As we pause with our interior renovations, we figure that we might as well make it comfortable. What do you think?

iPhone Rendering

Our eldest child drew the LBH on my phone using a drawing app. I told her I'd post it on my blog. It's dreamy - I love it!

Spring Cleaning

I spent some time cleaning up at the LBH. Here's what the parlour looked like when I arrived. The drywall looks great. 
Here is the kitchen... Yikes! As you can see, it's a disaster. Our contractor will be removing debris and cleaning it up soon; he promised!
Below, you can see the front bedroom after I moved the furniture into the parlour. I cleaned up in there and applied a coat of floor paint. Before:
The parlour has now been scrubbed and mopped. Our furniture is back on there so we can enjoy the room once again. We are going to take a break from our interior renovations for a while and save up our pennies for the next phase. We will focus on exterior painting for this summer. Lots more photos coming soon!

Over a Hurdle

We've got drywall! I can't believe it, but the walls are done. Our contractor has done an amazing job. He finished the last layer of insulation, installed plywood ceilings, drywalled, mudded & primed in the parlour and front bedroom.

Long gone are the days of mouse poo falling on our heads from cracks in the ceiling wallpaper. Ha!

I'm stunned by the result and I feel as if we've cleared a major hurdle. Look!

Parlour and Bay Window

I just want to enjoy this feeling for a bit. Lots more to do, but I feel happy at how far we've come.
