Oil based paint fumes are thick in the air of Ugly House, which means trim has been painted, which means walls have been painted, which means I am HAPPY! They FINALLY completed all painting in the house with the exception of the baseboards in the common areas, the crown molding in the dining room and doors for built in cabinetry, which have all yet to be installed. They plan to paint all said items tomorrow and Trent will install them once the paint dries. This place is so close to being pretty that it’s crazy!
Trent decided to wait until Saturday to begin installing the floors as the painters will be cleaned up and completely out of there by then. We are hoping by the end of the weekend he can have the bedroom wing completed. In the meantime he installed the window sill trim on all of our living room/kitchen windows.
Speaking of storms, we got something like 7″ of rain last night which caused our garage to flood. Mind you, this garage is filled with every piece that will make up our future kitchen. We are so lucky that only a few items were damaged. None the less, these few items will cost is a pretty penny. As the saying goes, it could have been worse! Much worse!
Trent is pulling an all-nighter as we speak, installing our new light fixtures throughout the house. He will be taking the night off tomorrow in honor of this old lady’s birthday. I’m hoping one of my gifts is a bedroom floor :).
