The snail moves a little further

Things are picking up, but never as fast as we want. We were supposed to move our stuff back into the house on May 26, but things weren’t ready, so we aimed for June 2. We needed the trim finished, the walls painted, and the built-ins in the basement done so we had places to put our stuff without interfering with work areas. The contractor got pretty close, so we went ahead. There was one crisis when I discovered the painter had painted our shelving white, not the pale yellow we wanted. After some calming and coaxing, We got our yellow shelves, just in time.

Here are shots of the empty finished areas, with most of the flooring exposed (just not in the kitchen). Here’s the entrance area and living room:

And more of our green accent wall:

My favourite room is the sunroom:

Basement storage:

So all new and shiny and empty. It couldn’t last long:

The clutters returns! But we are determined to find a place for everything or get rid of it.

Next, I hope to show you a finished (or nearly) kitchen.
