And The Renos Keep Going

Me Bad.... I haven't posted here in over a week!!! I have been busy between work and renos to the house by the time I get home from work I am a zombie and I just want to fall into a cold chunk on the couch!!!!

But I do have more photos to share with you all on the progress of the house! I found out today that there are more changes and things torn up and taken out since these photos below such as the fireplace is now out of the house !!!!!! wooo hoooo!! alas that wall can now be plastered and painted!!! Yippeeee!! I also have no bathroom vanity as we are ordering a new one this week.

In the photos you will see that my master bedroom is now painted completely! Also my living room/dining room and hallway has got the first lick of paint on them. I heard today that the Double Chocolate has gone on in the kitchen!! I can't WAIT to see that one! I also chose a nice ceramic tile to go in the bathroom. I can't WAIT to move in!!! Unfortunately it could be another month before we can. Trevor and I are heading out to Vancouver for a 12 days 2 weeks from tomorrow. Hopefully we can move in shortly after our little vacay. Errr well providing everything else gets done. I still have alot of plans for my sewing room, which right now is where all the old boards, trim, cardboard, old curtains and junk to be thrown out are living. I suppose one of these days I will see that room cleared out and torn out right to make a "real" sewing room out of it!!! :)

So without further ado... here are some photos!

The Kitchen is not looking much like a kitchen yet... But soon. All the ceilings are now freshly painted!!

The Master Bedroom. This photo makes the walls look grey, but they do have a lighter grey/cream look to them

The two closets in the Master Bedroom. All my trim is a nice light shade of cream. It's actually called Cream Puff. Yep, if you were crazy enough you could just lick my trim and doors the colour is so delicious!!! LOL

One angle of the living room.. The far wall will be my accent wall.. Now that the fireplace and mantel are gone, that wall should be painted by the end of this week. I can't WAIT to see the contrast colour!

Another angle

oohhh there is my painter fella. He is doing a fabulous job! And what a steady hand he has! He is only 26 years old and has been painting for the last 6-7 years. He is the kind of fella that if he doesn't like how it looks he keeps at it until he is happy with the finished look. He is a real perfectionist. Good quality to have. He loves what he does and it shows! Thanks Larry!

My front entrance!! Look no more gaudy wallpaper!!! I think I am going to replace that light fixture too by the time I am done. I want something a little more modern and contemporary there now.

Mum's basement apartment bathroom. She just had this beautiful vanity and sink installed over the weekend! Ooh and new flooring put down too. Right now her toilet is still in the tub!! hee hee I hope she has good aim down that hole in the floor!!! LOL

I haven't had a chance to get much sewing in, but I did manage to sew a little bit of my crumb quilt. I am now working on making a border of crumbs to go around the quilt. It is going to take me some time, but I am in no hurry. I am figuring by the time I get all the renos done to this house and I'm moved in, I will be broke and have to stick to making scrap quilts for a while LOL.. NAHHhhhhhh I still have to have "mad money" to ease my fix from time to time!! I'm a fabricaholic!!! There is no cure! I will ALWAYS need to buy new fabrics LOL

Til Next Time!
