Despite all these inconveniences, I love seeing the house take shape, corner by corner, foot by foot, and successfully getting through it without the aid of a contractor or interior designer.
Being able to keep track of every little detail, from the square footage of tile and wood I needed for the bathrooms and living room, to the size of the refrigerator and stove, makes me pretty sure my brain is still functioning pretty well.
I’ve invited friends to come over for election night so we can anxiously watch the returns together for this stranger-than-ever contest! New windows are being installed on October 24th, and the house should mostly be ready to receive guests.
Make sure to vote!
