House @ six months

Hard to believe we have been here a little over six months now. A lot of progress has been made and a fair amount of the systems have been upgraded – new plumbing, sewer, sewer main, HVAC installed, and foundation bolted.

There were also a lot of cosmetic improvements – hardwood floors added while existing ones were refinished, walls and ceilings smoothed and painted, some new appliances, some work on the bathrooms and some windows replaced.

Probably most importantly, it is feeling like home. I hate to admit the shed has not been sorted, there are still a few boxes to unpack and the alarm is still waiting to be installed,but for good or bad this is where we are six months in.

  1. Everything looks so beautiful, Maggie! You have done a fabulous job and it looks even better in person. I am astounded at your energy, but it has really paid off!

  2. Maggie, you have done more changes in six months than most people do in years! You have brought an old tired house back to life. It has been so much fun to follow your blog and see the transformation! A nice surprise to see that the owl room connects with the kitchen…didn’t expect that 🙂 I applaud you for your determination a you did an awesome job!!!

  3. Maggie, you should be an interior decorator-in your “spare” time! You have a wonderful sense of color. I especially love the purple rug with the aqua walls. I never would have thought to put those colors together but it looks amazing. What a warm, colorful, happy home you have created! The transformation in just 6 mos. is incredible. Enjoy your home sweet home!
