a few steps back (and some progress)

8.08.2011

It's hard to move forward when you keep moving back. This is reality of a home renovation!


But there are some pretty things to look at. Part of the new stair rail has gone up... meaning we are making progress. Now that this is up we can officially live upstairs!

Oh no! is that a water pipe trench? I like the railing, very simple and clean. Just my style.

I know there is a very good reason for the big hole. Guessing you are moving things around in your kitchen and need to prep for it. I simply can't wait to see the results. You have a fantastic eye, so I know it's going to be a show stopper when your done!! Very exciting. M.

Hate to say it but I so don't envy you. Coming off the heels of having been building for 3 and a half years, (in the home stretch AT LAST) hoping to move in about a month! It was great and exciting the first two years, the novelty kind of wore off after that. Wishing you a speedy, timely uneventful process! It is very exciting, but requires a lot of patience and the more organized you are the more it will move on along. So happy to have found you though. Started my own blog to document our house building about 7 months ago...stop by and say hi and also doing a great giveaway today!!
