Welcome To Our (In Progress) Home
Well, I’m barely coming up for air, I still have a lot to do around here and at our old place. I forsee weeks and week of work! This is the part of the process that drives me nuts for so long, the constant organizing, cleaning and moving. Thankfully we did not get our POD when we thought we would, it arrives next weekend. It would have been even more mayhem if we had of received it.
Chris had to cut our counter in order for a regular sized fridge to work. The delivery guys came and then promptly told me it still wouldn’t fit. I could have cried. I just wanted the kitchen to get organized and I would stay semi-sane. I brushed it off and came back later and maneuvered it a bit and then it fit—very snuggly. Happiness!
I walked all sorts of places in public with paint on my hands, face, legs, arms, clothes. I really didn’t care.
The old man is doing well with the stairs. He had them once many years ago at our townhouse in Pembroke Pines, FL. Leo on the other hand loves them and thinks they are a playground.
Owning a little over an acre requires a riding lawnmower. This was our first big purchase right after the closing!
This is one of our extra bedrooms, the strange one. The little ‘window’ goes to the laundry room.
In the country, you burn things.
These stairs are going to be a p.i.t.a.
Chris installing bat boxes (2)…no bats yet.
The first pine tree that Chris cut down…
I was looking away right when the tree fell so I didn’t get a great action shot—bummer.
Only 8 more to go! We’re getting four taken down professionally because they are too close to structures.
And that is a quick photo summary of what went on last week.
I’ll resurface again later this week with more written thoughts.
Congrats!! Beautiful land and I’m sure you two will make it even more awesome.
what a cool place! it looks like a “forever” home – enjoy 🙂
That is a LOT of work you guys did- I’m winded just reading this post. Amazing- I’m so excited for you! And the cats, I love it! Do cats and bats coexist?
Oooh, I love your house, Misti! The stained glass windows and the wood floors — so nice!
I think painting is my least favorite thing EVER. The taping is the worst part and it just never ends. When I bought my house, it was wall to wall carpeting & old lady wallpaper in every room. That was some hard work! Little by little you’ll get everything done and put away, though. It’s hard to be patient after awhile, I know.
This is so exciting! I bet you are loving being out in the country 🙂
