I can hardly believe we have been in the house for five and a half years! We’ve finally reached a good (ahem, healthy) place with our project load.
While our to-do list is still about seven pages long (Yes, really. We wrote one out.) for the first time we have been able to really step away from projects. We knew with the arrival of our daughter last fall that the amount of time for projects was about to take a significant cut, so we tried to get as much as we could finished last summer.
It’s CRAZY that we’ve been working on this house for over three years now! It only seems like yesterday that we got the keys to the house – and immediately tore out the built-in bench in the old sunroom, and starting ripping down the wallpaper in the dining room. Every few months, when certain projects get too overwhelming to even think about, I look back at the photos I took when we first bought the house and I realize just how much we’ve gotten done.
When we gutted and renovated our upstairs bathroom, we ended up reconfiguring two closets and moving a wall. The other room affected by our bathroom renovations was our smallest guestroom.
