Under Construction Day: 48


We had carpeting installed yesterday, and it looks great. The windows have been trimmed out too -- now in white -- which has made them appear to be new instead of about 25 years old. There is still lots to do but we are nearing the end.

Chris is painting today, tricky because the carpet is laid, but we ran into another snag with paint. The clerk at the paint store sold us the wrong type of paint, even though he had the marked lid of the correct paint in front of him. Another set back. So the ceilings didn't get done on Saturday as planned.

Funny, with all the different people you have to deal with for a project like this, our worst problems came from the paint store. We are trying to buy local here, but it's not working out very well!

Patience.
