Today ends the first week of our renovation project and I must say that I am very impressed with my husband and all his helpers. They have managed to achieve everything listed on Week 1's list. As I type Seth is already at the house this morning working on the bathrooms, which are not even on the list until next week which begins tomorrow, so we are AHEAD of schedule!!! Just to review our first week consisted of closing, making lots of appointments, getting water and electric turned on, the delivery of our rental dumpster, tearing out wallpaper, knocking down walls, starting to repair sub-flooring and drywall and a little bit of packing. Shew that's a mouth full. We had hoped to have had the termite treatment completed this week but because of all the Kentucky summer rain, we have moved that onto the week 2's list. Speaking of which, here goes...
Week of July 27 - Aug 2, 2009
Termite treatment (hopefully)
Finish repairing sub-flooring and drywall
Start bathrooms (already started!)
Lay new flooring (Seth has decided to do this before painting, I don't know why)
Continue packing here.
A big chunk of week 2 is going to be spent on the flooring. Yesterday, Seth had our dogs Dallas and Daisy at the house, they LOVE their new backyard. Check back soon =)
Seth & I met in Kindergarten, we went to school together for 13 years but didn't start dating until the summer before our senior year of high school. After college, we were blessed with a beautiful baby boy. Colton was born in 2007 at 23 weeks and fought for his life in the NICU for 6 long months. He is the strongest little boy I know, he's my hero. I married Seth in 2008 and we live happily with our first son in Kentucky. Colton is blind and has severe developmental delays and mild cerebral palsy due to his early birth but we all work hard everyday to make sure he has the beautiful life we all know he deserves. We thank God daily for all he has given us. We live by the verse "Everything is possible for him who believes." Mark 9:23
