We are really counting down the days now.
As it stands at the moment, we’ll be back in our home in less than a month. Here’s a recap of the last two weeks.
When they took up the boards on the front porch everything was rotten underneath.
So they rebuilt it.
Now we have a beautiful (and structurally sound) front porch!
The exterior cellar stairs have been installed.
The framing crew built the chases in the kitchen.
Farmhouse sink is in.
And then the countertops came.
Slowly but surely it’s coming together.
The vintage tub and sink came back looking sparkly and new.
In order to accommodate the tub, the flooring refinishers came and did the hall bath. We got a sneak peak of what our newly refinished floors will look like. We love them!
Then the bath fixtures went in.
And the old sink was installed in the powder room.
This made me really, really happy!
The trim guys were here all week finishing up the trim work around the home.
And look at these beautiful floor registers they made from the old heart pine wood.
We chose our screens for the back porch.
The cellar stairs were crafted.
We really love how they turned out!
We wanted a small area that was covered to go in and out of, and also wanted the steps for additional seating when we are entertaining outside.
A metal roof will go on this portion.
Last night we had a glass of wine on the back porch. I cannot say enough how excited we are getting to be coming back into our home. Still feels surreal and not quite ours yet. Tick tock, tick tock…
