I am very impressed by his tenacity, as I could only have handled about 3 hours at most. Thanks to Jeremy's cousin's hubby Rob in Edmonton for being an awesome interior-decorating wingman, hanging out in Tile and Lighting stores with Jeremy for an entire (very long) Saturday!
I know I have been more than vocal about my kitchen floors (it still hurts). Cutting them out was extremely hard, I have trouble envisioning the completed project without them.
|Unbelievable, that this is only one area.|
It has taken us so long to get up to the resurfacing of the renovation because of all the things that go on behind the scenes, or walls in this case. Things like puzzling through the literal rats nest of wires that existed in the basement. To properly give an idea of what I'm talking about, imagine NEVER tripping a breaker when the fridge, microwave, toaster, and truck block heater (at -40C) are all on the same circuit. A disaster waiting to happen indeed.
Jeremy, with his OCD in overdrive, has remedied the situation, rewiring the entire house and bringing it into the proper century and up to code to boot.
I have been desperately trying to get the drywall done (motivation being my biggest opponent), and with Jeremy at my back the entire time asking if I'm done yet it has been a rough go. Luckily my mother came for a visit and helped to drive the project forward... until we had a beer or two.... Oh well, I don't get to see her enough as it is, so to hell with renos for a while. Life can't come to a halt... well, a complete halt anyhow. We did end up getting the drywall sanding done, yelling across the house with the shop vac going. A good visit all in all.
- Complete Painting (pick a colour... Ugh)
- Lay Tile and Grout
- Build Cabinets
- Install Cabinets
- All the other little crap in between.
