Everything breaks down or tears up eventually, and living in a mid-century house that becomes more and more true every day. Doubly, or at least it seems so, when that house is on a farm. I swear to you, it seems like as soon as one thing is fixed something else needs to be repaired or replaced around here, but such is the life of living in a house that’s older than I am, right?
To name a few, in just the last few months, both bathrooms have had to have new sub-floors and floor joists put down because of rotting (the floor literally moved when we walked on it), we replaced the old shower that the contractor described as having “come over on the Mayflower” (yep, it was that old), and new insulation was added underneath the house and in the attic. The next major project is to have tile installed in the bathrooms (Walnut colored wood tile at that! I’m in love with this stuff and will certainly be sharing a picture on Facebook and possibly here once it’s down), and that’s scheduled to happen after Thanksgiving. My own personal project list this year has included removing the beginning to peel wallpaper (which I’m still working on and hope to be completely wallpaper-less in every single room soon), painting one bathroom gray (and it’s beautiful, even if the guy at the paint counter repeatedly tried to dissuade me from that color choice), and later painting the 70s/80s era kitchen cabinets (thinking of mixing it up by painting the bottom ones green and the top ones cream).
