Cha cha cha changes...


Next time you gut a home built in 1948 remember...it will NEVER be finished, ever.
So, while the weather is not cooperating outside for Misters nursery, we have been trying to get some of the lingering projects finished up inside the house.



This is the downstairs bathroom...that has never been showered in. Remember the pluming debauchery? Well that is resolved and we are now cleaning up the damage...re-grouting the tile, fixing the ceiling, and now I have to replace my wallpaper (you can see where they patched right over it with putty or whatever it is they use). Nice job.
We just got a plug put in the living room area so I can actually plug in my lamp. We put it in the side of the fireplace. Its hard to think of everything when you are starting from scratch, but forgetting a plug in the sitting area? Oh dear.
This photo looks gross...but we just set the tile around the fireplace. Its obviously not done yet.
Talk about gross...this is disgusting. What a nightmare, one thing after the next is wrong with this so Im not even going to go into it. The cement countertop/sink was poured for this last week and we are just waiting for it to cure so that we can replace this mess. And finally, I picked out the mirror for above it.
We also got the wood on the staircase, not quite finished but i LOVE it.
So, thats the scoop around here. I am so excited to have some of the little things (and not so little things) that we have learned to live with get finished. Mister will think we have always had our act together.

It's looking great- not that it didn't before- I think you've inspired me to get our base boards that we started 3 years ago done...
