All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible....

Day 6 of Construction

Today was our 6th day of construction and I am really amazed at the progress we are making...at least on the inside. We have started priming to get ready for the paint and we have even started the tile in the bathroom.

Josh and I want to move into the house in 3 weeks. This is a pretty lofty goal but hopefully we can make it happen. We won't move 100% because my Mom, Sister and Brother are flying in from WA in a little over three weeks and that house is not big enough for all 7 of us. So we'll be staying where we are until they leave. But we do plan to empty our stuff out my MIL's basement and our storage units and start decorating the house. All we have here is a night stand, dishes and our TV's. All of that can be moved later. It will be nice to free up the $150 we spend for the storage units too.

Here are some recent pictures of the house:


I am especially excited about the tile. The bathroom is finally starting to resemble a bathroom. We are going a little tile "crazy". We brought the tile to the ceiling around the tub and we are bringing it up 3 feet on the rest of the walls. We did a brick pattern for a more custom look.

I'm loving all the updates! Can I tell you how much this makes me want to work on another house. It's not like ours doesn't have projects of it's own, but there's something about a blank slate that is so appealing! It looks great! I can't believe how much you are accomplishing in such a short period of time!
