Renovation Realities: Progress!!

So over the last week, there has been a ton of action at the house.  We still have a long way to go before it’s pretty but I’m so excited to see actual progress.

Here’s what’s happened in the last 6 days:

A lead abatement company came and removed all the tile that contained lead.

New windows were installed.

New plumbing has begun.

The new ceiling fixtures in the bedrooms are wired.

All the walls (and ceiling) in the bedrooms and hall have been skim coated and just waiting on one coat to make it super smooth.

Wish me luck because the next week is going to be crazy as it’s the last 10 days before we move in to this mess.  We have inspections, tile installations, more skim coating, etc. that all has to get done in the next week.  And to top it off, I had the audacity to plan a trip starting in the middle of the week and won’t be around for 4 days while the guys work.  I know it’s pure genius 🙂

Happy Monday!!
