Yay! Phase 1 of remodeling this house is now coming to a close. Carpet is here for the bedrooms. Yee-hah!

As we speak, the orange (yep, I said ORANGE) carpet is out on the curb and my new carpet is being installed. Yippie! I can actually sleep in my bedroom. Our bed was in the family room up until now.

Of course, the new tile for the bathrooms isn't ready yet. We will have tile in the kitchen and wood throughout the rest of the house. We bought it already but WE aren't ready for that yet as much more work needs to be done.

I KNOW I am a dork so ya don't even have to say it! LOL!

Fixing up a house can be fun and sometimes frustrating. In the final stages of a large 16 X 10 master bath addition - bought the house last year with 1.5 baths - so this is a huge value add for me. Putting down Brazilian Koa (Tigerwood) in office along with some tile work. Contractor has been good to work with even though he's now on vacation. But it was money well spent.

I too have "this year's" project coming to a close. What a mess I have been in for the last 3 1/2 months. Tearing down old plaster and lathe is a messy nightmare

You want to talk frustrating? New Whirlpool dryer dead in 2 months, call warranty company, they come out say it needs a new motor, 2 weeks later, they come out now it needs new timer, another week, sir there is nothing wrong with your dryer it is electrical. Call my electrician, there is nothing wrong with electrical. Say, screw it, I'll buy a new dryer, it gets delivered, turn it on and it works. Thrilled. Throw a load in the dryer, it doesn't heat up. Pissed. Call the electrician back and say it has to be electrical. Check the voltage with the dryer running, there's the problem, it is the line. Replace the line. $500 and 4 weeks later I can do some laundry.
