We had recessed lighting put in in the last week. Its so bright, we had to add a dimmer, so we changed up the light switches in our living room/kitchen. It’s a affordable update that I think has made such a difference. Each dimmer costs $20 then the end one which is just a switch is $6. A lot of the old builder grade switches can can dirty very quickly. All the little things help. This panel is right when you come into our main living space so it was important it looks clean for when future buyers come to see.
Update on the work being done - The orange floors are being refinished on Thursday, so exciting!! Having the entry way laid with such nice floor it’s made it even more obvious how horrible this flooring is. It is being done when we go away for Christmas so that Sophie doesn’t breathe in the bad fumes.
The work surface is in but they could not do a whole piece where the sink goes because stupid me didn’t check the sink, of course has a crack in it. We are waiting for that to arrive but then it’s Christmas. So that will be done when we get back from New Hampshire. Not having all the work surfaces on means the tile back splash also couldn’t have been done. We are now with no sink in the kitchen and running up and down the stairs to fill the kettle for me cups of tea. Will be worth it in the end.
Also when we get back we need to crack on with finishing up the entry way with painting the new door, new door handles and cleaning up the skirting boards by adding shoe moulding and a lick of paint.
I’m looking forward to going away for Christmas so that I’m not staring at work that needs to be done. I can’t see something and not want to do it. •
