Now that we live in the house, we have fewer visitors. And I know that makes people wonder what state the house is in, since we both repeat that the house is not complete.
The main floor is the part of the house that is….sparse. But I wouldn’t trade living in a sparse house for anything.
Sometimes when I’m sitting in an unfinished part of the house, I imagine a time lapse of all the pieces being completed around me. But the reality of what Tyler completes is always better than my imagined time-lapse.
Tyler is doing lots of finishing work. For example, I mentioned the possibility of shelves in the laundry closet, and he went right out and started installing and then building and painting shelves. Damn, building a life with that man is the best decision I’ve ever made.
What’s left to do? It’s all finishing. Once the windows and doors are all cased (including the broken window that needs to be completely replaced) and the floor is down; the rest of the project is peanuts compared to what it use to be. Yes, there is a whole bathroom on the main floor to complete, but the remainder is painting and cabinets and furniture and finishing the stairs.
I hope if you are around, you stop by for some coffee or some tea and see it for yourself. It’s a little dusty, but it’s my heaven on earth. God knows we could all use a little heaven.
