We woke up this morning at 5:15 and about 5 minutes later, the power went out. Not a good start to a Monday when the contractor is supposed to come over. And it happened right before we had coffee started. Nooooooo!!!!! But it came back on and the day has begun.
I don't have a photo of the finished donkey shelter, but this is the "in progress" view. It now has a slanted shingled roof. So that's checked off the list. And the inspectors (chickens) are laying eggs behind one of those straw bales. I guess they approve.
The Corian-type shower surround is off the wall. Wow, that was stuck on to last forever. Pretty colors behind that, don't you think? LOL.
I've selected tile for the shower and bathroom floor. It's a small space with no window so I didn't want to go bold. I like this. The small tiles are for the shower floor.
Once this is complete, we will replace the kitchen sink, faucet and disposal. We cannot do a full kitchen remodel right now, but the sink is in bad shape. No photos of that because I won't show it to anyone.
Smaller projects like these make such a difference in a house that's 30 years old. Three years ago I replaced all the plumbing, the septic line, and the heating/ac. Then last year we did a remodel on the front of the house. And in February we put in a new laundry room/half bath. There are always projects on the list so we just tackle them as we can and it's less stressful that way.
And so another week begins. I just know it's going to be good.
