It has been 26 days since I did a Miller Manor post – how did that happen? Where has the time gone? Anyway, lots of things have happened but we still aren’t ready to move in. Honestly, I am afraid we are NOT going to make it by Christmas. There is still just so much to do 🙁
It seems like every time we pull off an old baseboard we find some rot or water damage in a wall! It is frustrating and feels like it is a massive money pit. I told them the other day that I am tiring of them ripping up my house! LOL! On the plus side, although these pictures don’t show it, the upstairs is REALLY coming along!! Seriously, we have painters there right now! I did a new video yesterday but need to get it edited and uploaded so you can see everything that has changed compared to the first video. 🙂
In the picture above, you can see the upstairs hall way before (left) and what it looked like a couple days ago! It has windows, actually has doors but they were removed for orange peel on the walls, and Kilz! Cool, right!?
I am so ready for them to give me an actual date because I want to get internet, phone, cable, real power, etc all set up. I also want to know if we will be in by Christmas because at this point we have no tree in our house and no place to put one. We are living in a world of boxes and I am SICK of it. But, what else can we do?
On a good note, I just might be doing flooring this weekend upstairs!!
QUESTION: Is it tacky to register for a house warming party?
