A Witch's View - Rehab Continues

So this week a lot of progress was made on the house. Hubby has been painting, sweeping, framing and so much more.  We are both so looking forward to my upcoming vacation.  We're actually taking a full on trip away from the house that doesn't include working in any shape or form.  If we stay on schedule my PTO begins in one week and we'll be hitting the open road for a a wonderful trip out west.

We both love the southwest so our plan is to pack up the RV and spend some time in New Mexico. We have always wanted to go and now is a wonderful time as the weather begins to get colder here on the east coast, for us to kick off our grand adventure.  

Back back to the house.  After our recovery from our hired painter, we have been able to clean up the walls enough to get the paint on and the molding complete.  Hubby has been a trooper getting through all this.   I have a few items left to sell and I'll be setting those out today as well as finishing up my yard work.

Here's a few photos of the work he finished this week.  Remember we're still in construction mode so there is still a bunch of cleaning to do. 

This coming week we're finishing up the painting, starting on the flooring and then we'll be working on the outside of the house.

This is the hallway. Cleaned off the kitchen trim finally that our "painter" applied to all the door jams and the wainscoting in the hall.  It was a tough job but hubby finally cleaned up this guys mess.

 This was my office. We have finished the painting (we, Maggie and Eli) and next we just need to install the flooring.

 We had to take down the bathroom light fixture and repair the wall and then apply paint.  Our "painter" decided to put the kitchen trim paint in the bathroom.  That will be fixed.  I'm not really sure why he did that.  But that's why we're doing it ourselves now.

These are the finished cabinets with "moose mouse"  colored cabinets and new handles. I thought they were really pretty.  We are leaving the fridge and stove as is.

It has been an interesting and fun project. I'm working full time, and not able to focus on BaubleSmith or this project fully.  Hubby has been carrying the load and getting the job done.  It is pretty amazing. Tune in next week for flooring!!
