One of the first things that we have to tackle in the house is to fix all the holes in the drywall. There are several small ones throughout the house, many behind the door knobs. Then there is the hole by the front door that looks like it was kicked and a huge one in the laundry area, we think because of water damage. The hole by the door just needs to be textured now. In the laundry area, the plumbing is almost fixed (thanks, Dad) and then we (and I really mean Patrick here) can get on with the dry walling. And I must insert here that when Dad and I were cleaning up the floor that there was an overwhelming odor of wet dog - Yuck. I hope that we got it all up for good, but I'm not overly optimistic, I will probably need to bleach the whole floor at some point.
We have been looking at paint colors and think that we will be going with some warm beige tones. Slowly but surly we have been making progress, I can't wait until we get to move in!
