So. We still have a long way to go.
But our little house is coming along.
And by coming along, I mean it is
no longer a daily battle zone of
sheet rock, paint cans, and tools.
Our home sweet home
is still in some need of some TLC.
But, we've been able to (finally) take a breath of relief
and slow down the remodels.
We had no idea what we were in for when we
signed the dotted line.
Don't get me wrong.
Things could have been much worse.
But from the moment we moved in,
we had one thing after another break/leak/destroy.
So we had our work cut out for us.
We started out thinking we would simply
repaint all the rooms.
Well, we quickly had a full demolition going
on in 2 bathrooms, the living room, and the basement.
We were not planning on re-doing our
little half-bath off the master bedroom.
At least not right away.
But, a major water leak had a different idea.
So. Mr. Ruby became handy very quickly.
He gutted, ripped up flooring and rotted sub-flooring.
And basically installed a new bathroom
while I was out of town one weekend.
I'm pretty proud of him.
We thought we'd be in this bathroom awhile before re-doing. So, I tried to make it work by buying cheerful towels to match the cheerful sink. *cheerful = 1959
Uh-oh. A little more than we planned for. Rotted Floors.
