A few more pictures

Following are work pictures when the guys were preparing to do the living room roll-out. They had quickly finished the other roll-out (small bedroom) and decided to do the living room at least over to the hallway today, so they could continue it all the way back. To their great surprise, the line from the living room into the hall met and meshed perfectly with the flooring at the bedroom doorway.

I sure wish I could have at least TSP’d this part of the living room so I could have begun painting it, but I’ll just be sure to cover the floor well. The guys are pulling staples and nails that were missed the first time around.

This is the finished small bedroom – I will get the molding for around all the perimeters of the rooms when it is all finished.

I asked them to just leave the door un-hung as I will move it somewhere else to paint it on both sides.

These pictures have that golden glow. I know it could be fixed in Picasa or any other photo editing program, but I don’t do Picasa or the others. I just don’t want to spend my brainpower learning how to do it. I am a terribly curious person when it comes to certain things, I am an avid genealogist which is like working a huge jigsaw puzzle, I read a lot, and will read much more if my eyes ever cooperate, but I pick and choose what I will learn next. Photo editing will never be on my hot list! So the photos have a yellow cast.

A word about housekeeping. I know you can see the mess throughout the house, but it is a work in progress and I hope one of these days to publish photos of everything when completed and in immaculate condition. I find it easy enough to live with the clutter when I think about the ultimate rewards. Actually, I didn’t photograph the worst of the clutter! What is more frustrating is knowing how much trim and touch up painting I have to do, plus all the closet fronts.

  4. Your house looks great, wait till you have a son & his family living with you, now that's when you notice how "Messy" it is. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna..

  5. As long as I make my bed each morning I don't notice the clutter so much. Pretty good rationalization for me. 🙂

  6. Lady is already enjoying her new home. It is lovely.It takes a while to get it all the way you want it, but it will be worth it to have your own 'paid for' home.Happy Tails and Trails, Penny, TX

    This is looking great Gypsy. You have made amazing progress. I know it seems like a lot to go but look at all you've done. The former owner may regret she ever let you have it if she sees what you've done.

    The floors look great! Much better than carpeting. You may want to get some of those felt pads for the legs of your table and couch, don't want to scratch those floors.

    Your little "casita" looks great. How do you feel about NOT being an RV'r anymore? I miss it.

  12. Susan says:

    Looks Great! I guess I get partial credit for training those guys? Sorry I wasn't able to help out.

  14. Aside from the financial cost, I as well prefer to have someone else do those kinds of jobs like flooring, etc. Your place is looking really nice and soon the fun part of decorating and arranging things will be at hand. I have always loved moving into a different place and making it all cozy and comfy:))
