A Progress Report

As promised, I'm sharing just a few updated pictures on the progress of the house. We've come along way since I last posted (sorry for the lag time!). Life is a zoo right now as we are planning on moving out this Saturday from the carriage house, staying with friends for a week so we can continue to paint, etc. and then have the official move next weekend. I'm not sure if I know what's up from down these days or if my shoes match before I walk out the door. If you see me on the street wearing my shirt inside out - you'll know why, but be a dear and tell me. I also fell through the dining room floor this weekend and my foot created a nice big hole in our new dry walled basement ceiling, but I guess you can't order up a perfect renovation! Thankfully, I came away with just a few scratches and gnarly bruises.

For the past two weekends/weeks we've been painting away! We finished all the walls and ceilings in the hallway, living room and dining room. Next will be the baseboards.

We also had the tile laid for the front entry. I just love it!

Here's a shot of the fireplace in all it's glory. We released it from it's imprisonment from plaster. I feel it is atrocious to hide such a wonderful element like this!

Last, we are painting the window trims on the main floor glossy black for a punch. It's like a little punctuation mark to the space!

We are having the original hardwoods stained this week and hardwood flooring put in the kitchen. I can't wait to see how they will transform the space.
