Most of this week I've been feeling a bit down about it all, resulting in this post yesterday. Then this morning, I went home to grab a few things and the builders tell me... (drum roll please)...
THEY'LL BE FINISHED NEXT WEEK!!!!!!!!
That's just what I needed to hear. There is light at the end of the tunnel, and I can see its brightness peeking through.
At the moment they're working on the finishing touches:
|Plastering and and patching the floor in the new living area|
|The new wardrobe in our master bedroom|
Of course, this doesn't mean the end of the renovations. We still have a long list of things to be done: painting, floor polishing, painting, heating and cooling, painting, cabinetry, painting, and fitting out the ensuite (we decided to leave that room for now) included. Oh, and we have some painting to do as well. Not to mention the fun bits: furniture shopping and room decorating!
But what it does mean is our house will be ours once again. We can get back to life as usual.
And I think I'll be moving home again this weekend, and for the last week I'll just escape during the days.
