While I was out of town teaching in Indiana last week, Steve made progress on the shed. I’ll share more pictures of that later because today I want to show you how the work inside the house is coming now that ‘stuff’ has been moved to the shed.
Here’s the bathroom, before cleaning and painting…
And the bigger bedroom, downstairs…
And the room that used to be way too full of the ‘stuff’ that is now in the shed, or that has gone to metal recycling, or that just had to be thrown out… There was a lot of stuff in this room!
You know, elbow grease and paint will help any interior. The bathroom still needs a toilet paper holder and towel rack (or 2), but that can come later. It’s getting a new toilet in a week or two (yay!).
This bedroom is in good shape now. It just needs a couple of bed platforms, a night stand for the lamp, and maybe some sort of table to put stuff on. Steve has to tape and bed the other bedroom (that used to be the storage room) before I can paint it.
Steve built a cabinet-high table on locking casters to make the kitchen more usable. It will look better when his tools are off of it :-). He used reclaimed wood which was nice.
Since there isn’t a refrigerator in the house, we figured the bottom shelf would be a great place to put coolers and the top surface will be good for food prep.
After 2 days of work, my hands are sore. I’m glad I don’t have more jobs to do until the other room is ready to paint. Steve, on the other hand, is still cleaning up the site, building bed platforms, and whatever else it is that he can do better than I can. Everybody needs project, right?
I’ll post a few more pictures tomorrow, and then later in the week or next week.
