It is incredible to wake to the chirps of robins and brown thrashers. There is an owl back in the timber who keeps me company all through the day. At night, the frogs in the run-off creek sing me to sleep. Amazing the peace that just one open window can bring.
Insulating, sheetrock and paint will wait until we tackle the entire bedroom. We have to finish our bathroom and gut the kid's bathroom first so finishing probably won't happen until fall but definitely before winter.
While it's frustrating having to progress so slowly, it has given us time to think through our steps many times before committing, making that first cut. We've been saved from possible mistakes that would have cost us more money and time in the long run.
