Move-In Day Was a Week Ago Tomorrow.

 renovation

I suspect many a renovator say this, but I really (reallyreallyreally) thought we would make our two month timeline.  Alas, I was sorely mistaken.  It's looking now like the end of October.  I am still planning to spend Halloween in the house.  And by planning I mean, this shit's gonna happen.  For reals.

Outside

We've got a new roof, landscaping is in progress, and the pool has begun.  Shutters are removed for a new coat of color and the shed just needs paint.

 Entry

We had a bit of a texturing disaster, but I think it's all about sorted out now.  Ready for crown and paint.

Kitchen

The cabinets are mounted, doors are hung, and walls are painted.  No floors yet (looks like the 18th of October is the earliest that will happen), hardware is forthcoming, and only about half the end panels are mounted.  We still need to buy a range, microhood, and (hopefully) a new refrigerator.  (Dear Appliance People: looking for a sponsor? *wink wink*)  Also, we've chosen the countertops, but they won't be installed for another week or so.  After that we can do sink and dishwasher.  The island has become a phase 2 project.  Electrician is scheduled for Tuesday to install all the fans and fixtures.

Family Room

Paneling is primed and painted with first coat. Crown is hung and baseboards are imminent.  Flooring will be same as kitchen (and playroom), so not until late October.  I've chosen a mustard color for the bookcases and will be painting the cabinets and trim white to match the kitchen.

Living Room

This is the closest room to being done.  In fact, Wesley is putting furniture in the room right this minute, as we speak.  It's painted and carpeted and crowned and baseboarded.  Just needs one last quickie coat of paint on the crown to cover spackling and we're golden. Phew.

Playroom (Former Dining)

I'm waffling on a paint color in here.  I'm thinking green, but more subdued than our last choice since you'll be able to see it when you walk in the front door.  (I'm open to suggestions.)

Hallway

Walls and trim are painted, carpet is in.  Like the living room, we need a coat of paint on the crown and also the doors are being painted black.

Kids Rooms

Also excruciatingly close to being done.  We're hanging the crown ourselves in these rooms though, so it may be a while.  Any one want to come have a moulding party?! So fun! Heh.  Also, closet doors need paint.

Master Bedroom

Bedroom is close.  Carpet, paint and baseboards are good.  We're hanging our own crown in here too, so again, time will tell.  The bathroom needs a toilet and sinks, also a small repair on the tile because the tile guy decided not to remove the SKU stickers before installing clear glass tile.  (Brilliant, huh?)  Pocket doors and casings are going in early next week and Wesley and I will be mapping out the closet soon too.  Nothing crazy, just wire racks but I'd be lying if I didn't tell you I was totally psyched about getting a walk-in closet.  Totally psyched.

Office

Wesley is doing his own flooring in the office (I know).  We also need to paint in there.  Honestly, the office is pretty low priority for me.  Sorry, honey. Heck, I didn't even take a picture.

If you're just tuning in follow these steps: 1. the house we left, 2. the house we bought, 3. the house we destroyed 4. yard work is hard work, and this post is number 5. building it back up.

Wow, it's looking SO great! I cannot wait to see it all done. (I know you too - ha ha!)

Love that wall of cabinets in the kitchen and all the windows. Hang in there... :)

I'd let you decorate my home! And if you really kept that light in the entry hall...a little flat black spray paint would modernize that up in a heartbeat!
