Follow us as we journal our life and the improvements we're making to our 1928 bungalow home.
end of june progress report
so here we are. the last day of june. fifteen weeks left until our little bundle of joy is set to join us here at irvington bungalow. and where are we in the progress of work on this old house? read on, my friends.
bathroom - we received the tile sample for the floor.
this is the design and basically the colors. we put white pieces of paper over the gray colored tile the tile guy suggested we use (you can see it in the top row of the whole sample). the picture on the right shows a hex shaped tile but that is just to portray the actual shade of white that the tile will be (since the paper was a bright, stark white).
in the next couple of days we'll order the tile. so excited and a bit apprehensive as this guy has been taking FOREVER to get back to us about anything. so annoying. but i'm trying to be optimistic that once he has a down payment, things will move more smoothly??? maybe??? hopefully!!
air conditioner - did i mention our A/C unit went out a few weeks ago? yes, it has been a fun challenge to add that huge project to our list completely unexpectedly. after four quotes, we finally found a wonderful contractor who helped us out and temporarily fixed the problem for us because it turned so hot outside. we're getting a whole new HVAC system installed within the next week. so excited. complete with duct work to the attic and basement which will one day be finished out for living space.
chad poured a new concrete slab where the new unit will go. he is so proud (and so am i). it looks great!
and that's about all that has happened since the last time i wrote. things are moving forward, faster than they probably have up until this point. from here on out it will be a whirlwind until the baby is due. here is my wish list, not in the correct order:
walls painted in the whole house
floors refinished in the whole house
nursery finished (new drywall installed and paint)
guest bedroom finished (new drywall installed and paint)
wood blinds purchased and installed in the bedrooms
we can get this done in 15 weeks. right??? hahahahaha...........
