That's right folks! I'm posting pictures of ceilings now, and I am soooo excited! For 180 days, my husband and I have been living in a dark, ceilingless basement (and yes, ceilingless is the word of the day). I take that back, we "officially" moved upstairs on Sunday, so technically, we were down there for 177 days. Still, we've been staring at the open floor joists under two dim lights for purt near half a year. I'm loving the new recessed lighting, which wasn't a part of our original plan. We have also eliminated those two large, pesky piles of ceiling tiles that had become a part of our decor for the past six months. We still have the kitchenette and bathroom to tackle...lots of cutting and tight installation spaces we've been putting off, but the basement is starting to shape up. In fact, my husband says it looks good enough to move back down there. He can go right ahead. I'll live in luxury on the main floor where I have developed a new relationship with the sunshine as I finally get to wake up to it each morning streaming through our main floor windows! Considering it was our goal to have the transition made by March 31st, being three months behind schedule isn't too bad, right? Trying to do some of the work ourselves has not been ideal with the mild winter we experienced which carried into a busy farming and real estate season. Time to work on the house has been at a minimum. Throw in a Master's degree and everything else that needs to be done in life, and those one or two hours we've had to work on it each day don't go very far.
I've been itching to get to the blog this week. (Literally. From the dust that falls on you when you are trying to replace ceiling tiles). I've got lots of neat things to post about our place and in the local real estate market. Stay tuned for a bush that looks like a McDonald's happy meal character, lawn crises, tree diseases, and so much more in and around our humble abode. Welcome Home!
