Welcome to our house.
The day after we moved in, we figured it would be fun to have a video capturing the untouched beauty of this 1971 original renovation project.
Please don’t judge the mess. We’re still unpacking. I apparently thought I had unpacked more than I really had when I said the kitchen was basically done. Looking back, it was far from it. But – it had come a long way !
Also, please excuse the congested nose noises… I wasn’t dealing with my “house allergies” very well yet.
I’m already enjoying looking back on our yard. What a disaster it was. There was water pooling in the low spots. The spruce tree took up a large part of our yard. The grass had started seeding. It was Lisa-knee-height deep. And the garden ! Those weeds ! A good reminder that the weeding done this weekend made a big difference.
And then, there is the basement. I ran through that space in a second video – and it’s being uploaded (but taking forever… am I doing something wrong on YouTube?? 224 minutes to upload 2 videos that total 7 minutes? Really??).
UPDATE ! Two hours later, this short basement video is now ready for your viewing pleasure.
The basement is basically wide open, partially finished with a lot of storage space. We had the happy surprise of finding that it had central vac. Which was there the whole time, but we didn’t notice it, I guess.
OH – the basement has carpeted teleposts. Ramps up the class of this place by at least 14 points! The accordion wall is on a whole other level for class points.
Alright, gotta go. I have wallpaper to strip so that Lee can build our master walk-in closet and I can get an electrician in so that I can get have our ceilings done so that I can get new carpets so that I stop sounding like Kermit the Frog.
