my husband is a painting contractor & our home is always under construction....projects that last months on end. his specialty is antique home restoration & our dream is to remodel our home one room at a time. we're turning our 1974 house into an 18th century replica, which means hand milled ceiling beams and mouldings & old tobacco barn flooring. sounds great but the reality is i am always living out of boxes or trying to navigate around bins of things shuffled room to room. our present project was expected to last 4 -5 weeks. we're in our 7th & probably only half way there. i'm trying to keep my eye on the end result..... i'm going to love it. but for now i'm surviving one day at a time.
