The Guest House, aka The Cottage, aka The Love Shack

Postings might be a little less frequent for a few days. We're pulling up tile in the guest house and then will be laying new flooring (that laminate wood-look stuff). We also hope to have the plumbers out Friday to put in a new toilet, sink, and faucet. Instead of replacing the countertop, which we discovered is actually a piece of kitchen countertop because of its measurements, I'm going to paint the existing formica. There's still a long list of things to do, including hanging new blinds, finishing the trimwork, and painting.

It's times like these that I wish we had a bunch of friends that would exchange back-breaking labor for steaks on the grill and beer. It's just Alan and I right now, and I'm proud to report that we haven't thrown a hammer or putty knife at each other yet. Yet.

It is a shame we are not there to help. I could use a nice juicy steak right now. Can't wait to see the results.

Love shack?? Care to elaborate. :-)

I can't remember who started that - seems someone joked that it was mine and Alan's love shack and it sort of stuck. But honestly, who knows. Maybe I started it. :-)
