Well hey there everybody. It has been quite a long evening, but the day rounded out with some good home-related events. First Ryan came home with a truck load of salvaged wood. After working out the nails and sawzalling off some termite stricken portions, we were left with a nice stack of useable strips. Remember that shed that’s on the land? We’re thinking some of this could be used as siding for when we get around to giving it a little renovation love.
Awesome happening number two was we got a free lesson in laying tile. In our current rental, the area around the stove and sink was looking a little rough, so our landlord and his grandson came out to add some tile and spruce it up a bit. The difference is night and day and I think we pretty much understand the process now.
We are moving into a refocusing phase for our home design. It’s fun to throw around a million ideas, but the fact is we could do that til kingdom come. We also have to do a little bit if accepting about budget–what will make the cut and what won’t. Even some elements that would cost upfront, but save us down the road just can’t be accomplished with the available funds. It’s all good, just trying to make the best decisions we can based off of trusted opinions, level heads and splash of intuition.
