Rounding Third...

and heading home!!

In 4 weeks to be exact!!!

I know long time no blogpost but with selling the townhome we got really busy !!

We have lots to add since last post.

Paint is on, lights are installed (mostly) , Flooring including tile installed, Doors, molding,
Cabinets and countertops.

The laminate on the rental was installed by Jayson and his dad and mom! We also decided to install the closets ourselves, which should be fun!


 The house has dark red hardiboard..like a red wine colour. 
All the house is coloured after food.

Xen's Bedroom closet doors. 


Granite countertops in the kitchen.


Kitchen with dark bottom counters and white on top which was a big risk that i think pays off!


 The dining room chandelier which i got half off at Pine Lighting.

Bedroom with a dropped ceiling and robin egg blue colour.

Hallway shelf in the corner.

Kids Bathroom with fun checkered tile floor.

Bedroom with door to ensuite and walk in closet. 

The downstairs rental suite kitchen. Pretty huge !!


Well that's all for now.
Really not much to do except get a couple more appliances this weekend for the rental suite and get the rest of the appliances from the storage.

Drywall dust is in the air!




 The Drywall stage was very encouraging! I suddenly felt like it was a home when you don't see the framework anymore or the electric wires hanging everywhere. Plus it was a whole lot less drafty!

 The Hardyboard we ordered is being put onto the garage this week! You can see the colour we choose finally! It is a bit hard to see in the light here but it is a dark red colour. In person it seems like more of a burgundy in the light. I was worried it would be too bright but i am happy with the colour!
You can also see the window is actually like a mini greenhouse, it sticks out and has a shelf for plants.
The door on the garage is from jays's dad who works at Centra Windows, this one has a blind on the inside the glass.

Mostly the house is actually not been on our mind as much as getting my current house ready to be listed up for sale! May 9th we are listing! EEEEEE!
