Little slice of life

Restoration Diary,

We covered the hole in the floor with good old duct tape to prevent getting splinters until we can replace the floor board.

I am sitting upstairs in my bedroom, trying to catch a moment of quiet from all the work happening below. I can hear the electricians working in the room below me. Suddenly a drill bit comes up through the bedroom floor. The electricians have just drilled a hole through our original Douglas fir wood floors.

This kind of sums up my day so far…

    I have been reading your posts for ages and ages, and love following your progress with the house. But all I can say now is…I hope these contractors and their subs are bonded and insured!!! You are a brick for putting up with all of this; pregnant; and 3 WEEKS BEFORE CHRISTMAS??? Good, good luck!

    Oh no!

    Deep breaths. Deep breaths. This is just a moment that you’ll show your future child later in life and say “so this one day when you were still in my tummy…” and you’ll have a family mark on the house to laugh and love about later.

    Whoa! That’s too bad. I guess the bright side is that it didn’t get your foot or something.

    ugh. is it in a conspicuous spot? My bungalow has a mysterious hole in the floor of my office and my parent’s bungalow had a bullet hole in the floor when they moved in! Sometimes you can plug it with a piece of dowel with similar grain and it won’t be too noticeable.
