Kitchen Remodel Update #2

13 Jan

Since I last updated you we have done ALOT more inside although our progress does not seem monumental We are still living out of a basement Kitchen but have our upstairs completely open. Over the last month or so we have done the following:

  • New Windows in the addition as well as in the new Foyer and in the old living room (it really makes the space look HUGE with all the windows)
  • New electrical everywhere, and I mean everywhere, I think Tyler went alittle outlet and light switch crazy. We have so many combinations of light switches I dont know if I will ever learn which turns on what.
  • Sheetrocking and Painting of the kitchen and living room (although that is not the final paint color)
  • Removal of the old crappy 1970s shag carpet in the living room (thats what I have the mask on for). The amount of Dirt under that carpet was so nasty, I am embarrassed.
  • Ordering of our cabinets and our appliances (minus the countertops, hood and microwave). The cabinets should be in within the next week or so

We are currently moving the stairs which you will see as the big open hole. Tyler decided to move the steps since we needed to redo the steps. The steps to the basement were really steep and really small, often our dog would take a tumble going down too fast.

Living in a construction zone is not fun. Currently our back bedroom is STUFFED with all the things from the living room. Our Kitchen is still downstairs in the basement and we have been eating alot of take out. And the Last two days, I have been using a ladder to get to the basement! My house is constantly in a haze of dust, I have gone through about three vacum filters and I cannot tell you how many dust rags.

Saturday the steps were finished. House has been cleaned and now we are on to flooring. Should be interesting the next few days.

So that is were we are at. I think we may a new living room set, I dont know… $$$$ is flying out the door! And does anyone notice the OPKs in the background of the mask photo? OH when does TTC ever really end!

      We feel that way about finding curtains. We can handle the big stuff but curtains, nope
