Hopefully you were as productive this week, as we were! We made great progress at Old Savannah and even allowed ourselves time to find another property. But let’s start with our ‘first born’, Old Savannah.
This week, we ordered bathroom vanities (which will be in within 2 weeks). We also had the exterior of the house painted. We converted from brick with blue trim & shutters, to brick with white trim & black shutters. Oh what a difference this makes-as I mentioned in my last post, you can see the moldings now!!
It wasn’t just about the exterior, this week. Our hardwoods arrived this week. You may be asking why we needed hardwoods after unveiling the beautiful white oak under the green shag carpet? Well if you recall, there was tile in the foyer & that gorgeous low pile carpet in the kitchen/breakfast room.
We are making a cohesive flooring statement in the house and converting both of these spaces to hardwoods. This will update the look and help the flow in the spaces around. This house is going to look fabulous!!!
We hope you have a great weekend and look forward to giving you the latest updates, next week!!!
We have been a bit quiet this week. Lots of little tasks being checked off the list, here at Old Savannah.
We wrapped up the electrical, relocating outlets and getting the kitchen wired. P.S. the kitchen cabinets are being delivered today-SO EXCITED!!!
We have done some pressure washing outside, getting the exterior ready for it’s paint job.
We also had the HVAC folks move some duct work to align better with the new layout.
New Sheetrock has replaced the textured ceilings in the public rooms. We should have a picture ready for our next blog post.
Now we just wait for the electrical inspection so we can begin sheetrocking the family room & kitchen. Then you will really start to notice the progress!!!
Finally, the most notable change in the week (and sign that we are closing the demo chapter)…dumpster #2 was hauled off!!!
Hope you are having as productiveof a week as we are. Check back in as interior progress should move much quicker now that demo & electrical are complete!!
We are looking forward to the weekend. We met with electricians, painters, flooring installers, and HVAC pros, this week. We even had a huge Sheetrock delivery from the Home Depot!
Next week, we will be putting Humpty Dumpty back together again. Exterior painting will begin. The Sheetrock will be hung in the family room, and covering the textured ceilings.
Have we talked about these textured ceilings? They are not your typical popcorn ceilings from the 1970’s, that can be easily scraped. These are textured to the point they have to be sanded or replaced. Clearly, we chose to replace with new Sheetrock …hence a large portion of the HD delivery.
We should have some great progress pictures of Old Savannah, next week.
Stay tuned, and have an awesome weekend!
