Just a little update on some continued progress on getting the house more livable…
Here’s a towel rack underneath the kitchen sink:
And a paper towel holder I found laying around here:
These are the cabinets we decided to go with for flatware and cookware. We wanted something enclosed to help keep dust off of it all. We hope to add one or two more:
And then something similar for the great room as a utility cabinet. We hope to add one or two more here as well:
We moved into the bathroom some of the things we’ve had sitting around just waiting for this time. The sink cabinet we bought at a yard sale, and the water from the red water container that has a spigot just goes into a bucket, much like the kitchen sink:
And a towel rack here too:
This is the front closet between the great room and library, and now we can hang our longer, cold-weather clothing here:
As I mentioned in our blog post on our wood burning cook stove, Sue and my parents have been very supportive of us in living out here, and one set of parents bought us the very nice porch swing! It has gone from being in the barn for years, to being in the bathroom in the house, and with starting to try to get the bathroom in order, rather than just move it to under the house in pieces, I thought I should just put it together. Sadly, I’m not sure why I didn’t just put it together sooner. I still can’t believe the mice didn’t destroy the cushions and pillows while in the barn.
But, here it is in process of being built, with the frame done. It’s very well made and solid:
And then complete!
And the test run in our work grubbies! 🙂 It’s a very nice porch swing, and thank you to the parents again for getting this for us!
This was a walking stick that decided to hang out with us. Maybe it was waiting for a ride! 🙂
Once again, we are thankful to the Lord for providing these resources, and thanks again to those who are helping make all this possible!
