House, house, house...

Tuesday, January 3, 2012

I hope everyone had a lovely New Years. We spent ours in our new house. We painted until 10 or 11, then had a champagne toast at midnight and promptly passed out from exhaustion.

We got the keys on Wednesday around noon. My mom and I spent that day cleaning and scrubbing, the house was pretty dirty. Thursday we sanded cupboards, changed light fixtures, and painted trim. Friday the cupboards got painted, and the kitchen walls got their first coat. Saturday we finished the kitchen and started painting the bathroom. Sunday we cut out a hole in the cabinets for the dishwasher, made an end cabinet, and prepped the kitchen and foyer floors for new flooring. Monday we laid new floor, painted the living room & dining room, tiled the bathroom, painted ceilings, removed old knob and tube wiring, and added plumbing for the dishwasher. Today, back to work.

I feel so incredibly lucky to have had many family members volunteer their time to do wiring, flooring, sanding, painting... we wouldn't have been able to do half of the work with out them. Everything looks so awesome in the house. We've made some pretty cool improvements.

Tonight we are off to dinner with the in-laws, and tomorrow our appliances are being delivered. I still have hardly packed a thing, and I have 3 orders to complete still! Time is ticking, and I can't wait to be relaxing in my new house! <3
