Lovenest 2.0

This week marks the official announcement of our new domicile! We are so excited about the new place and we've got a (short) list of things to do and then we'll be living in the new Lovenest.

I scooped gutter gunk for a few hours this morning over at the new Lovenest. Lots and lots of steamy stinky sludgy slop. I think with all the muck I removed from the gutters this morning that the house rose up about six inches on its foundation. I perhaps also destroyed an entire ecosystem in the name of free-flowing rain water. But I claim amnesty since I actually just moved it over to the mulch pile ecosystem.

Closet Crazy

These past two weeks have seen a lot of closet activity going on here at the Lovenest. I ripped out the mostly useless shelf and rod in the main floor closet (only one) and installed some ClosetMaid adjustable shelving. We probably increased our usable space by at least 800%.
Late last week we finally got our custom linen closet (cabinet) installed into the dead space (before picture) in our hallway outside our bathroom. You have no idea how exciting it is to have a place to put stuff like toilet paper and towels! Yeeha! We spec'd out what we wanted and had a local place build us a birch cabinet which they installed so as to try to look original. We'll have to paint it to match the rest of the hallway now.

Holly Days

The holidays are here and (hopefully) house projects are in a bit of dormancy. I picked up a nice little tree from the lot near work last night and transported it home on the roof of my car. It made a neat "shooshing" sound through the wind. A tasteful application of white lights and a few ornaments and things are looking mighty festive around here!
