Refinished Floors

• 23 July 2009


































At least one room in the house is almost completed. I'm in denial that we are 3 days away from moving into La Maisonnette and there still isn't a toilet, a bathroom sink, or a spatula in the house. Veteren renovators, please tell me this is normal...:) Trying to keep the kids out of the mess is another story (the Husband is meeting with the community summer camp director as I write to try and see if our oldest two can be otherwise diverted with fun activities). That will leave my two-year-old and I to clean up La Maisonnette. I'm laughing to myself thinking about the logisitics of that situation...talk about keeping life interesting!

That wood is beautiful. Do you know how old it is?

As a veteran renovator: this is totally normal. Always budget 30% more time and money than you'd expected.

But the finished work is so, so beautiful. Nice work.

It looks amazing.

When I was young we lived a couple months with just a microwave. This was when they first came out, cookbooks where everywhere for wonderful dinners cooked in them. After that I think we stuck to just heating things up.

Hopefully you get running water and a toilet quickly!
