We are finally moving in you guys!
Although we are not quite finished with phase one of our renos, we are pretty close. . . and at this point, we just want to be in our home for Christmas!
So what did we get done from Phase One of #TheModHouseProject?
Well, we were able to replace all the flooring on both levels of our house. This felt like a never ending task but we did it! We also got in new baseboards on the main floor and cut everything to size. However, nothing is nailed in yet. We figured we would leave as is until we finished painting. It will save us from the tedious job of taping.
We got our kitchen in! The countertops are actually being installed today, however, we still have a ton of finishing touches to add to this space. Plus we are waiting on a few out-of-stock drawer fronts to be delivered from IKEA.
We started painting the main floor and I found the most awesome grey ever! Words nor this picture below can describe how warm and inviting it looks with dark floors. F-Stop by Para Paints (p5243-44) just made it to my number one spot for favourite paint colour!
Unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to complete our staircase. It still remains bear at this point and all the stair treads are sitting in my basement waiting to be stained. Not going to lie, we contemplated whether or not we should just hire someone for the job. We still don’ t know which direction we are going to take.
We push ourselves hard this past month and look forward to slowing down the pace just a bit. Now that we will be living in the home, we can tackle one room at a time to make things a little more manageable with our daily life.
It’s finally starting to take shape and we’re beyond excited!
