Progress Report

Moving day is finally here! We have packed, moved, cleaned, arranged and made a million decisions in the past three days. We have one bedroom and bath semi-ready and are progressing at light speed. Here is a little progress report–more later when the internet, phone and cable are connected. I had to travel to the local coffee shop to find a Wi-Fi connection to post today.

Love this beautiful rhododendron at the entrance to the new house!

Painters at work–so many holes in the wall.

More patching in progress … how did that fake vine get back in the house?

All of the mismatched baseboards are leaving and new 10-inch baseboards are being installed.

Herb de Provence garden by Keven Hawkins enjoying its new home.

I can’t wait to plant the Lupines–they don’t grow in Atlanta!

The view is Gorgeous!

The view from my kitchen window. The beautiful tall Fleur vase is from Dovetail Antiques in Cashiers, North Carolina–love it!

The Master Bedroom–lots of work here. The fake ceilings are leaving and some beams may be added—check back to see what happens. How many holes can there be in one room?

Tada! My one bedroom with the wonderful 10-inch baseboards, new door surrounds, new window and closet trim and fresh Yummy paint. More decorating to come…

The downstairs hall still has some of the fake ceiling and a very dark Faux suede wall–help!

Antiques in waiting.

More antiques in waiting and my son’s temporary room. Thank goodness he has a good attitude.

Guest room in transition–no fake ceiling. I do love the 9-foot ceilings in the basement.

The worlds ugliest entry hall–but Daisy and Janie look cute!

I’ve chosen colors for the exterior, and the ‘Stop’ sign window is yielding to a round window.

This window will become a Dutch door with a stone entry edged in boxwood–what’s not to love!

A toast to the new home in the making–don’t you love that view.

    Oh my goodness it has come such a long way in just a few weeks! And all the holes…they must have had more twigs up on the wall than you thought!
