Living In A Construction Site

Many of you know, and for those of you who don’t, we are in the midst of renovating a 100 year old farmhouse.  Bit by bit.

We tackle one area at a time and, since we are doing it ourselves (mostly CountryBoy with a bit of heavy-lifting assistance from me) it takes time to get the area completed.

In the meantime, whatever was in that area has to be moved to another location so that it’s not in the way.

Currently, the latest area of renovation is the pantry/laundry/bathroom room.  (Yes, it is all one room.  For the time being.  More on that later.)  So, everything that was being stored in the scary corner closet had to come out as well as the cabinet that is currently housing the towels and rags.

It all ended up in the dining room.


Tool boxes & bags, toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning stuff, home canned goods, etc., etc.

The mudroom is packed with things that are waiting to be stored in the pantry area.


Power tools, lumber, wood scraps and sawdust in the yard.


Boxes of screws, nails, tools, broom, Shop-Vac, etc. in the room that is being renovated.


And dust.  Lots and lots of dust.

What can ya do?!

I know it is temporary so I try to not to look at it.  And, I know that, in the end, that dealing with stuff everywhere will all be worth it when the area is complete.

Speaking of, I can’t wait to show y’all the pantry and laundry nook 🙂

I have thoughts of the final touches already, woohoo!  But, at the same time, trying to contain my anxiousness and excitement until it is finished.

Now, to dust or not to dust?  Nah, it’ll just get dusty again, ha!

Till next time friends!
