Clean slate

Before
After demo 9-13-07
Now

It's easy to forget how far we've come until I look at the old pictures and see they were taken only a few weeks ago.

The first mortgage payment was Monday. It's been six weeks since closing.

Since then, all the estate leftovers have been sold or donated. Demo is done. New plumbing and new furnace have been added. A roof leak was repaired, a bath exhaust fan installed. New plants are in the ground. The lawn has been power-raked and reseeded (thanks, Brit!). Lighting, paint and bathroom fixtures and tile have been purchased. Kitchen cabinets are in town, awaiting delivery.

Blair the contractor is nearly done drywalling, which included the main floor ceilings, entire bathroom and part of the kitchen.

And I'm nearly done with plaster patching on the main floor.

Not bad.
