Well, we are a few weeks out until opening, and I am getting nervous!  There is lots to do yet! yikes!  We ran into a huge plumbing problem, as the toilet was not properly affixed to the sewer!  Yep, it has super old plumbing- lead on cast pipe..... so I called the plumber, and they can't come until the end on this week.  So, I will go ahead and do all the bathroom except the flooring.  It needs the wainscoting and trim put up, and then when we get the toilet resolved, we will get the flooring in.  SHEESH! 
So, next steps are affixing the kitchen island, and installing the dishwasher.  YEA!!!!
So, we are getting closer!  :o)
Thank YOU for all of your encouragement and prayers!

A Photo by Linda...

Today Meggie and I had lots of visiters when we were working on the lil' haus.  First, a couple of bank girls came over to check us out and to encourage us!  Thanks Jennie and Diane!
Secondly, came Linda Teahon with her trusty camera, and loads of ideas and encouragement!  THANK YOU dearie!  We so enjoyed our visit.  Come have some coffee with us soon!
Then, my dearest Brother Ron stopped by to see how my wallpaper removal was going and to visit about how the house was so stinky and dirty!  He gave his "two cents" and peeled out before I could twist his arm into helping me! :o) He has enough on his plate as well.
Lastly, Kess and Amanda came to help me power through the last of the three layers of wallpaper, and even took over the scraper for awhile.  I needed a break... let me tell you!
We finished up the trim paint on the east room, and got most of the south room done.  Just a second coat on the wall left.
So, tomorrow  I think we will tackle the living room paint job.  I really want to get the floors sanded so that we can start the long arduous task of the polyurethane coatings....
What a fun day, huh?
I think so, working on my dream is AWESOME!

Plugging Away...

Well, Jeff and I scrubbed all of the fly-crapola off the rest of the walls-THANK YOU HON! And he got all of the old curtain hardware off the walls and windows, and all of the cupboard hardware off.  I got the two bedrooms painted, only the trim to paint.
Sorry!  I will today!
Anyhow, we decided to keep the wallpaper in the kitchen..... I really do still love it!  Just going to repaint the white in the kitchen.
Pat got the flooring humps resolved with some reinforcing the floor beams, and leveling of some stringers that are OLD, oLd, OLD!!  Yes, this lil' haus has lots of crocked-ness!
Gives it character.... if only the walls would talk!
We are off to have some fun with Great Grandma, and coffee with Jess.
Have a great day!

There she is..... isn't she beautiful?  She was ordered today!  And will be here within 4 weeks! YEA!  I cannot wait to share her love with all of you! <3 <3 <3
And, I got a pretty darn good start today... the two bedrooms are ready to paint!  Washed the walls, and chit-chatted with Renee and Amanda.  We got some things hashed out about various aspects of the lil' haus.  I think that it will be pretty cool.... just need more time, energy and money! :o)
I will have pics. tomorrow, K?
