Last Thursday our contractor finally arrived. He was scheduled to come a month ago, but you know how those things go. We’ve been pacing the floors waiting for him because we couldn’t do much until he did a few things. He took tons of measurements, installed a few boards to let us know where the walls would be, gave us a supply list and he was off.
Friday evening we got started on the mad dash to get the house ready to put on the market. We worked late into the night and until noon the next day installing the hardwood flooring. It’s the same kind we have throughout the main floor of the house.
On Saturday afternoon and evening we worked on a few other odd jobs that needed finished, like putting in the roof vents. Then we ran to the home improvement store to get supplies.
Sunday, Mr Chiots spend most of the day working on the electrical installation, while my friend and I painted trim and the doors.
Of course the foreman was always paying attention to make sure we were getting our work finished.
Mr Chiots and I are so happy that this final leg of the race has begun. We’ll be spending nearly every hour of every day on this project so the FOR SALE sign can be put in the yard this coming weekend. By finishing the upstairs our little house will no longer the two bedroom we’ve lived in for 10 years. It will be up for sale as a four bedroom, two and a half bath home. Hopefully whoever buys this lovely home will love it as much as we have.
