(Post 103 of 263. Thanks again to those who participated in the Fundrazr. As I mentioned in the post announcing Bast’s passing from COVID, I thank everyone for your generous donations to the original Fundrazr campaign, which resulted in sponsored 263 posts. I will continue to honour the commitment to write those 263 posts, but I will not commit to more. The link above is to a new campaign to help Bast’s family.)
Horrible software difficulties aside, it has been so much fun to plan out my house in software so that I can visualise its potential. I thought I’d save these designs for posterity as I’m sure they’ll evolve over time.
One thing that I’ve come to realise is that the floors need to be a bigger priority than I thought they would be. For the bulk of the rooms, a lick of paint and new furniture is all that’s needed, but I don’t want to bring in new furniture when it will all have to be moved out of the way to redo the floors. So, yep, soon as I get a contractor here to give me a quote for redoing the office, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m going to get a quote to redo the floors in the entire house except the two remaining bathrooms and the kitchen, which will be done when I do their complete renos (since they’ll have different flooring anyway. This summer is promising to be quiet with work (time to manage projects), I have some savings built up, and I also have my line of credit to draw on if I need to. Might as well get things done!
