Day 17 and into home stretch

It is done! No applause yet as there is still cleanup and put back together left to do. Mr Experience finished the grout today and I laid the last of the tile under the sink today. We wanted to make it neat and clean and there were some old holes in the floor that I had stuffed with steel wool and plastic bags to keep the mice out and the heat in. Sealing up the floor of this compartment fixes all those problems and makes it look better and easier to clean. A total win all around. We put most of the tools away and went to go work on one of my mom’s rentals. This is good as the grout now needs to rest for 72 hours before we can do the final cleanup on it.

I will need to wash the kitchen walls behind the fridge and the built in shelves made out of old doors. We will have to trim the doors to get them to fit. I had holes cut in them for the light switch and the outlet and now that we have changed the floor height they will need to be trimmed, that will happen on Friday or Saturday. The border collies will have to sleep in the laundry room tonight as the hallway grout got touched up again today and it needs to dry.

We want to save up for the wooden trim and do the whole house at once. We talked about this today and depending on our sheep buyer we may have the money much sooner than the end of the year. Annmarie will know in a few weeks.

We are incredibly happy with how the floors have turned out. It totally changes the appearance of our entire downstairs. Now we are picking new paint colors for downstairs. Hopefully we can have the entire downstairs painted in the next six weeks also. If only I could come up with the trim money in the next six weeks, Annmarie?
