Still working on the upstairs apartment

The upstairs apartment is coming along... slowly.  We spent the weekend painting baseboards and closets.  The week ahead will move us forward big-time. Ben is tiling the bathroom and putting in the cork floor. Harry is finishing the closet in the downstairs hall and our pal Ritchie is painting the woodwork.  It always takes longer than you might think.

Harry and I spent Saturday and Sunday sanding, priming and painting trim and the insides of closets. We're hoping that it will all be finished by the middle of December so Sue can move in for Christmas. You can see from the photo that there is still much to be done. Today I made and posted a list in every room of the tasks that have to be completed.  There are quite a few of them.

But if things go well we'll have the washer/dryer, the dishwasher, the stove and the range hood installed, plus most of the electrical finished. Then all that's left is sewing it up.

    Hope the sweet girl is doing fine with the cold weather.

    cheers, parsnip
