Moving home happens in December. We don’t know what day yet, but we know we’ll be in before 2021. Today is less than two weeks to December, so it’s officially the final countdown to the final countdown!
This week, we approved all of the paint color selections, both interior and exterior.
I’ve come to the conclusion recently that I’m not renovating a house. Turns out I’m building a whole new house which just happened to have three existing exterior walls.
We just hit three months living in this rental house. In the longest year of the history of the world, three months feels like an eternity. The four or five months left here seem equal to infinity and beyond.
I’m looking at a ton of other home design IG accounts to get a sense of what’s out there, what’s getting traction, and how I might fit into the seemingly endless sea of beautiful rooms.
Justin’s and my design styles live on a wide spectrum. He goes hard mid-century modern. I exist anywhere from transitional to eclectic to contemporary and modern. Our home will definitely feel mostly modern, but hopefully pulls in enough other design and style elements to make it feel unique and just like us.
Demo on the house started on April 7. The cement footings for the addition were poured June 4. So goes home construction.
I snuck to the house during nap time to check on progress. Not much has happened in the last week, but it gave me a chance to survey the guts of the house before new footings and framing begins (hopefully) this week. It’s also the most available way I have to show what the house looked like before since I didn’t take any photos or videos before we moved out in April.
