My bedroom and bathroom are officially painted as of today. The flooring is mostly done and then all that’s left are details. Trim work, plates over the outlets and switches, things like that. Ryan went home tonight to air the place out (the fumes from the drywall mud burned our eyes and throats within seconds of walking into the house!) and then he’s moving everything we own into those rooms instead now. Our guys will paint in the kitchen/living room and kids’ room this week and then after the minor details of those rooms, we’re done.
Our tiny cabin in the woods, our dream for so long, will finally be complete!
This journey started in August and it’s almost over now.
We’re in the home stretch, almost ready to settle back into a routine and just live in our home.
I have cried many tears over the difficulty of living in such varying conditions but the process, even on those hard days, has honestly been fun. And as my dear friend Anne Shirley once said, “looking forward to things is half the pleasure of them.”
Here’s to the other half.
