Ok, so after paving the front porch in bricks, finishing the floors and painting the walls in the future living and dining rooms, and putting a coat of paint on all the trim, we then declared that we needed to live in this space once again!

Here is a taste of what we have accomplished… details to follow!

The living room still needs a second coat of paint on all the trim and some finish carpentry around the window sashes. Otherwise, it is pretty much finished (except we have some new furniture needs with all the space).

The dining room needs a new front door (to replace the 1950s vintage door) and a door to the basement installed.

Also, we think we have figured out the colors for the stairs. The trim will be a paler shade of yellow with the newel post and balusters matching the trim and walls, respectively.  The steps will may become a slightly darker shade of blue depending on how the second coat turns out.  Thank you Liz for your help with colors!

A lot has been accomplished the past week or so and we’re not sure where to direct our energies at this point. It might be some furniture (like an entryway pieced that will hide our dog food, recyclables, and charging cords for multiple devices!).
