The work on the sun room is finally almost done. All that is left to do is some touch up stuff like getting vent covers, finishing the thresholds, some paint on the french doors, window treatments, getting a good rug, and the finding the right end tales. Not much left to do huh?
After installing the wood floors I think I may leave the rest of the undone floors in the house to the trained professionals. Apparently I had repressed the bad memories of doing the 1000 sq. ft. of flooring on the main level we did almost two years ago. This room was only 200 sq. ft. but the constant routine of get down, hammer in, get up, staple down, select next piece and repeat gets quite maddening. It is exacerbated by the 6 month old project foreman who only cares about having clean diapers, a full belly and regular naps.
Speaking of the project foreman, big thanks to my mom for coming up to baby sit for a weekend, allowing us to finish the floors and to go have dinner out two nights in a row!
We are pleased with how things turned out. We replaced the futon with a nice new couch, complete with motorized recliner. Since this will be our main “living room” we have to make it as comfy as possible right?
Another item of the major project list. Remaining on that list are the kitchen reno, master suite, and back deck. I look forward to the day when this house is finished and they can bury me in the back yard because its probably going to kill me. Just kidding!
As always check out the pics of the work as well as a few pics of Natalie sprinkled in:
For reference, here is what the room looked like when we bought the house:
