As many of you know, and have thankfully listened to my whining. Jim and I are having the upstairs of our very old house remodeled. One of the things that drew us to this house was that the former owners did very little in the way of updates. Ok, did nothing in the way of updates to the house. We thought that they left us with some nice bones to work with. Under the plaster was, well, a disaster.
Luckily we found a great contractor, Bob Morton. Jim and I work crazy hours and couldn't handle every little thing ourselves. Bob really stepped up and handled all the plumbing upgrades, weird electrical things, down right lack of adequate duct work and vents, and came up with a cool way to repair the whole roof not really being attached to the house thing.
What was a three, four week job is on it's fifth week, going on it's sixth. Yes, things have cost more than we expected. Yes, we figured most of this into our budget before we started. I just really want to have a bed room and not sleep in the living room. Jim and I know we're going to be in this house for a while. We have awesome neighbors and are in a great community. This project is going to make our house much more comfortable for us.
We can see the end, and like we hoped for in the beginning. This little house has potential. You just have to coax it out.
