Here’s how the living room looked last week:
and three days later:
Looks terrible in that state, but can you see where it’s going? It’s beginning to look a lot like built-in bookcases, right?
Here’s what’s left to do:
::: fireplace installed (Wednesday)
::: finish cabinets and electrical (Thursday?)
::: paint bookcases and drywall (Friday)
::: install television (Saturday)
::: tile and hearthstone installed (next Monday)
It’s loud around here. With lots of contractors in and out all day. And tons of dust and crazy things like open fireplaces and wires everywhere. But we’re hanging in, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed it’s all finished by next week because I have guests visiting every day with at least six of them staying here. Oh, and hosting Thanksgiving dinner for nine people and generally making merry with my family.
Deep breath. I can do this!
