We await, yet another, blizzard. Two feet of snow and winds of up to 50 miles an hour are on the way. French hubby is taking extreme measures to dig out the tractor in order to plow out more space by the house and on the road.
Nevertheless, we did manage, between storms (and during) to get the house primed, move the reclaimed wood so it is ready to be installed, and rough in the plumbing in both bathrooms. All tiles are on the way and some already here. All of the hardware for the bathrooms has arrived as well. I even picked out our toilets!
We have chosen, after much deliberation and painting samples, the paint for our exterior doors and some of the interior walls We continue to contemplate the rest of the interior paint. We worked with a wonderful company in NY to get the paint.
We hope to do American clay in our main living area. This is proving to be quite a project and a learning experience. A suivre.
We have scheduled appliance delivery and the wood stove is on the way (we have had a temporary one on loan from a friend). The hearth is almost ready to be installed (our own granite).
Floors, baseboards, window sills and interior doors and jambs are all scheduled for next week.
Despite the snow, forward we go.
There has been snow recently. A lot of it. Multiple feet of it. Shingles move along, slowly. French husband is happy. He can plow, shovel and chop wood. We have the wood stove running to keep it warm inside for the painter who is priming our walls. We have a heater running in the basement to dry our reclaimed wood flooring.
We attempt to pick paint colors and styles. So many choices. More on that soon. In the meantime, it is winter in Maine and time to hunker down with a good movie and our kitties.
