construction update ii

the construction is done, the contractor has been paid, and i’m still working on a few finishing touches: stripping layers and layers of paint from the heat register covers (i hadn’t planned on keeping them, but a miscommunication with the contractor resulted in me needing to keep the duct-work as-is, and i cannot find new replacements); installing dimmer switches and a new thermostat; replacing the pendant light i bought for the dining room that you see above: the shade doesn’t hang straight and the light output is too poor for me to work under at night.

but it’s almost finished! now i just need to furnish it. and find the money for the furnishings… the final reveal may be a month away…

    The shiny wood floor is beautiful. I see a lot of potential in your “new” place. So kind of your friend to model for you. Best wishes on pulling it together and making it yours.
