We closed on the farm January 27th and we are moving in March 1st. Ivan’s kicked it into high gear to get everything done in time. We did demo the first week. We took down the wall separating the dining room and living room. Made an entry into the garage from the living room. We are closing in the garage and turning it into a play room/movie room. Took down the wall between the dining and kitchen to open up the space. We’ve also raised up the ceiling throughout the whole house. All the cabinets, flooring, showers, toilets, mirrors and light are gone.
This week we’ve started smoothing out the walls, no more orange peel! Installing can lights in all the rooms. I met with the cabinet guy and went over all my ideas, he’s drawing up the plans and I should get them back soon. We are raising the floor up in the garage to make it even with the rest of the house, that will be done by the end of the week. Then we have to brick the outside wall to close the room in. When we raised the ceiling we took out the air ducts, new ones were installed yesterday. The landscapers are coming this week to trim up some of the neglected tree’s. Once we get all that done its on to the fun stuff, flooring,cabinets and fixtures. I can’t wait. That’s the stuff I love!
I feel like we are in fast forward. Everyone Ive talked to has said their remodel took 6 or more months. We are moving right along. Here’s to hoping it stays that way.
