Today marks the beginning of the fifth week of works at my new house, and feelings are on the surface, what it has been done, looks amazing, I love the way things are shaping up , I feel so good in the house, and we, the kids an I, have so much fun in the afternoons in the back yard close to the lake. But the difficult part is, I really don’t feel in the last two weeks we have done as much as we should have, time is running and i feel left behind. There is so much to be done.
Remember the list at the bottom of last week post, nothing has been accomplished, the finish is not ready and painting in the inside is a dream far fetched, the bathrooms are mostly ready, in terms of finishes, but are missing the installation of fixtures, then not usable, outside Juan Carlos and I removed the shutters of the front windows, and that is about it. The double door in the master bedroom is in process to be installed.
I thought everything was under control, but this week I have felt powerless. The bathroom contractor, did not wanted to install the doors, no idea why, he finally did it today, the main house contractor is feeling the money pressure now and does not have enough people working in the house, I am at a cross roads now, trying to decide what the next step is going to be. At the end the most important tasks to be done before moving are to finish and paint the interior and install the new floor, the rest can mostly be done by us, already moved in. We have the good fortune, the Juan Carlos can do a lot of things, but how much, its a balance, that I am guessing won’t be in his favor, sorry love.
Today we are going to meet the flooring contractor to begin the demolition, Tomorrow, we will buy the pantry doors, return some items in Ikea and pick a kitchen cabinet they did not have in stock last time, and check the as-is department, buy the sink and faucet of the powder room, and if i can kidnap my husband, begin the never ending list of to-dos i have for him. Hopefully next week will be better, positive.
If i see only this video,
And the first one i posted, I will be so happy, but the day to day running is making me crazy, and…..
