Here's bit of an update of what's going on.
The window installation is still going on today and the house is full of old windows (help!). We are replacing 36 windows all together, so the amount of garbage is staggering. If you've seen the picture of our garage full of garbage, now imagine that pile in our living room!
The kitchen is also still not finished, basement bathroom is getting there but not fully done.. The kid's bathroom has no vanity.. The master bathroom has Nothing, but that is the least of our worries now. But thank God we do have one fully working bathroom upstairs, even though it too may still be missing some finishing touches like the vanity mirror and back splash.
We feel overwhelmed and a little panicked..so yesterday we had some therapy..retail therapy that is. We bought some art, a chandelier, a king size bed (for lounging around with our girls on those lazy mornings that we may have had at some point and are looking forward to eventually having again), a mirrored cocktail table, and a sideboard / kitchen table (the original plan of the kitchen counter extending to the table had to be scrapped and I have been scouring the net for a table that fits both sizewise and lookwise. The one we found yesterday is nothing like the modern metal leg, white tabletop table I had planned, and is a major risk, but I loved it anyway and bought it in the spirit of 9 by Design. We shall see how it looks... I will post pictures at some point).
We are moving this week and I probably won't have time for posting anything here for a little while.
I will come up for air in a couple of weeks. Wish me luck!
