Things are getting pretty exciting around the ol’ homestead, because it’s finally time to start with the fun stuff like picking out paint colors and deciding on cabinet finishes. The insulation is in, and sheet-rocking has begun. This is in the master bedroom.
My tub hole The area around the tub has been framed, and my bathtub has arrived and is currently in the basement waiting for it’s new home. It’s big. I’m excited.
The ceilings above the great room/dining room/kitchen are vaulted and cedar, which is now being installed. My heart skipped a beat when I saw them. J’adore!
Our beams are reclaimed, and obviously very old. We got the main one that spans the length of the room for $25. I’m thinking of changing our last name to the Thriftertons. Thrifty Thrifterton has a nice ring to it!
With any luck, this should be the last week I’m forced to use crappy iPhone pics. You remember how
Satan Toby broke our camera?
I got the estimate back, and am thrilled that the lens is fixable and for “only” $90 which is still much cheaper than a new lens. The bad news is that the impact from the camera hitting the floor caused the part that holds the lens onto the camera to break as well. $80 for that. But still, less than expected!
I told Toby that considering all the carnage he’s caused, euthanasia would be our cheapest option at this point.
He laughed at me and then ran off to pee on the neighbor dog.
