It's high time we had an update on the house on the blog so here we are. Currently, a lot of the progress from the professional builders is being blocked by waiting for inspections and jumping through insurance hoops but we are in a good place and have been able to start doing some work ourselves. The first order of business was to remove the popcorn ceiling. The cleaning company told us it couldn't be cleaned and planned to just paint over it so we decided removing it was a better plan.
The first bedroom we are working on is Clovers old room, soon to be the play room. Since the girls want to share a bedroom when we move back in we are fixing this room up for storage and craft space.
The girls picked the turquoise color for this room and it looks so bright and fresh! Here are some in progress shots.
We bought a whole row of IKEA bookshelves for this room so there will be lots of storage space. As far as what has been going on with the professional crew at the house, the basement has been cleaned and painted (below)
The plumbing is fixed (hooray for working toilets!), And the electrical work is well underway.
Last but not least Eric finished the treehouse so the girls have a fun place to play while we work on the house. Probably not much will happen this week but we have ordered the glass for the windows and are hoping to be able to have them installed next week.
