Beautiful B&B

This is our neighbor's house and it was built just before our house was built. It is now a Bed and Breakfast. That is our house off to the left, peaking through the tree. Some days I get overwhelmed with the amount of work that our new (old) house needs and then look next door to see what the potential is for our house to be a grand house once again.

What have I been doing with my time? Cleaning, cleaning and did I say cleaning? I wanted to get a few rooms in good shape so that my husband could move into the house. He will begin wiring or should I say rewiring in the near future. It had been some time since the outside walkways etc... have had a thorough cleaning outside. I have been working on getting things neat and tidy so that we don't track so much dirt into the house. There is so much to do!

We have also been getting plans down on paper to add more plumbing which is sorely needed before we take our ideas to the architect. The contractor tells us he won't be finished before June so I have no idea when we will actually get to move into the house. The floors will need to be refinished and the contractor who does floors won't even begin to tell us how long that will take. He just chuckles because there is so much to do!

I'll let you know how things are going with the This Old House from time to time. In the meantime, enjoy this photo!

Sounds like you are working hard, but are you having fun? How much property came with the house? Are you working alone or are you getting help? I hope to come up north and see your house someday.
