House Reno Update

Well, my piano arrived yesterday, and almost right on time. Hubby had made a sterling effort over the weekend to get the wood flooring down in that area, and on Sunday evening we unwrapped the carpet which we’d shipped all the way from South Africa. His parents bought it for us about 25 years ago when they came to visit, and it still looks almost like new.

When the piano guys arrived, they had to move it out of the way to tip up the piano and fit the legs on.

Soon it was done and put in place under the domed ceiling which hubby had so laboriously crafted and painted.

The underneath of the chandelier, which came in many pieces and took half a day to assemble. There are fifteen candle-lamps in it.

 

I was quite surprised at how long the piano is. It’s 7 ft, but didn’t look so big in the store.

Today, hubby is finishing off the floor in the kitchen and in a few days we’ll be able to put the refrigerator and dishwasher in place. All the painting is done, and the cupboards and granite tops are in, so I’ll soon be able to start unpacking boxes, and in a few days we’ll have a working kitchen

The dining room is still unfinished, but is next on the ‘to do’ list.

The TV room, sitting room and study just need the floor done, and there’s still all the skirting boards to put in and the pillars to paint and a few other finishing touches.

Here are some of the rooms which he finished before we moved in. https://anotherday2paradise.wordpress.com/2016/05/03/wpc-admiration-for-hubbys-creativity/ Those of you who’ve been following me over the past couple of years, may remember what the ‘abandoned’ house was like when we bought it. It’s been a long journey from this https://anotherday2paradise.wordpress.com/2014/08/12/my-roofs-got-a-hole-in-it-and-i-might-drown/ , but the end is in sight.

Apart from the new roof, doors and windows, the work has all been done by one pair of very hardworking hands. Hats off to hubby.

Hope you’re all having a great Tuesday. Now I’m going to feed the worker.
