We have reach the primary objective of the construction/addition! We are not completed yet… actually have quite a bit yet to do but… my mother is now living in my house.
Carpet went in on Tuesday…
padding goes in first, of course…
Yes, this padding is different, is is slightly thicker and made of recycled materials. Figured that since this is the first floor and no insulation under it, a “better” padding was worth it.
Carpet is down in my room. I will have to get an upclose photo sometime, it has some flecks of brown and red and really looks great with the fireplace and the tile.
Upstairs in those 2 room is a “greige” color carpet to go with the greige paint. In one room, with the white walls, the carpet looks beige. In the other room with the greige walls, the carpet looks more grey.
And there you have it a “little old lady” room as the kids noted. Yes, yes it is. She likes it. She approved of the location of the furniture. I will not comment on how many people it took to move that armoire nor how many bruises or pulled muscles or (possibly) swear words were involved. But it is here, and she is happy!
There is still some things I need to get transferred across town, but it will wait till after I get back from Savannah with the Scouts.
Her sitting room has a TV and will have some of her knick knacks in that corner. The teenager already declared it the rainy day game place. 🙂
The cats have already claimed the loveseat! This morning I saw a whole lot of hair on that brown coverlet.
Does my mother understand? Not fully. She told me she didn’t like the shower and was glad it wasn’t in her house. There is no other good option, so we will carry on and do our best.
I still have opportunities for you to help if you want to (not that anyone has offered very often)… but that will mainly be sorting and clearly 50 years of memories from her home and deciding what can move here and what cannot.
I am still not back into my room, but that will have to wait at least 2 weeks… gotta get stuff packed for the GS trip.
