FALL ORC – Week 5


If this is your first time here, then HELLO! My name is Inna, like hyena. My husband and I enjoy building and renovating, in addition to our jobs and babies. We recently sold our first, self-built home and bought a ’67 fixer that has been uninhabited for 15 years, say for a few raccoon families.

If you wish to see some finished renovations, click HERE.

I may have had panic creep up just a bit… but I’m pretty confident we can finish on time. The goal is to finish EVERYTHING by this Saturday so I can take some photos Monday morning.

Now before I dive into our to-do’s and not to-do’s, let’s preface with the before photos of the lovely bathroom turned laundry room.

I’m very happy with the work done already. I missed the week 4 update because all we had time for last week was installing the cabinets and paint. However so far we have:

  • Demoed (a very one that can be broken down in 15 bullet points)
  • Installed tile
  • Built and installed tile for doggie shower
  • Mudded the walls
  • Replaced the window
  • Installed wallpaper
  • Built doorway into back patio
  • Installed new door into back patio
  • Installed cabinets
  • Ordered countertops
  • Installed and painted door trim and baseboards
  • Painted walls and started on ceiling
  • Installed Doggie shower plumbing
  • Ordered hardware
  • Ordered sink (this was beginning to hit a snag!)

Yikes! I really shouldn’t complain because we have done A LOT.

Our week 5 to-do list includes:

  • Install doggie shower plumbing
  • Install countertops
  • Install hardware
  • Install sink
  • Install faucet
  • Install door
  • Cover outlets
  • Style room

Xoxo, Inna
