Oh hey, remember me?! It has been way too long. Now that David is doing the majority of the work, our progress obviously depends on him.
Right when Eli finished camp, he got really sick. Awful fever, awful cough, it was the worst. Naturally, Dax got sick, and then just when you thought I would be the one to get sick, David got sick. He actually had it the worst. Eventually I got sick and we all just kept passing it back and forth.
Because of us all being out of commission, it made it kind of impossible to get stuff done around here. This weekend, we were finally back in action. David worked long and hard on the laundry room and got so much done. This room became a lot bigger of a project than we planned for so it’s also taking a lot longer to finish than we planned for.
Since the laundry room was previously a bedroom, it had a closet. We don’t really have a need for a closet, so we ripped it out, carpet and all. Still not sure if we will use the area to hang dry clothes, but I’m thinking that it’s a good space for that. The goal was to have the cabinets installed, they aren’t finished because there was a lot more to installing them than we anticipated. David built the bases for the cabinets to make them level with the washing machine and dryer. They don’t look “level” in this picture yet because he hasn’t finished screwing the levels on the legs of the cabinets, but I promise that they will be!
After looking at it, David thinks that he needs to raise the cabinets a little higher. I honestly can’t tell, but what’s one more thing to do? I think we decided on our counters, and after months and months and months, we finally decided and ordered wallpaper. We decided to go bold and fun since it’s a laundry room, but more on that later.
Hopefully now that we are all better, there will be more progress which means more blog posts. Stay tuned!
