The walls are up, and heaven help us, we're moved in. Now I just have to finish insulating, paint, and make this shell a home.
I start with a space like this:
It goes through a metamorphic stage:
and it comes out like this:
Those are vintage 1950's Beauty Craft metal cabinets. I LOVE my 50's retro kitchen.
The bathroom is functional after 4 weeks occupancy:
But I still need walls and insulation. So first the upstairs plumbing has to go in. Still, a hot bath is a luxury I will never take for granted again. I plan murals for this room. I call it the Bathroom of the Sun, the theme is Victorian Dawn. Probably Impressionist or classical Greek...likely a mix of both. The tub is getting my interpenetration of Monet's Irises painted on the blue sides.
One bedroom is mostly done, Downstairs Guestroom #2. It is in use by DH, me, and the baby. The boys prefer to sleep on the sofa where it's cooler right now.
The closet needs doors, trim needs to get nailed up, and the celling board put up, but the water and gas took top priorety for the last month. I'm still living out of boxes.
