This marks week FOUR of my chimney being repaired. The endless rain and thunderstorms has thwarted the quick rebuild of one of the chimneys on my house. And when it’s sunny?! Well, my guess is the contractor double-booked and just doesn’t want to say anything since they aren’t showing up here! Imagine someone with my level of impatience coming home every day to the dreaded tarp, which I now feel as though I need to name since it’s been hanging off of my house for so long. It has sent me into quite the home improvement tizzy, prompting me to take off today from work and accomplish some long-overdue to-dos off the list!
::1:: Since the chimney debacle is happening outside, I want nothing more than to add landscape lighting that will detract from the scaffolding and all around wreckage. What I don’t want to do is pay a fortune for it. Enter this great tutorial on how to set up your exterior lighting, with a nice section for DIYers.
::2:: After the chimney is done, we also need our front steps/porch re-bricked. If it’s a total tear down anyway, I’m thinking something as sleek as this, with stone instead of brick. And lighting. Lots of lighting.
::3:: And eager to change the color of the house and its stone work to something more like this.
::4:: For the interior, still completely obsessed with turning our basement into a usable space until the time comes where we can finish it properly.
::5:: But let’s be honest, I’ll clean out my spare bedroom closet and go to a local craft brewery. #summerfridays
Happy weekend, everyone!
