The Renovation Is Finished

For these two weeks that I'm home alone, I plan to ignore the regular routine, leave the alarm clock off, and sleep in if I can. My body certainly has its own internal alarm.





This morning, I slept all the way to 6:45 and - LOL - since that's over an hour past my usual wake-up time, I skipped running and blogging and went straight to journal writing because the carpet cleaners were coming.





They were the last tradesmen and other than a few touch-ups and painting the doors and trim - which frankly sounds like a lot of work - the renovation is finished. The bottom stairwell is open and bright and the washroom is updated and now enters off the hallway instead of the downstairs bedroom. It's MUCH more practical.





Best of all, I don't feel like I'm going down into the dungeon now and when I look out the studio entry, the view is open, more inviting, WAY better. The renovations took forever but the results are what I wanted and this is good. And now that all the workmen are out of my house, it's time for some serious studio play. YES YES ! ! !

Talk soon - Myrna

Grateful - a finished and successful renovation

  2. The flow of entrances in a house is so important. Having been through a whole home reno im sure you will appreciate the quiet and lack of dust etc in your time alone.Enjoy :)

    1. What I appreciate the most Michelle is the lack of raw edges. They really grate on my nerves. To see everything smooth and flowing as you say is much more calming.

  3. It must be so nice to have it done!! It's almost the best part for me. And the view out the studio door is so much nicer. Looks great.

    1. Done. Hmm... it's a kind of creativity where I enjoy the process up until that point - you know - the one where everything goes crazy and then comes back together again. YES - the view is MUCH better.
