just for Jodi, my sweet co-worker that will be viewing this tomorrow. My Christmas cactus still lives 🙂
More blog to come as this project gets closer and closer to completion. I will have a hard time sleeping tonight.
Annie, the excited stair stainer 🙂
