Last night, I was searching for some information about the house that I couldn't remember. And I stumbled across old notes and photos from our very first tour inside.
It's hard not to want to "grade" your progress at this time of year. Time still seems to move very slowly. And, because we are still working inside of the walls, progress looks like chaos.
It really was a bit more chaotic back then, although it is difficult for me to see that sometimes. Does it still feel like we are camping with a mortgage, as I wrote to our pals on the Bungalow forum in June, 2003?
Well. Maybe not AS much. I used to come home to this...
Now I come home to this...
We used to have a lot of these that didn't work and blocked the sunlight...
...now we have re-built windows and no need for these. Which is means lots of sunlight.
What is the next large project we'll be tackling?
We need to transform this. (Photos taken right before we moved in.)
Yes, all of those pictures are from the second floor bathroom. The one we used last winter. Where we had to turn the shower on and off with a wrench and there was no heat.
Please wish us luck. And stop by if you'd like some s'mores.
