The wall came down!
The cabinets went up!
The sheetrock is partially in . . .
And now we wait.
We are really seeing the progress now. It’s fun to watch all this come together and actually be able to see what the room will look like. This week will be pretty slow for the work because of the Thanksgiving holiday, but then the next week will really take off. James is going to bring my countertops, tile will be going on the walls in my kitchen, sheetrocking and carpet people coming to give the bid, etc. Very busy and fun.
Here is what I am doing for my color scheme. . .
The border goes in my kitchen, the little swatch is the countertops (Cotta Stone).The kitchen will be painted “Latte” and the addition will be a lighter shade of that. That’s the carpet sample, too.
I will be so glad to have all this done. I can’t believe people actually do all this with a whole house!! It’s been hard enough with just two rooms. The decisions seem to get harder and harder or maybe we are just tired of making decisions.
While I am very thankful to have all this done, it will be nice to have the house back to myself and the kids. No more men working in my house, traipsing up and down the stairs, banging and sawing during naptime and trying to keep the kids out of their way and off their ladders.
Today even though Mom was feeling pretty bad from her chemo, she drug herself over to see the progress and hold Evely for a minute. She just had a treatment on Wednesday and is still pretty hung over, tired, no appetite. . .the usual it seems from chemo. Each day she will get a little perkier. I hope that she is feeling really well for Thanksgiving!
