Today was one of the good days- we finished the trim on the windows.
We cleaned out the back room and brought the slab roller home and set it up.
We finished the lights in the laundry room. ( thanks Anna- we used our Lowe's gift cards to buy the lights)
And we put two lights above the sink in the kitchen.
I might show you those later.
Back a few years ago I decided to finally build a real kitchen on the house.
We live in a house built in 1959 as a "guest" home for my grandparents. It was built as a one bedroom with an open floor plan. Downstairs a bed and bath living room/kitchen and porch.
Well- after my grandfather moved in he never built the "other" house my grandmother wanted. The one with the large county kitchen.
So as we were growing up we spent all our summers here on the farm.
My grandfather added on to the house putting two bedroom, a bath and a 1/2 basement in.
We have spent the better part of our lives here making it into a house.
As Mark would tell you, it seems to have been a house built by a "committee." We have found many strange things about the building of the house. Such as molding which goes through the closets- sheet rock which was never taped or muddied- and don't get me started on the tiny bathrooms and oil base paint-
Anyway, we built a kitchen on to the house.
Our plan this summer was to finish most of the unfinished kitchen.
Not a big list, but one we had to put off due to the studio fire.
So hanging some lights this week made us both cheery.
I keep walking around the studio today saying, "are you sure we are done?" "Is there something we have forgotten to do?"
"Can we really move back tomorrow?"
Pinch me I'm dreaming!
