Well this past weekend was most likely the last weekend we’ll go out kid free – the next weekend we go out is for our ‘vacation’ so of course we’ll bring Alex (plus it’s her birthday weekend!). After that we’re getting close to the end of what I can do anyhow as I get further along so we’ll bring her along.
We drove out Thursday night and both worked from the house on Friday so we could get the new vanity delivered. Then we worked friday night from 6-11 with a break to go to Lowe’s for our tile!.
Friday night was mostly making a new door frame for the master bedroom door and getting that installed. Ryan also worked on some chair rail in the hallway and I got some outlets installed in the master bedroom.
Saturday we started with another hard project and got the master bathroom fan vented out through the attic frieze board. Ryan had to hang out of the half moon window to cut the hole for it, it was quite the ordeal but the fan is vented!
Other than installing lights (I got the front hallway lights all installed up the stairs and top of stairs!), I also took up the carpet on the stairs finally. We can finally see these beautiful stairs that will look great refinished!
Ryan got trim around the rest of the upstairs hallway (chair rail and door trim around the master bedroom door). Then he did the other doors in the master bedroom (outside door and closet door). The bathroom door is our last one in there that needs to be installed and trimmed out!
I got the vanity light boxes installed (we were waiting on the vanity so i could make sure the lights were centered above the sinks properly and I think we are good here).
Our neighbor finished spackling the back porch and got that sanded. It’s ready for primer/paint and trim! Then he built the knee wall in the bathroom for the shower and put in some blocking for the glass door to hang on when we get that.
We headed back to NY Saturday night at 7 so we could have a family day with Alex on Sunday which was very a great idea and ended up being a blast.
I’m headed back to the house this week to get the master bathroom inspections done so that the next weekend we are out we can move forward on the bathroom (and our neighbor can start sheetrocking it). Exciting!
Lot’s left to do but the inside is coming along nicely and if we hire someone to paint we are getting closer for sure!
