Paul and I made some great progress on the house this weekend; it's really starting to come together. I finally bought two file cabinets for the office, organized the office, and while Paul was finishing the laundry hook ups - I painted the upstairs hallway. Now with the exception of the basement, the whole house is painted. And, HORRAY, the washing machine, dryer, and wash tub are together and functioning! I think we might be picking up some dry wall this week or this coming weekend too - which will be really cool. So all that's left for the laundry/storage/bathroom room is laminate & ceramic flooring, drywall, a vanity, and a little paint. After that, then it's on to the main part of the basement. We'll likely rip down the barn wood paneling, put up insulation and drywall, replace the small staircase, install laminate wood flooring, put a coat of paint on the walls, and save for new furniture. It's gonna be wicked cool. I'm so excited. I know, I know, it sounds like a lot but it really isn't that bad - we really get a kick out building too. It's really kinda fun but kinda expensive too. Oh well. It'll look good.
Before I go, I have to mention that like this blog, building and decorating and stuff - it's extremely theraputic. I'm serious it really is. I can't describe to you how good it feels to finish a big project - it's so cool.
