Paint, paint, and more paint. The 2 bedrooms are finally ready for us. So, this last week, with help from my girl Candice and Erin, we painted the back bedroom, the front bedroom, and the new kitchen wall. We primed them all first too. And of course had to paint the ceilings, which is hard work. They need some molding put up, carpet and baseboards and then I'll be ready to move into them!
The rest of our carpet is being installed this next Tuesday! Erin has been getting the front entryway ready for tiling. We got some plywood down, hardi-backer over that and then we will tile. We had some trouble with our bathroom tile because our subfloor is not sturdy enough and will have to be re-done. So we are taking all the pre-cautions and experimenting with the entry.
This last weekend we had Erin's cousin staying with us and it was great! He helped us out working around the house and Erin finally parted with his mercedes and gifted it to Josh. They did some tree trimming and stuff. I also did a lot of cooking, which I loved! We had quiche, juevos rancheros, and egg sandwiches for breakfasts, and tri-tip, chicken parmasean and dessert! It was a good excuse to cook a lot.
Here is some of the progress we've made:
