SJ on the Move

moving along....



It's hard to continually find new blog posting titles to describe the progress on our house. This past week the granite and sink were installed, the pendant lights went up and the french door went in, and the old radiators were taken away. We're still awaiting the plumbing and several other finishing touches. Today while SJ and I were at the Art's Festival, Nathan worked hard ripping up the wood floor in the new family room so we can put in new, cherry wood floors. Nathan says he had a big pile of wood in the front yard he was staring at thinking it was way to much for the Arlington trash collectors. Well, wouldn't you know it that just at that moment someone drove up and asked Nathan if he could buy the pile of wood! Nathan ended up selling it for $50. Not bad for something you were going to just toss. This is one of the few happy stories we have to share about this whole house renovation process. Most everything else has been a hassle, a problem, involved a disagreement, involved several phone calls and emails, and included stern tones of voice. I think we're going to have to live in this house forever after all this work. At least we will likely never take on another home renovation project again!
