And, really, the hard stop for actual house renovations was Saturday, April 15 … because on Sunday we needed to clean – ALL DAY. So, this week, we chugged … More Mad Rush.
So, it seems like we just can’t catch a break with this house. For all the progress we make, it seems like someone else comes in and moves it all a few steps back. Very short version: We bought a new bed, and I cleaned the master bedroom floors … just in time for them … More One thing, and now another.
I took vacation on Monday & Tuesday this week. I used it to work on the house. I tried to warn you that this wasn’t a real vacation (see that question mark in the title???).

That’s what happened this past weekend. We were so productive. It was our biggest weekend yet. There’s not much to say about this stuff. We went in and just worked.

Some of it I’m going to have to just fix myself. And, we’re not sure what he did (because he certainly did NOT … More Priming and Painting
The shoe has been installed and everything looks mostly good. There were a few pieces that didn’t appear to have poly on them, and a few noticeable gaps between the shoe and the floor/baseboards … and our contractor has been great and is totally willing to work with us and send someone out to … More Cleaning, Shoe, and Wall Prep
3 days. It only took 3 days. The listing went up on Monday afternoon. By Thursday evening, we had an offer. By Friday morning, negotiations were over and we had a signed contract.

Our house is actually, finally, really for sale. We signed the sale and disclosure papers on Saturday, March 11, 2017. A photographer came to shoot video & pictures on Sunday, March 12, 2017. Our house is listed today, Monday, March 13, 2017. It’s the beginning of the end. We’ve been working with a realtor for … More Well, it’s listed.
We have over 500 linear feet of baseboards. And, I painted all of it this past week. Twice. I might have ruined my left knee, hip, and elbow; along with my right shoulder, forearm, wrist and hand.
