The snail moves a little faster

Here are the most recent kitchen photos. The appliances are in place (except for the microwave), but not hooked up. The floor is still covered in paper and the handles aren’t on yet. After consultation with our designer/realtor friend Kyle, we finally picked a wall colour, but has yet to be applied:

The tilers have shown up, so things are really starting to come together. Here’s the sunroom floor:

The downstairs bathroom:

And the front entrance:

The tilers didn’t know we were living here during the renos, so they did the tile by both entrances. Which we weren’t allowed to walk on. So, they put down planks  by the front door and we managed. 

At the same time, the trim and moulding is being cut and attached, such as Maria’s window:

Speaking of  Maria’s room, it’s now the first one finished. It’s pretty amazing. And very “lilac.” Here are her walls before:

This is just a taste of all the art she and her friends had created on her walls over the years (Naruto, a manga character, and Harry Potter being the dominant themes).

So here’s a taste of what it looks like now (unfortunately, we didn’t take pictures before we immediately filled her room with clutter from the hallway so the painter could paint the hall the next day):

A finished room has us filled with hope. Having my house filled once again with workers and tools has also filled me with hope. It will end. We will have a life again.
