So these rooms are almost finished. Finished enough that we can enjoy them. The top two are our master bedroom suite. We didn't really do much there, just a new coat of paint, new carpet, and some new furniture. The bottom is my office, which I love! I've never had my own office before (except at work, and that doesn't count). Tomorrow they are going to sand the new hardwood floors, so I hope within a few weeks I'll have a kitchen!

Okay, so I've been whining a little about not having a kitchen...since JUNE! But hey! Look what I DO have. We got through the holidays without any decorations, and I lived through it just fine. Thanks to Tawny we were still able to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas at her house. I wonder if this will be the new trend???

How can a house look so finished on the outside, and so unfinished in the middle?
I'm happy to report that we're still enjoying the process. We've even learned to host a few parties "campstyle."

I would post a new picture, but it still looks the same. Maybe I should get back to business and return to travel posting.

In case anyone is interested, I'm doing lots of writing for a couple of websites. Check them out:

Once the house is finished I intend to get very serious about writing. But for now, I'm writing four short stories a week for a little fun money.

I'm loving having my own office upstairs. Very quiet and secluded (when the workers aren't here).

Pictures will follow soon. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you.

Getting closer, but still not ready to cook! This is our dining room. We moved out of our bedroom suite into the upstairs guest room and office. The upstairs is nearing completion and our bedroom should be ready this weekend. The fireplace in our bedroom is getting gas plumbed to it so we can have a fire with the flip of a switch, and no dirty wood. That will be great! It's being painted now, and the new carpet gets laid on Thursday and Friday. Can't wait!!!
