Sorry I’ve been a little MIA this past week, I was down in Atlanta for the Haven DIY bloggers conference. It was so much fun seeing old friends and new and hanging out with other crazy bloggers like myself! I had so much fun in fact, I took approximately 4 lame photos because I was too busy chatting to actually document anything. So just imagine me having lots of fun living it up with all your favorite DIY bloggers and of course studiously taking notes in the classes learning how to improve this little ole blog.
Before I left we had some big news (finally) for the sunroom….
the windows came!!
Insert me jumping up and down clapping my hands like a 5 year old on Christmas.
They were the right size and going in beautifully – hooray!
Then came time to put the slider door in…
and it was the wrong size…
it’s like the grinch stole Christmas, without the cute little dog with antlers to soften the blow.
So now we are waiting another 2 weeks for the new door to come in, you know approximately day 2,036 of construction on this quick 4 week project.
I snapped a few photos this morning since the polar vortex has apparently returned in July with a 65 degree rainy day and we are stuck inside. So pardon the gloomy lighting and gray clouds.
Here’s what it looks like from the living room – we still have this weird temp wall holding up the ceiling, because they need to install the new header yet.
You can see the baskets I ordered below the windows, I got 6 of them and they will be built into the window seat along this wall. I brought 2 out so you can kind of get a visual.
The new windows in our master bedroom!! Well not new, this is the old door from the dining room downstairs with new transom windows surrounding it. This was a huge money saver for us, since originally we were going to do 2 sets of slider doors upstairs until we saw the $$$.
It looks like this from the outside. As you can see it really changes the whole look of our house and I’m so excited about it.
As you can see we have a ways to go and it has been kind of a bummer on our summer. It’s a little hard to have those lakeside bbq’s when your backyard looks like this.
So if you are wondering why you haven’t been invited over to party, it’s for your own good :)
Oh and the electricians were here! Everything is all wired up and ready to go and they even moved my dining room light over for me.
I’m sure I’m the electrician’s favorite person ever.
They were always in the wrong spot to begin with, (miscalculation on my part) but once we swapped out the door for a window they were really wonky. So now my crazy obsession with symmetricalness is complete, all the planets have aligned, all is right with the world and my lights are hanging above my actual table vs hovering over in the middle of the room.
I know I have issues.
Cross your fingers the inspector shows up tomorrow and insulation happens later this week, which means we could possibly be laying our floors this weekend! In which case say a little prayer that the Mr. and I are still talking to each other on Monday :)
