We have officially moved out of the house and have been doing a kitchen renovation for 4 weeks. The person who did – you can read it all here if you want) said it would take 5-6 weeks to complete. It’s rare that construction or kitchen renovations are done this way. Excited.

The hardwood floors came in, the floors were leveled, the plumbing, HVAC, and electricity were done as we spoke. I’m not saying that it brought surprises.

You may remember I said our kitchen was pretty slanted. I had to place the eggs strategically and they rolled off the counter.so we knew Something It was happening in the back corner of one of our houses. But when we opened up the space to investigate, we discovered that most of the back wall of the house had literally been shed over the years. was floating in the air and untethered. We are all shocked that a refrigerator has never fallen off the floor (really).

I should have been stressed by this discovery, but I was strangely relieved. We knew something was up but finally got some answers so we could go ahead and fix everything. It’s been dealt with.I’m really excited to move on and know it’s no longer a concern. Luckily we knew that Something We had to get back there so that time would be taken into account at the start. Our contractor never missed a beat and luckily we were never late.

In addition to that fun find, we also discovered a full-height basement space under the kitchen. I was always told that the kitchen was an addition and was built as a slab on the existing grade. This was completely new information as it meant there was no basement underneath. I’m sure it’s a place where ghosts hang out. My house is 130 years old. This is a very interesting find, and although this space is currently inaccessible, it may be possible to open it from below. This is something that we may investigate further at some point. A brand new room! I know who you are! But also I have so many questions. why are you on board? I’d also like to know… I’m also curious now as to what else our house is hiding.

Not much to see until this point, but we’re in the final stages of the project and all real Excitement is on me. I’ll be back for sure with more updates as things progress. just say the words.

ps – Post updates more timely if you haven’t followed yet. Instagram story. Instagram is admittedly a bit disappointing these days. Unless you interact with my content regularly (comments, shares, etc.), it’s likely that you won’t see it in your feed. So add my account to your favorites if you want to see everything.

(^I know this sounds desperate, but I’m working on getting emotionally divorced from Instagram.. I have no interest in playing their games.That’s why my main focus is and will always be my blog. I still share regularly, but when I feel called out or inspired only MeRemoved all pressure. If you follow me, you will find that you can’t see my content. Adding it to your favorites tells Instagram that you want to see it, even if you don’t engage with it regularly.)
