Well, we have been getting a lot done, in spite of getting waylaid yesterday.
We found wood flooring in stock in town, and Shane is installing that today.
All cabinetry is built and all the interior trim and cabinetry is clear-coated / sealed.
The shower surround and our bathroom sink is installed:
We were thinking of galvanized sheet metal, but Shane found this great sheet aluminum in stock in town and it looks beautiful, like stainless steel. The white porcelain sink is for brushing teeth, washing face, etc. The shower will have a faucet that can turn on the shower or the sink.
Shane built the drawers and doors for our kitchen cabinetry: (blurry photo, but you get the idea.)
We installed and painted the storage loft divider between the bedroom and the living room / kitchen:
Shane also got the heater / furnace installed. Visible in the photo above and this photo:
Oh yes, look closely in the picture above. Through the window…. See that word on the wall? It says: “The Royal Bitch Parks Here.” Haha. That’s the better half of the trucking company we’re renting the shop from. She’s really awesome and we love talking with her and her husband and the sign doesn’t really apply. In my opinion…
What else: foam must have gold in it, they want $60 / yard for it. So, having to re-think the upholstery for the couch. The lighting is also hitting some glitches with products being available in town. (wouldn’t recommend making your own lighting.)
Here’s our to do list for the week:
- Install wood flooring
- Finish Plumbing
- Finish Electrical: install lighting
- Couch cushions
- Install shower rod and closet rod
- Make curtain for closet, buy curtain for shower
- Finish exterior odds and ends
- Pack up the stuff we want from our current house and move it into storage
- Find storage unit
- Give away / sell the stuff we don’t want
- Drive house!
- Move onto our new piece of land / rental property
I’m sure I’m forgetting something too! Ack. Just keep moving.
We’re almost finished!
take care everyone,
