Update on what we've been up to in 2011
I haven't posted in a while, maily because I haven't had alot to report. Our renos were at a standstill for sometime mostly because of our busy schedules, lack of funds, and reno burnout! There was an incident with a leaky pipe back in January. We had water dripping into our kitchen and had to turn the water on and off before and after our showers. This also left us using the toilet in the basement (which is just that -no sink, no walls, just a toilet). We ended up with a couple of holes in our kitchen ceiling (which still need to be patched) but the pictures were way too boring to share. Once we had the problem isolated, we realized that there was a tiny leak in one of the elbow joints so we called in a plumber to have it repaired.
Also in 2011, we've received some good news which has provided us with a solid timeline to get additional work done around the house. I am due at the end of November. We've decided to work on the master bedroom first, then tackle the guest room (which will be converted to the nursery), then the office (which will become the new guest room) and then the dining room (including finishing the hutch!). We still plan to carpet the two sets of stairs, as well as the 3rd floor bedroom (which until now, we have been using as our master bedroom). The room will be converted into the new office and we will leave the bed up there for guests. We are in the process of looking for quotes to convert the other room on the 3rd floor to a beautiful master bathroom, which once complete we can move forward on the carpeting mentioned above. Stay tuned for updates on the Master bedroom!
