We currently have a TON of projects happening in and around our little home.  I’ve got one more month till my due date, which means we now have somewhere from 0-6 weeks left to run around doing projects like chickens with our heads cut off.  I am definitely feeling a bit overwhelmed and I know the Chief is too!  There’s just so much in an in-between state right now, and we both would like more time to rest.

Here’s a sneak peek of a couple of the things that are going on.

*****

The Bedroom:  We’ve moved into the front bedroom and though there are still some piles of things we don’t know where to put, we got the basics in place.  Most notably, we managed to fit all our clothes into a smaller closet.

Here’s the nice big closet we shared previously – and you can see down the hall into the front bedroom that we’ve moved into as we cleared out this room.

I drew up a plan for the new closet on paper and the Chief executed it.  The plan looks a little crumpled since its trip to the hardware store in his pocket :)

The Granny Flat:  Major demolition has occurred.  Here’s what the room used to look like when it was our bedroom.

The Driveway:  And last but not least, the very old, very crumbly, cracked, and pitted asphalt driveway is being replaced with blessedly smooth concrete.  The Chief took it all out with a mini bobcat and sometime this week the new one ought to get poured.  Pictures to come on this one.

We’re busy!  I hope you enjoyed a glimpse of the many things keeping us on our toes.
