So, we may have missed the renovation progress report last week. Can we blame the holidays?
The good news is Ryan is IN THE HOUSE. Can I get a ‘what, what?’
That means that reno is back in action. Can I get a ‘what, what?’
To bring us up to speed, here’s the new glass in the door from week 19.
And, the holes in the wall from insulation in week 18.
The holes make me a little sad because it’s going to be a lot of work to get them all fixed up. Oh well, it’s good to have an insulated home.
Despite the holidays, Ryan has been working hard on the house. We have the week off work, so he’s making the most of it. He’s working to get all the walls boxed in and ready to finish.
Like in the area in the extra bedroom where the ductwork runs to the attic.
And the pantry. Having a pantry makes me giddy and excited. It has a light, people. I HAVE A PANTRY WITH A LIGHT!
The kitchen really is coming along nicely.
Ryan’s also working on boxing in the area by the fireplace, which will include a built-in bookcase spanning the wall. (Check out Sara’s wall for one of my inspirations.) Be still my heart.
He’s also finished wiring the lighting in the upstairs bathroom.
(That is the vanity we’ll use. But, it will have a new counter and will be in a different spot. It’s just hanging out there for the time being.)
What do you think of the floor? Kind of construction chic?
Do you spot that overhead light? That’s my precious little baby from our Minnesota jaunt to Gilded Salvage.
It’s so shiny and beautiful. When it was hung, I may have sung “Hey, lighty, you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow my mind. HEY LIGHTY! Yeah, yeah. HEY LIGHTY! WOO!” Over. And over. With a little dance action.
Now we’re just waiting on these little beauties to hang on the wall. *Swoon*
I think I’ve decided on this wall-mount medicine cabinet.
For today. Ask me tomorrow and it could have changed. I change my mind up until the moment I hit complete transaction. Then, it’s over.
So, that’s this week. We’re rollin’… Ryan hoping to have the upstairs bedroom ready to paint this weekend. I’m getting my paintbrush ready. Hopefully I still remember how to do it. I think it’s kind of like riding a bike.
House list is updated.
