Nothing To See Here Move Along


Sadly I have no new updates on the house. Everything right now is at a standstill due to money being needed elsewhere, like vehicle repairs. Barry’s work truck is out of commission right now to the tune of 4 or 5 grand, yikes! Which means he’s using our car which also means I am without wheels for most of the time. That certainly is no good! The sooner the truck gets fixed, the sooner I have a vehicle again, and the sooner we can start spending money and getting the house projects started…again.

As the saying goes “idle hands are the devils workshop”. So with nothing going on with the house I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and designing in my head in regards to the kitchen rebuild. I’m starting not to like the original idea that we came up with. Let me rephrase that, I love the idea of what we want to do I’m just not sure it’s the best way to go in regards to the flow of the house anymore. That and it may add a lot of unnecessary costs to the kitchen project.

What came to me about the original idea is the design basically cuts the kitchen and dining room off from the rest of the house. I have a new idea that I actually think Barry mentioned the first time around, but we’ll just say it was my idea.

Another thing that popped into my head is putting the dining room in the back most corner of the house means the room will get zero use. That would be fine if the house was bigger but we need to make the most out of the square footage that we have. Any wasted space or useless rooms will be a waste of time and money.

Back to the drawing board!

I shall have a new blog post soon explaining all the changes and ideas. Stay tuned…

    Whew, I’ve been worried something bad happened. Although having to live with one vehicle is bad, don’t get me wrong.
    Well, then while you were “gone” – I (we) started a house project. We are moving our bedroom downstairs. We’ve been upstairs for 34 years and have been talking about moving down for a while now. There’s only 1 bathroom in this house and it’s downstairs. No huge construction issues other than turning our little laundry room into a walk-in closet. We’re hoping this move will be complete by the end of this week.
    Nothing compared to what you guys are going through but a project in an old house non the less.

    Ok, I’ve waited as long as I possibly can but it’s been so long since you blogged.
    Is everything ok?

      Everything is good. Working on putting the plumping into the temporary kitchen as we speak. I should have an update coming in the next week or so, if all goes well.
