A house Update

F-i-n-a-l-l-y . . . . . . . . .

We have officially finished one room!
Well, aside from putting in a new ceiling fan and replacing the door to the laundry room and touching up the paint where we attached the moulding……. but those things will come later. Right now we are happy to have one room that is beautifully peaceful to be in. New flooring, new paint, 2 new outside doors, new light switches, electrical outlets and new moulding.
PHEW!!
A whole lot of hard work and I must admit mostly done by Joe. A lot of this stuff is mostly a one person job…… so I stood back and made the food and cleaned up sawdust and kept the littles occupied πŸ™‚ You’ve know idea how intriguing these tools in the house are to the wee one. Table saws and drills and hammers. He loves them all.
But now, now the den is complete. A cozy spot for the family to relax. We (aka the evil parents) have declared this space a toy free zone! Sounds awful, I know, but since the living room will house the instruments and all their games and crafting supplies, we decided we wanted this space for us…… but they are of course welcome to be in the grown up room. It’s just a read a book and sit and laugh and relax type of room. After a month of working on it, we certainly enjoy sitting on the couch with a glass of wine and finally listening to music! We’ve had the stereo system safely stored away from the whirling clouds of sawdust….. can you imagine all this work done with no music!?! We are a family with no television, so being without music is a sort of cruel torture to us!
But, on with the photos. Firstly, two before photos of the den……..

  1. Oooh, looks so cozy and bright and cheery. Congratulations! We went through the same thing starting two years ago and we are still getting the little things finished up. But I know how great it feels to get a room done that you can actually BE in. Hang in there!

  2. Sid reminds me of Toby πŸ™‚ Especially now that he is older and more mellow…… he is such a sweet boy and always at my heels or under my feet…. and try as I might, I cannot keep that dog from sleeping at the foot of my bed πŸ™‚
