Latest photos...

Here are some assorted shots of the living room hardwood in progress.

Day One of hardwood:

Day Two of hardwood:

And a glimpse into my writing nook with desk now in place:

We're hoping to complete the move over the next couple of days. Sleeping here has been fun!

Well, we now have a stair rail, ceiling fans, woodstove, toilets, sinks and a stove and dishwasher. Our floor will go in some time this week, depending on when the subfloor is dry enough for it. Everyone cross their fingers it's sooner rather than later.

Sean and his dad also did landscaping work on the weekend, in the rain, no less. We really appreciate his dad's help with this :)

Here are a couple of shots of Sean surveying the results of their considerable efforts:

And now, the interior.

The main floor bathroom:

My stove, installed!!

The ensuite pedestal sink:

The stair rail:

And finally, the wood stove, doing its thing:

Smoke coming from the chimney:

More soon, I hope :)

Wow, has it been that long...

since I posted here? Things have changed quite a bit. We have paint in all the rooms, including one of the basement rooms where Sean and I did the work ourselves. And we now have trim started, a sink, toilets, shower fixtures, appliances and more. Final electrical and plumbing is happening this week and maybe next, depending. And most of the flooring is in too, which makes a huge difference to how things look. Below are some photos.

Trim in front hall:

Sink in the kitchen:

Another view of the sink, plus the dishwasher:

A somewhat fuzzy view of the late afternoon sun in my writing nook - I hadn't realized quite how bright it would be in there on a sunny day:

Paint and trim in the bedroom - you can see the doors for the walk-in closet and the ensuite:

Our toilet in the ensuite - yeah, the little things do thrill me at this point *g*:

View of the hearth pad in the living room - the hardwood is going in almost last, to avoid damage to it while the other work is happening:

A view of the kitchen from the staircase - the balustrade should go in soon.

Gutters - we need them here in rainy BC during the winter:

The house from the back:
