We just finished up a custom piece that we’re calling Sweet Home Alabama. We hope you love it, Sarah!
Over at the homestead, it sort of felt like we took one step forward and two steps back. We finished painting…we actually totally forgot about the closets so yeah, that was fun. Then on Wednesday, Aubrey & my brother-in-law Michael started laying the floors. While they were working, the lights started flickering and they eventually lost partial power. They called the electric company & it turns out one of the main power lines was completely burned up…actually melted. They said they couldn’t believe it hadn’t cause a fire. So even though it was kind of a set back, we really feel like the Lord was watching out for our little family! This could’ve been major bad news if left undetected! It just so happens that Michael went to electrician school & knew how to fix the problem. He decided to go ahead & replace the old breaker box as well, while he’s at it. So basically we spent $300 for a job that would’ve cost us $2500. Thank you, Jesus (and Michael!:) It was a bit of a bummer but we’re trudgin’ on through…getting SO close now!
Here’s a little video from Thursday…
Here’s a before & after shot of the ceiling…
Floors flew the first day but we had to take a time out because of the electrical issue.
I came around the corner today & found the boys like this…boys will be boys!
We’re praying for an uneventful week ahead. We’re ready to move into this place!
