Making Progress on the Remodel: Renovation Update

Keeping Up

Does this give you an idea of why I haven’t been posting? We are still in the midst of the remodel, we lived with this mess for 5 days. We discovered in the kitchen, dining and 1/2 bath, that the linoleum and luan area had been stapled and glued to the subfloor. It took several days to make the floor smooth and flat enough to lay the new floor.

Since moving in late July of 2019 the main level of the house has been under a remodel. It takes more mental bandwidth and physical adjustment than I thought to live through something like this. There is still a bit more to go too. We no sooner get one thing finished and the furniture back in place, that we once again move it again. The good news is that we did discover the best arrangement for the furniture in the living room, it seems that nothing has stayed in place for more than 2 weeks. Of course, one change means several more changes one right after the other. Oh and the DUST!

And then these 2

2 pretty dogs
Goldie and Patton

As if the remodel isn’t enough there are the distractions of these two. The puppy has been a wonderful addition. He is bright, loving and growing like a weed. He is currently in teething mode, and so far doing well. Next week we make a trip to town for his 16-week vaccinations. Then we start some obedience training.

Goldie has been a kind and patient sister to the young one. Not sure who enjoys playtime more!K-9 playtime is only in the house. Patton is not heavy enough to take playing in the yard at a full gallop yet. Goldie outweighs him by more than 30 pounds. Soon though he will be big enough to take on the rough and tumble play.

Birdies aren’t bothered

a dozen blue eggs
2 days of eggs

Then there are the chickens and they don’t seem to be affected by the renovations or the cold. They have all reached maturity and are producing a dozen eggs every 2 days. The love to range about the yard and scratch up the leaves, and there are a lot!!! The area has many many oak trees and acorns!!! So far we have managed to keep up with the eggs, but only by sharing the wealth every couple of weeks or so.

On the creative front, I have fit in a little, very little creative time. More on that later! I hope you enjoy this little catchup. More Later- Beth

  1. Doing the floor must have been a nightmare. Sounds like the previous owners wanted that floor to be permanent.
    Fresh eggs are the best!

    1. We are just so glad we decided not to do the floors ourselves!! Not that we would have… painting was enough DIY for me. The floor installers were a bit rough on the walls too. Have to go back and touch up handprints and scratches. Will be lodging a complaint!!! Yes, the fresh eggs are the BEST!!! – Beth

  2. Things are looking up. The dogs are cute! Those eggs look yummy! See you soon!

    1. They are coming together! Soon we will be able to settle. I may not get off the couch for a few months! We took advantage of the nice weather yesterday and walked to the bigger creek. And those eggs are the best!!!

  3. I am trying to place an order in your store. I am unable to complete the order because it says there are no shipping options and to double check my address. The address is fine but I did try St for Street and Mt for Mount to no avail. I am not using a PO Box. I am in a city in S.C. ?? It says contact you if there’s a problem, but I couldn’t find an email or phone number to contact you.

    1. Sally Thank you for alerting me to the difficulties you were having. I sent a reply to the email address associated with your comment.
