Call Me Crazy!!


It has been said that marriage and moving are the two most stressful events in life. Rank remodeling your home right up there as well.

We are about three weeks in on a new room addition and remodel....and I'm going nuts.
We are adding on to the front of our house, a new foyer with mud room one way and office the other way, then a new living room. The old living room becomes my new dining room and the old dining room will become an enlarged kitchen. Now add a new green roof and new siding, new windows, new AC/Heat Pump with all new venting and 2 big new decks. I guess we should have just started from scratch.

We were going to start construction in the spring, but to get the 'good' contractor...we had to work with his calendar. Frozen ground when the foundation was being dug, snow and below 30 and wind chills with the framing, and now mud and icicles with the roofing....and we are still calving cows, so lack of sleep added to the mix makes everyone crazy. I haven't even had time to post anything on my blog for ages...so tomorrow I might start snapping pics of the work in progress.

What a life! I hope the project gets finished off quickly!

I just spent a beautiful easter weekend in the country. It seemed a most idyllic life. But i didnt have to deal with cows or builders!
