One day til deadline...

I had my little sister and brother come in early with me and together we did deep cleaning in the upstairs. Lots of sweeping, dusting, window washing and bathroom scrubbing. They didn't want to be there but they worked diligently anyway and I was encouraged by their help. I was tickled pink to use my Swiffer for the first time in my Little House. When the kids went home I bought outlet covers and put those on, put all the doors back by their proper doorways to be hung back up soon, and put out the curtains and rods. I couldn't help but put out a few decorative things as well once the bathroom was tidy enough.

Downstairs the guys were hard at work finishing so many jobs. The wiring, sheetrock sanding, priming, trim hanging, crown-molding hanging and spackling and priming. They prepared the kitchen floor for the vinyl and cleared out as much their tools and piles of trash as was possible. Everything was prepared for paint by the time they were done there that day.

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 …
