My head is spinning will all that is still left to do and organize. As expected, we are finding the unexpected behind walls and so each step takes longer and more problem solving than we had planned for. We have a plumber and electrician we love and are having them help us wade through the craziness of this house's innards.
Our flooring arrived late last night (very late - I had to come home to put Peanut to bed and Honey had to bring in all 47 boxes on his own!) and can be installed once the basement walls are patched in the rec room and the office wall is taped and mudded. Hopefully that can be finished in time for Honey and I to lay the whole lower level floor this weekend. The bedrooms upstairs are now painted their true colors - they just need a second coat and the trim.
This morning I went to get a permit for the removal of the wall between the kitchen and dining room. Oh what a process! We were there for over two hours and still haven't completed the process. Peanut was signing "milk" and getting tired and crabby, so I decided to bail and finish this tomorrow. I was getting ready for the building review and it seemed the guy was being pretty picky, so I figured my little line drawing might not cut it anyway - I'll make a nice drawing and hope to get there early tomorrow.
This afternoon we'll go over to the house to check out the flooring, check in with contractor Mark, meet with the electrician about the kitchen, and make some decisions about who is doing our kitchen - us or someone else!
