It's been several weeks...

{click post title to view all photos}

Weeks have passed and here we are... still need to prime the trim in the main level in almost every room, then paint it, then paint the walls, then clean from top to bottom and finally get all set up and settled in. I have just been overwhelmed by coming into my house and seeing what is left to be done. I am so. close. to. finishing. but I am so *over* picking away at the project. It's not that it isn't fun to get it finished the way I want and its not that I think I can just stop working on it and it will get finished on its own (though I have greatly desired that to be the case) but I am just being real... after months of slow remodeling you reach a point where you are just, done.

Happy day though! While I was away in Colorado on a trip my kitchen cabinets were installed by the MyNextHome crew. That is incredibly exciting and encouraging. Isn't it lovely?! Ah! I just love it. I still need to find a countertop, get that ordered and installed so that the appliances can go in (and get out of my dining room!). I think too that I really want to install white subway tiles on the wall where the stove is going to go. I just love white subway tiles in a kitchen. We'll see how much that would cost... maybe I'll do it down the road.

Basically all that I accomplished today was sweeping and covering up the furniture and laying down a bit of plastic in preparation for finishing the prime work in the living room. For the first time ever though I just sat and hung out at my house... there, on my denim couch on the front porch. Haha! Kinda hick but still, it was lovely to just sit on my front porch and talk to my childhood best friend for an hour or two. I can't wait to live here.

Next week Momma has many days off and has committed to spending them on my house getting it all finished. If all goes according to plan -- and, as you have noticed I am sure, things just don't always go according to plan in a remodel -- I will be hanging art and drapes and putting away my dishes and clothes in the Little House next week this time. Exciting thought!!

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 …
