Well, I'm back! After a long vacation from the blogging world (I've had to move out of my apartment, take a final for one of my summer Master's courses, drive to Michigan, and maybe take a breath for a second, drive back to North Carolina, oh and still renovate a house), I am finally back with a few updates.
First, I bought some fixtures and learned how to install a light! Brian took the liberty to show me how to connect the electrical, and then went on to install my new ceiling fan. You can purchase my hallway lights and ceiling fans from the Home Depot.
The painting is almost complete for the five areas that can actually be painted at the moment (downstairs bedroom and bath, upstairs bedroom and bath, and the hallway). The trim still needs to be done, so just overlook that for now.
Also, the Thursday before I left for Michigan, my house was really feeling like an actual job site. My students volunteered themselves to destroy my master bathroom (they finished removing the cement board from the walls, sawed out the bathtub, and chopped down more of the closet), Terry-the-painter spackled his heart out, and the plumber, electrician, and handyman all came by to work on miscellaneous stuff.
And, a little sneak-peak of my first floor bathroom and the tile I just installed (yes, all me!!).
Hi! I'm Lauren! I'm a twenty-something teacher and homeowner in North Carolina. I love math, decorating, and getting down and dirty learning new things about home renovation and repair.
