A Two Flat Update
We received the very best news this week – demolition can commence! If you’re wondering why we haven’t talked about the Two Flat in a while, it’s because there has been long stretches of waiting. First, we finalized the plans (which we’ll talk more about in a later post!) and then did our best to patiently wait for the construction drawings. Once we had those in hand, we needed to wait on approval from our lender. With their approval, our GC requested the permits, which meant we had plenty of time to – you guessed – wait.
But! The waiting game is over because demolition kicks off right now! Like, right now. We had our final meeting with the demo team yesterday, and we triple confirmed what can stay (that dining room hutch!) and what can go (the rotting pantry addition). We’re crossing all our fingers for hardwood floors beneath the carpet and vinyl tile, and we’ll be holding our breath as the first sledgehammer slams into the wallpaper in my favorite room. It’s happening, it’s happening!
A question for you: We’ve already started filming the first vlog as another outlet to share the renovation process. We thought it would be fun to share monthly video ‘diaries’ of the process. Is this something you’d be interested in seeing, to accompany our blog updates?
Scott was so sick of hearing me rave about my Allbirds, that he broke down and ordered a pair for himself! He chose the Tree Runners in Marine Blue (I have the same in white), and he hasn’t stopped talking about how comfortable they are. I know, Scott. I know.
Someway, somehow, Lucy has started potty training. It’s like I looked up and she was a toddler, and – ugh, my heart. She is obsessed with sitting on the toilet, so we picked up two of these training seats (one for each bathroom). They are gooood, and when closed, they legit look like our Kohler seats! Lucy can easily put her own seat down, they’re soft close, and you’d never know we have a training seat.
This Perfect White collection is filling up my shopping cart so fast.
Every time we watch Queer Eye, Scott and I say, Poor Bobby! He has such a massive job, and yet the smallest amount of air time, don’t you think? Anyway, I came across this article, and I have to say… I disagree with his advice on #3 (quality over quantity in that case, I think), but you know I was nodding my head to #6.
