Well, almost anyway. After I mopped my way out the door onto the deck and walked to the pickup, we remembered that we hadn’t painted the supports of the carport because we ran out of spray paint. So we have one more task on the punch list before contacting the realtor.
Whether anyone wants to see them or not, I took pictures of the finished product. Just inside the front door is the living room with an archway into the kitchen and a door into the front bedroom.
Through the arch is the kitchen.
The utility room is small and really only accommodates a stacking washer and dryer. Previously, the washer was in the utility room with all the plumbing in the room. The dryer was in the corner of the kitchen. Now the plumbing is inside the wall where it belongs.
On the other side of the living room is the front bedroom. The doorway had been an arch on the living room side with a bi-fold door framed in on the bedroom side. The door into the bathroom had been arched, too, with a really funky door shaped to fit the opening. The maker had also fabricated old English castle-looking hinges for it. Now there are real doors. The only arch we left in that room was the closet and rather than take away all the character, we left it and covered it with a curtain.
The bathroom now has a new floor, refurbished tub and a new vanity, mirror and lamp. (The last picture was taken before we were finished but it was the only one with the new mirror and lamp)
The back bedroom has new carpet, too, and a matching curtain cover for the closet.
Outside, the deck got a good power wash and then stain and sealant. One of the last additions was post caps, after this picture was taken.
Yesterday we took the day off and went to a 5th grade volleyball game, a new sport for Jadelyn and for us. We’ve been to lots of baseball, softball and soccer games but never volleyball. Inside sports are noisy!
We’re enjoying a few days of very fall-like weather and it’s a welcome relief from the heat and humidity of the last week or so. Soon we’ll be moving on to even cooler weather but for now, we’ll be happy with what we have!
