While we were working on the second floor last week, we pulled up the last remaining piece of carpeting from the house. This is how the hallway had looked for a few months:
The painting was finished a while ago, but we finally tore out that last bit of icky carpet that was here when we moved in.
Unfortunately, there are one or two issues.
But we did know that before we pulled out the carpet. Except for the plywood filled hole with about 975 more nails than it needs. Those are always a surprise. The previous remodelers sure did like to make certain things were WELL fastened.
For right now, the whole thing looks like this:
Now our to-do list for the hallway is:
Paint the walls Pull up the carpet
- Finish the ceiling patch
- Paint the ceiling
- Replace the light fixture
- Add baseboards
- Add transition pieces
- Strip the floor
- Seal the floor
- Trim the office door
- Re-trim the window
- Paint the window
So much stuff for such a little space! We’re getting there, though, even if it’s slow.
But on the bright side, look what the Hubs found in the big hole in between the hallway and bedroom!
That will be a very special addition to the fisherman’s cottage.
