Exterior lights, Spice boxes and dance floors

Busy weekend but didn't feel as productive as I would have liked.  Tom got the three lights in front of the garage installed. As well as the lights outside the master bedroom, garage man-door and craftroom. He also did some electrical stuff inside, but I'm not sure exactly what... Maybe he'll blog sometime?? :)

A major milestone was achieved this weekend.  After almost 14 years, I no longer have spice boxes in my dining room. I now have 2 spice drawers (one for savory spices and one for baking) plus a cupboard just for the Costco-sized containers. This makes me ridiculously happy.


Last but not least, Miss Hailey has decided that my craftroom is the perfect dance studio for her to take pics and videos for her YouTube and Instagram accounts. She's not going to be happy when my stuff starts moving in... :)

Casing & molding started

Amanda & I started it off by doing all the measuring & cutting for her room. Then she and dad nailed it up.

Such a bright and cheerful room... Makes me happy!

Then Hailey and I did the same for her room.

Meanwhile, Tom did the door casings:

And we are just about ready for carpet upstairs!

Craftroom flooring

So my project this weekend was the Pergo flooring in the craftroom. Once Tom showed me how it goes together, there was no stopping me. It is all done except for the small area of the bathroom where the toilet & cabinet will be. I'm kinda happy with how it turned out. Just needs a good mopping and Hailey can use it as a dance floor until we move in. :)

The two round thing in the middle of the floor are outlets for embossing tools, etc when I have stamping classes. *tee*hee*

Happy Anniversary

21 years ago I married this man. We were madly in love then. Today we are a bit greyer and a lot wiser and possibly more in love than the day we married.  I don't get flowers often. Like, ever. But today we came out to the real house and he surprised me with flowers and a lovely card. Happy anniversary, My love.

We hung the hall closet door.

Then we got our butts kicked by the double doors to the den. Stupid screws in the top of the doors... One stripped out and derailed the install. Quick post and then back at it!

Vapor barrier started

The girls & I started laying the plastic vapor barrier in the craftroom yesterday. We will try to get the flooring itself started this week. Too much going on... I just want to work on this house! :-)

First interior doors installed

We started with our closet door so if we screw it up, nobody else would know. ;-)
But we did alright...

Then we did the wc in our bathroom.  Yay! Privacy!!!

Painting molding

We rearranged the paint rack to make it easier to move around the garage and painted another batch of molding. We now have door casing and baseboards ready to be cut and installed. After the interior doors are hung... So much still to do...

And apparently, Indie didn't get the memo that she's an OUTSIDE dog...
