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.

Yes, the {first} Little House is finished -- well, as much as a remodel is ever "finished", that is. But this is hardly the last you will see of it. Come on in and take a look!
