Finally, another update, right?! I just know all of you have been patiently waiting by your screens to see what is going on with The Ashland House. Well, plumbing and electric are almost complete! Framing of the interior walls is also complete (as far as I know). The kitchen design is almost finalized and the appliances have been purchased. Oh, I also picked out all the plumbing fixtures and the new roof shingles. The sky lights have arrived and will be installed in conjunction with the new roof. The roofers will start within the next week. All of the windows and rear exterior door have been ordered. Those should be installed in October.
All of that progress and yet I have a slight case of the sads because it’s not likely we will be in by the first of the year. It is what it is. The two things I have continually heard from “everyone” are:
#1. You will go over budget and
#2. You will not be able to move in by the date you were originally given.
I realize I have 2 options:
Option #1. Be stressed
Option #2. Be grateful
Of course I’m going with option #2!!! I am so grateful that our family is fortunate enough to have the opportunity to do these amazing things such as rehab a house, send our child to a good school, have careers that we enjoy – you get the picture. Most importantly we are healthy. Good news! Woo hoo! Yippee!
Thanks for reading and Have a Joyful Day!
