Blue, grey or white or black or ……..

Ok, so, the closing on the house may come sooner than we thought. We have been thinking that it would be March 24 but now if we can have the next and hopefully last set of paperwork in this week then it will only be ten days from that day!!! Oh I am not fully packed yet but we still have so much to do!!!

Before we can even move into the house we need to get flooring for the living room and either refurbish the hardwood floor in the dining room, pay someone else to do it or simply cover it up. Then there’s this old flooring stuff in the two usable bedrooms that is really really old and gross and very brightly coloured with flowers and oh my!. There are a couple Windows that need to b fixed in what will be Brandeis room. The house is 2100square feet but on the second floor with the roof being how it is we only have 1400 square ft of useable space. The ceilings are so low all through the house and of course I have 6 feet tall boys!!. 

Trying to figure out all the colors and designs we need now that we know when we do the big job we can type in is a severe pain in the butt!! When we can afford the remodeling we are raising the roof, making the dormar from Brandeis room run the whole side of the house. Tear out the stairs and the bathroom and closet and all the walls around those in the middle of the house so the bathroom can be moved, the stairs rebuilt with an open design and the upstairs needs a hallway to make easier access to all four bedrooms. Now we can’t do one without the other so it’s all going to need to be done about the same time. Ugh. I do not want to wait!!!! I wish we could just go in and do it all at once and move in to a finished house but, that’s not reality. We are tearing the back doors she’d down and putting in glass sliding doors, after we move the bathroom, to build a nice big deck. I am looking forward to doing it all but at the same time I wish I could have my dream house done in time for our wedding. 

Oh and then there’s all the wedding stuff!!!

That’s a whole other story…
