Day 117: Yard work day

Day 117: Yard work day I woke up a little before 7:00am, which is good because I set my alarm early so I could get to the market early, but I forgot to think that I had my alarm to only go off M-F. Either way, it didn’t matter. I picked up breakfast, a few […]

Cool house project

Feb 6th, 2008 // In: Posts // By: // Comments 1

I’ve always wanted secret passages and/or rooms in my house. How cool would this be? How disappointing for someone to find it only to discover a hot water heater inside. We have unfinished storage underneath our stairs, and I really wanted to hinge the stairs to turn it into a door, so you go in […]

Progress

Half way done with the staining. Next, I will paint the wall and tile in the kitchen. Due to money constraints, we will probably not replace the countertops. Our house is a total mess. We have kitchen stuff stashed in the dining room and living room. So, back to work so we can get things […]

Weekend over already?

I felt sick all Saturday, and spent most of the day sleeping after a late Friday night of watching Lost. Mac and I did get a chance to go out on Saturday night. We went out for dinner, and found a wine cabinet for the kitchen. We also have the first coat of paint almost […]

Done!

The countertop has been cut and sanded. The refrigerator is in and cooling. The dishwasher is doing its first load of dishes. It is so freakin’ quiet! It sounds like the bubbling of a small stream. And it has a countdown to when it will be done with the dishes. It and the refrigerator have […]

And so it begins

The refrigerator and dishwasher are here. They forgot to put in the braces for the diswasher, so we need to get them and secure the dishwasher to the countertop ourselves. We measured wrong a little bit for the refrigerator, and it doesn’t fit. So, it is sitting in the middle of my kitchen, and we […]

Ah, that’s where that was at…

Another task on our chore list is to organize the kitchen. I was supposed to be completely off of my feet when we moved into our house, and it is super-nice of those who helped move us in and unpack my kitchen, but I can’t find anything and items in my cabinets keep falling out […]

The next house task that we are going to tackle is our walk-in closet. I’ve ordered a closet organizer, we will go pick out paint this weekend or next, and pick up a sander so that I can refinish the old dresser we have in there. I also want to get a new light fixture. […]
