Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a really good weekend! I went into Charleston with my 2 daughters, Megan and Jenny. We went for lunch at The Butcher and Bee. I had a Bee-LT and it was so good! Jenny had ordered bacon-wrapped dates and we shared them because Megan doesn't like dates. They were excellent! We then left Charleston and stopped at a fabric store (the girls were making masks) and then did 2 more stops (Trader Joes and Costco). We went back to Megan's house to drop off her food, etc. and then we headed back home. It was a good day but I was really tired.
Saturday when I got home from Megan's the carpet guys were just finishing up the stairs and then they left. I cannot believe what a difference the carpet makes! I love that I am not walking on underlayment anymore! I really don't love shoes, so walking barefoot is just wonderful again! Here are some pictures:

|This is the front guest room. All that is in there now is an antique dresser. The box that is in the right side of the photo is the mattress for the bed.|
|This is the upstairs hallway.|
|My room will need the other nightstand put together and some art work for sure. It is looking good though.|
The contractor hooked up my refrigerator and stove on Friday!! That was major! I actually fried myself and egg yesterday for the very first time!! See photos below:
The hardwood flooring is all done now also! You can see some of it in the kitchen but here are other photos of it.
|This is the family room all done. I guess I'll have to go rug shopping!|
|This is the space going into the half bath downstairs.|
|This is going into the kitchen. That is where the stove was installed.|
Things are really moving along! Today the downstairs toilet will be installed, the dishwasher will be installed and the gas tankless water heater is being installed as I type this post! There really isn't too much left. The gutters, garage door and a few odds and ends and then it is complete! I have been doing this since May 1st and I am to the point where it needs to end, but I have to say the house is looking really good! I am so glad that I decided to take on this project. Now the decorating part will start! That is the FUN part!
Everyone have a wonderful day!
