Life is slowly getting back to normal around here.
We have had construction guys in and out over the last few weeks.
The weather has become a major obstacle and caused several delays.
It all started with rain and ended with this lovely white stuff.
At the end of every day I have tried hard to piece our home back together.
Replacing windows and the entry door has been a huge job
and a dirty one.
And of course we were not just replacing old windows with new ones ...
we decided to replace these 70's style windows with much larger ones which would
expand the views from the bedrooms.
And we also replaced the single entry door with a double entry door.
We did keep the same sized windows on the front of the house as they are already quite large.
Now that the windows are all in upstairs
I have been able to get my office assembled.
That is almost ready to share....not quite...but almost.
You can still see remnants of the "workmen" in the house.
Slipcover for the ottoman is in the wash.
I feel like I am forever dusting.....oh boy.... I despise dusting.
The house has been feeling quite grey.... sort of B&W if you know what I mean.
If you look closely at these photos you can see that there is still some taping to be done for the drywall... these armoire doors will soon have to close up for that project.
I just needed some sanity last night so I re-filled this armoire with cook books etc.
Perhaps jumping the gun,
as workmen are expected here tomorrow to finish all the details.
To the right of this image is a stack of wood trim that will go around each window on the outside of the house as a finishing detail.
That was how I spent my weekend.
Of course given the arrival of snow I did not want to leave that trim exposed until next spring....
Anyway, details....all details now.
I am looking forward to the next step which will be decorating for Christmas.
Have you already started??
