Well we've moved in to the house. Here's the current situation:
Yeah, it's a disaster. But I suppose that is to be expected. What we didn't expect however, is to find about a thousand things we wanted to do to the house on top of other thousand things we knew we would want to do before we moved in. For example: new carpet. If we had known we wanted that done we would have scheduled it for the day we moved in. But we didn't. So now we don't want to get too "set up" because we'll have to move everything in a couple of weeks when the carpet is installed.
Another thing. We knew we would be doing a lot of painting, but now we're painting everything. As in, the walls, the trim and the closets. Oh the closets. Here is a picture of one of the shelves in the guest room closet:
And that, my friends, is why I had to paint the entirety of every closet in the house. Because... ew.
So needless to say the painting is taking quite a bit longer than we planned. But I am so thankful to have this house, it really is incredible. We feel so very blessed.
More to come!
