I have been scrubbing, bagging and hauling junk and a few treasures. I had to empty out 3 closets and the everything out of the living room. This weeks big news is the carpet is laid. It is amazing how much it changes the character of the house. Most of the house is hardwood floors. The kitchen vinyl plank and now the living room has fresh new carpet. Yep, I checked, its my things in the rooms, but I'm not sure it is my house anymore. The new owners just haven't looked at it yet and I have a new job to keep it clean for the new owners! So here are some pics of the living room from different angles.
The picture above the couch is painting of the old family homestead. Check out the baseboards that I cut and installed myself.
The clutter is all gone (and NOT coming back!) I think it is at the garbage transfer station by now.
Tomorrow is a Reallllly big day. The realtors photographer is coming to take the picture for the on line add and flier. After that I will sign the papers and my house will be officially on the market. I have accomplished a lot in a short period of time. I did make some steps towards making my dream a reality but just when I was gathering steam, I broke my leg. I was not able to get back to it until after Christmas.
Right now my biggest fear is the realtor will come and make another big list of things to do. While things may need to be done. I think I am about done in.
It will be a long night tonight and tomorrow. I'll be doing the spit and polish thing and then I will take more pictures. That way you can see what I have been up too and they will be good for me to have for my memory photo's. I think I see the finish line up in the distance.
I may just fall over the finish line.
