Wow, this has been a long dormancy period even by my standards! I’ve noticed that over the past two years the blog goes silent while I’m out enjoying summer, but this time I’ve went all summer as well as most of the winter without posting. This blog desperately needs some consistency…
All has been well. The house didn’t suck the life out of me and has actually been progressing albeit at a leisurely pace. So much I have learned from this one project not only about construction methods but about myself as well.
Remember that LOA I took back in the summer from my job to work on the house? Well that never ended. We will call my current situation as “voluntary unemployment.” Yeah, that sounds good…
I will be making an effort to update you guys on how things have progressed with the real estate project in the coming weeks. Here is a little taste of how things are shaping up. More to come; promise 😉
The (absentee) Stoic
Living room before
And After 🙂
The first picture was taken from what is now the hallway. To the left side is now a bedroom. You can see the how the space was split in the third picture where the wall and new closet are now. Instead of the old aluminum window there now exists a double window. I wish I had taken a picture when this was being done as the wall was totally cut into. To the sides of the window as well as above and below was all cut out to accommodate the new framing for the double window. Lets just say this whole living room got much worse before it got better!!
