We spent the weekend painting, painting, painting.

T and I spent 3 hours Friday night and another 2 Saturday morning doing nothing but prep--pulling nails, sanding and cleaning walls, pulling out miscellaneous switches and other nonsense.

T, Meg and Lauren worked upstairs:

Theresa working on the closet, where there was an old alarm box mounted on the wall

Meg and Lauren rock!

I worked downstairs on the bordello room,

with occasional help from T:

Yes, this really is the same room

Yesterday, the new floors got started

New house!

We got the keys to our new house on Wednesday, February 21!

As you can see, it's going to need a small amount of attention before we move in, like repainting the bordello room:

And reflooring the master bedroom:

And doing a little demolition to get the fridge into this nook in the corner of the kitchen (which we now know is possible thanks to T's super accurate chest-arm measurement system):

There are some long-term projects as well, like remodelling the kitchen:

And the dining room:

And not least of all, once again ridding ourselves of the fading pink bathroom:

So why did we let ourselves in for all this work? How about waking up to these views every morning!
