Phew, what a long day we had.  Long weekend actually.  Got a lot done, but we'll have many many more weekends like this one.  It was good and fun and rewarding, but it's a lot of work creating something out of nothing!

On our short checklist, I got the all the switch plates put up, the shelving built in the mudroom (ugh, that's a story in itself), the static doorknobs on, the oil lamps in the dining room put up, shelf and drawer liners, LOTS of cleaning by both of us, and some stuff rearranged.  Didn't do much outside, but there is time for that.  We need to focus on the inside right now. 

Didn't get to a couple of the things, but that's partially our fault for getting out there late each day, and then the fault of the Ikea shelving (again, more on that in a future post).  But as long as things are getting done, I suppose that's all that matters.  We have to remind ourselves that we have it, it's ours, and there is no time limit or deadline.


  1. Nothing nicer than making progress :) Well done!

  2. @Dani: Yes, it's alot of work and you're right, it's progress, every little bit. Though I don't have to tell you that, y'all are starting a home from literally scratch, and doing an amazing job. I love your blog by the way! But more on that soon (everyone, check out her blog). Thanks for the encouragement!
