Where I left things on Friday...

{click post title to view all photos}

My back porch and back door (which is going to be changed out for a door that swings the right way) were in. Practicality and functionality was the main point of them. As long as they were safe and useable for the crew to haul in materials, that was what mattered when I left.
My basement stairs were ripped out so they could be replaced. Aesthetically, as well as safety-wise, it will be so nice to have new stairs to the basement.

John, one of the sheetrock and painting experts on the MNH crew, was working through the endless job of second coating everything with paint on it. He had caulked and patched and skim coated wherever needed it, primed the teal closet in the little bedroom (!!), and put the first coat of paint on the hallway built-in. I can't say how relieving it was to be able to walk away and know that the next time I went in, all the paint would be finished upstairs.

Meanwhile, the real work begins in my main level. Framing was being completed and sheetrock was going to be put up while I was away, both in the kitchen + back entry, as well as in the basement rooms. Soon enough everything will be ready for paint on the main floor! Also, paid for the cabinets for the kitchen right before going out of town. So, the order is being processed and should arrive in time for our deadline!

little house THREE

December 27, 2014 I moved into Little House TWO and began cleaning, painting, and decorating it. Exactly two years later my husband, of just less than a year, and I -- seven months pregnant, and our Great Pyrenees dog, Barley James, moved into Little House THREE. When we moved out of the second Little House we sold most of our furniture and purged out a lot of other belongings. What we had left -- with the latest addition of a few practical pieces of furniture and some things for Baby O -- is what we unpacked into the third Little House. The apartment you see is as we found it except for three small improvements: hanging a towel hook near the sink in the bathroom, as well as the pot and the knife rack in the kitchen. A small apartment that isn't much to look at and our minimal belongings have come together to make a very cozy home -- just in time for us to become a three-some.

Before >> little house FOUR

At the same time that we were about to move into what would become Little House Three God spoke to Luke and I separately. He told Luke to move us to Kansas City in a short amount of time, and He told me that He had "just the place" for us. As we moved forward with the Kansas City leading we spent ample time house hunting. Adventure after adventure for months with nothing actually coming together. We took the leap anyway and ended up moving into this place sight-unseen the day we moved to KC. I had scrolled through some of the images of this townhouse on the property manager's website but had passed it by knowing it was out of our budget. When the place we'd applied for wasn't a good fit though the guys offered us this place at a slight discount. Turned out to have been vacant for some time and while the amenities sell it it was dated and worn, as you can see below. Still, it was the place I had dreamed of and better still for it to be a project -- a blank slate …
