The house project has been moving at marathon pace. Slow & steady. It seems that every project is 2 steps forward, 1 step back. With every board and joint out of square, out of plumb, out of level- we’ve been out of our minds. We’re at the point where I don’t know if it would have been faster or easier to wipe the slate clean and start over. Too late.
We’ve gone through layers of siding, window musical chairs, and a front door shift. And it still looks like a fireman’s training exercise. But we are poised to take some big steps – new siding, new drywall – there is even talk of cabinets. Have we crested the hill of ripping out the old and starting to put in the new? I can only dream.
So we plod on at marathon pace, knowing that the race doesn’t start until the last 6 miles. I’m not sure which mile we are on. But I hope it’s past #13….
