RENOVATIONS

Updating our home.

This past winter has been filled with our home renovations. After ten years living here in our home, we have progressively renovated room by room, leaving the last to the kitchen, as it is the most expensive. We started renovating the back entrance as it seemed to be a good place to start as it didn’t take out our bathrooms, bedrooms or kitchen. All of which are in uses everyday.
Now as I write this blog, we are fully renovating our kitchen. I am sitting in the kitchen with drywall dust on my keyboard which I keep blowing off. We replaced two large windows, appliances and are redoing the cupboards, island and all the cabinets. Fortunately last winter and spring we had laid all the hardwood floors and that was messy too, lots of moving everything around.
It’s been one step at a time. Each winter we have worked on one project.
All three levels of our home were messy, labor intensive and expensive. But this summer we are making progress. Hurrah!

Within one more month we hope to have our main floor with kitchen and bathroom, dinning room, powder room, sitting room, entrance and living room almost all done.  Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!

 

SUMMER 2018

Oh MY Goodness summer 2018 went by so fast!! Both our sons and their families and my honey and I did renovations which cut in our summer holidays. Probably it was a good summer to do renovations because we had many days without too much sun due to the smoke from all the forest fires. Also it wasn’t really a great summer for beaching and boating as there were plenty cool days.

However we did get a lot of things done yeah! and still found some time to have get -togethers and mini holidays. One fun and delightfully little honeymoon holiday was just with my honey and I. We found a wonderful charming rustic old log home in a beautiful quiet mountain meadow where we spent a day and night. It was sooooo romantic and relaxing. The only sound we heard were the leaves fluttering in the warm summer breeze. I loved it so much I wanted to stay awake and just listen to the wind and the fluttering of the leaves. I am a nature girl and soooo love quiet and nature.
