The Lake House Renovation: Living Room, Day 3

I know I’m posting photos these days without a lot of explanation. It’s time related, of course, and I can’t imagine I’m going to conjure more of it soon; if anything, there will be less of it. That’s the nature of adulting (or so they say).

I will take a moment to say this, though. Of all the rooms in the house, this is the one I am most excited to bring back to life. Perhaps it’s because we left original details, like the brick fireplace, brick accent wall, and original 1959 floors that it feels like those details are finally getting their redemption. I hope we succeed in honoring them.

Also, this room DOES have a gas fireplace. Just sayin’.

Welp. It looks like I’ve missed some days in the living room reno. At some point between then and now, we updated the electrical, blew in insulation, and are now in ceiling mode.

Oops. I think our contractor set our carport lights way too far apart. I may have to add a center light.

Matt the mason worked his magic today. The brick is patched up, and I’m hoping that means we won’t need to call him back for a while.

The insulators finished off their work today by blowing-in insulation behind the plywood walls.
