We have packed the trucks and are making our first of 4 major moves tomorrow. We will be taking some furniture, but many, many boxes and more hardwood for the contractor and some other beautiful things we’ve acquired for the house. Between now and 2/15, we’ll make 4 trips (hopefully that will be sufficient) moving our furniture and belongings to our WV home. John will have retired and I have a feeling that I won’t be far behind.
There is still a good deal to be done to the house, but we are able to stay in the bedrooms, bath in our 6’X4′ tub and cook in the microwave in the upstairs hallway 😉 It’s like being newlyweds again. The downstairs has a lot to do. The contractor is still discovering rotted wood and apparently the floor joists upstairs in the old section need to be replaced. I still need power to the studio, the library needs to be “finished” and the downstairs bathroom needs to be done…… Well, that was the state of things last weekend. I’m very excited to see what’s new this week.
The thing I most want is the last thing we hope to have done, and it’s the most “expendable”, so I may not get it if we run short of $. I want a porch put on the full length of the front of the house, to replace the little postage stamp porch that we have. We had hoped to have the house done by now, but things don’t always go as planned.
Sorry not to have massive news about cycling, but our move and renovation (7+hours travel round trip) have taken precedence. Soon enough, we will be living and breathing cycling. Hopefully, you are making great choices about cycling in frigid weather. Be safe.
