This past week, we passed the electrical, plumbing, and mechanical rough inspections, which means the walls are now being closed up. While that means we've been making good progress, it isn't especially exciting in terms of how my house looks. It just means more tarps are now draped across my doorways.
|Should there be a tarp on that chair?|
|How is it possible that this space looks even smaller|
WITHOUT the walls???
I'm stuck. Can't use the front door, can't use the side door, and while the guys are working, I can't even get into the dining room to heat up a cup of tea. Life's tough when you're lucky enough to be getting a new kitchen, right?
Even though I've been banished to the back of the house, and there's nothing pretty to show quite yet, we did find something interesting! Stapled behind the door jamb were two of the original permits to the house:
|Sorry online creeps, I photoshopped out my address.|
You'll now have to do 1.5 seconds of sleuthing work to find it.
Pretty neat, right? Even though they are old and tattered, I plan to frame them and keep them in the kitchen- I think this old house deserves to keep her historical documents, don't you?
By the end of this week, the floors (and maybe the cabinets!) will be going in, and I'll have some fun pictures to share...eek!
