Jim and I used to dream about building our own house. We'd draw pictures of what we wanted and continued to dream. It is definitely easier to buy an already-done house than to remodel one. This has by far been the hardest week of the project physically. We had to move a heat vent that was in the kitchen but now is in the middle of this big open room. The vent will now come through a toe kick under the cabinets. Jim had to cut the floor down to see where the vent went and then we hired a young guy to come and put in new duct work. He had it done pretty quickly but filling in the holes is taking longer. Today Jim is finishing the project. It's been pretty scary to walk around the holes. I keep thinking I'm going to fall in and break a leg.
The sheet rock guy is here today. We needed to move some furniture (our bed) that was in the living room so he went in and textured our bedroom ceiling in 15 minutes. That was a tender mercy. Our pocketbook may not feel like that, but he did it so quickly that I was very grateful it was done.
Pantry door waiting to be installed.
Jim has framed in the new door frame and hopefully today we can get the door set in place.
