Short answer: I don’t know.
Long answer: Look, I bought a ladder!
It’s a pretty green fiberglass ladder, too. Ladders cost a lot more than I thought they would cost. This one was $58. Oh well. I guess you wouldn’t want to skimp on quality with a ladder, now that I think about it.
Did that ladder distract you from that pesky move in date question? No? Rats. Look, I removed a door from its hinges!
That was fun. I did it while the locksmith was working. I didn’t like having a door in the hallway between the living room and the kitchen. I also didn’t like having a door with a hole in the middle of it covered by packing tape. The door opened into the kitchen, and when open, covered the thermostat, which seemed like a bad idea. It also narrowed a busy little spot where the stairs to the bedrooms meet the kitchen. Not a great place for that door. I might eventually replace it with a barn style door on the living room side, or maybe a pocket door down the line, or I might not ever put a door up there again.
Anyway, so I really don’t know when I’ll be moving in or when exactly renovations will begin because I still need to get the first chunk of cash from the bank. Turns out that there is a process for that and that process takes TIME. Y’all will know when I know!
