Putting on an Addition

After finishing most of our home renovations we thought it was time to put on an addition.  No, not an addition to our house… to our family.  We are expecting a baby boy in February!

Of course, with a baby on the way, our renovation priorities shifted and we’ve had to decide what projects need to be completed before he arrives.

Here is our current to-do list:

  • install a carpet runner on our stairs
  • paint and furnish the nursery
  • finish the main room in the basement, including:
          • ordering a built-in bookshelf/desk unit
          • paint
          • install subfloor, carpet and trim

With three months to go, we’ve got lots of work ahead of us.  Hopefully we’ll be ready in time to bring home our little man!

Love this! Want to know color of room and pictures before the "little man" (maybe not so little) comes home!

Each person has an addiction to share with. Some of them may be worse. Some of them may not be.

Oh, congrats on the new arrival in your family! It does sound like you're going to get busy before the baby arrives... it's probably for the best if you get your work done before that day, so it'll be smooth sailing and you'll be able to take care of the kid without having to worry about the renovations.
