Home Rehab: Everything but the Kitchen Sink

We’ve now spent two peaceful nights in our new home.

Today we will (Lord willing) finish cleaning out Pinewood Drive, and we’ll close the book on that chapter of our lives.

Though I haven’t posted daily we have still been busy on the renovations of our house.

I’ve been unpacking and organizing…little bits at a time.

Of course a lot of these areas have been covered with boxes right after I took the picture 😅, but getting the pretty picture was motivation to get things put away.

The kids have been carrying their load as well:

That’s going to be our kitchen floor…we’ll see how it turns out.

And while IV was buying the lumber from Champion Sawmill, he found this (very heavy) treasure:

That sawmill is a cool place!

Besides those renovations there were things to be done before our first night:

Thankfully we did all have a place to sleep.

And we have to start school tomorrow so I dug out our books…

I’m not nailing into the walls until everything is settled so I’ve just been using the nails that are already there. 

I decided the clock looks better on this one for now:

Most importantly we have a place to eat:

A well-stocked kitchen

I’ve got everything but…

You guessed it…

The kitchen sink. (And I have a hundred pound cast iron one of those, but it will have to wait for its final resting place.)

Praise the Lord!

Home Rehab Day 31: The Final Daily Update

Guess what these two pictures mean:

The second try with grout went MUCH better!
Our bedroom floor…shiny!

We’re officially ready to move in!

No, the big boys’ room is not finished. 

Yes, the kitchen is barely started. 

BUT, we all have a place to sleep. (The little boys’ have plenty of room to share til the upstairs room is finished… shouldn’t be long.)

We have two functioning bathrooms. 

And we have a makeshift kitchen that’ll keep up us fed and fueled. 

It’s been a long (yet fast) and tiresome month. 

We still have a long way to go and I’ll post some updates here as we go, but it won’t be everyday anymore.

We plan to start school next Monday so I have to get back in a schedule with kids and sort out all of their books…and clear a place for them to study.

I’m also ready to get back to my flowers and concentrate a bit more on my fitness business too!

Be on the lookout for updates coming soon on flowers and fitness…and always faith. 

And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

Hebrews 11:6

Praise the Lord!
