I’m getting really bad at this every other Tuesday thing…But anyway, there are exciting things going on in the Day household. We are moving into our house!
For those of you who don’t know, the property that Chris and I own has two buildings. The larger is a three bedroom, two bath house. The other building is a two car garage (which serves both buildings). Behind and attached to the garage is a studio apartment. Chris moved into the apartment when he bought the property 2 1/2 years ago, and has been renting the house out ever since. Our tenants have been great, but they just bought a house themselves and are turning in their keys today. We will be doing some renovation work and then moving into the house ourselves, a move that will take us a whole 10 feet!
Our refurbishment plans include painting the master bedroom, the other upstairs bedroom, and the ceiling of the living room. We will also be redoing the flooring in the entire house. Initially we had planned to install a laminate wood floor. That changed last weekend, when a floor-measuring trip into the house revealed that most of the house has a solid hardwood floor underneath the carpet, so we will most likely just refinish that. Interestingly, the living room appears to have plywood rather than hardwood. We will have to get the carpet fully removed and see if there is hardwood under the plywood to determine whether the living room will get laminate wood or not.
All this to say, we are really excited about the house. I will be sure to take some before and after pictures to show the transformation.
