House Stuff

So, for those who haven’t talked to me lately, it’s because I’ve been working on my house.

Completed:
Back room floor cleaned
Back room floor stained
Back closet floor stained
Back room walls and ceiling painted
Back closet painted
Back room trim painted and reinstalled
Back room electrical fixtures replaced/repainted (with the exception of one outlet cover that seems to have disappeared. I expect to find it someday)
Essentially the back room is done

East half of basement floor scraped. This was a massively sucky project. There was an adhesive that had to be scraped up. The east end was the worst part because it adhered more then than the west end. Nevertheless, the west end scraping still sucks.

I just had to look at this to see what I have already done because it seems like this is never-ending. Sigh.

  1. Hey, this list looks so familiar.

    We’ve been stalled at miter and install trim for… oh, all summer. Our basement is only halfway done; I’ve been staring at the bottle of crack sealer for a month or so. And we still haven’t started on the hallways.
