Life During a Remodel


Hello Sunshine, Oh my goodness living in the middle of a remodel! Before you ask, it is a have to job. We put it off as long as possible.

Our house started being built back around 1890’s. Room by room over the years it has grown. We have had the rest of the house completely remolded and added onto the backside.

We are looking at about two more months until all the work is completed. If you have remodeled or even added on… Oh my goodness. Some days it seems that it is taking forever and other days I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

The plan is to have everything finished by the time school starts in the fall. I believe the worst part of the remodel is the sanding of the drywall. It does not matter how much you prepare the dust is everywhere. the white powder is throughout the entire house.

I’ll let you in on a little secret. The drywall dust is the main reason I did not push the project before but there comes a time when I had to put my Big girl panties on. Yes I will enjoy all the new space that we are creating.

The stairs are supposed to go in this week. i have looked at so many color charts for paint. I pick out set of colors for each room and my other half says, “really”. I will have the final say in the room colors.

We have narrowed the floor covering choices. NO carpet. The question is do we lay it down or do we pay a professional to do it right? I vote professional.

During a remodel or an add on a family either grows together or completely falls apart. We have come through stronger but are tested with each new task.

Have you added onto or been through a remodel? What task did you find more trying?
