Getting There

For the past several months, you've heard me talking bitching about the  remodeling project that we are currently undertaking and about how much I hate living where we are and how I can;t wait to get back home. I am happy to report that we are on schedule and hope to be back in on or about Aug. 1.

Above photo taken on May 4, three days after moving out. You can see the remains of the main wall, which formerly separated the living room from the dining area.

This view, taken a few days ago, shows the same space taken from the opposite end. Obviously, the wall is gone, the cabinets have been moved and upper cabinets added and the former formal dining room has been enclosed and transformed into a laundry room. As you can see, we are getting close. The changes to the rest of the house are equally dramatic.

I can't wait to get home, though I will have to find something else to whine about. It won't be hard, firefighters are unusually adept at whining.

Thanks for reading,


  1. I want an invitation to your house warming party!

    That looks like a great floor plan, and one that's worth waiting for.

  2. Awesome photos. It looks incredible. Even though remodeling is a pain it is worth it.

  3. WOW!! Looks GREAT Capt. Can't wait to be bellied up to that bar drinking a "happy retirement" beer :-)

  4. Mad Jack and Lisa - Thanks, I wish I could take credit for the vision, but it was all the saint's. It will be worth it, almost like moving into a new house.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Willie - Soon enough, all beers are going to be "Happy Retirement" beers!
