🔻🔸🔻Wheatstone farm remodel🔸🔻🔸
FIVE months later, we completed the bulk of big projects by the end of November. We mopped Bona Traffic sealer on the plank fir flooring, as we backed our way out the front door–headed to a Thanksgiving getaway weekend.
We’re deeply, deeply tired. But have managed to complete six remodel projects: bump outs for our new living room and wood burning fireplace, converting a bedroom to an entryway, designing a new staircase, and creating a dormer for the upstairs bathroom, with subway tiled shower and clawfoot tub for our aching bods.
The holidays came and we had our first roaring fires and gathered our families and friends and neighbors and new remodel buddies –in for food and rest and reflection. Very cozy.
We’re exhausted but satisfied. There a dozens of smaller projects left. Those could take another year, bit by bit. For now, we need our daily lives back. Our painting, our music, our social lives, our quiet time. Our weekends.
Now it’s April. Our Winter rest felt so good. My new focus is the conversion of the garage to a dream art studio- where friends and community can come enjoy art making together!
