Today it is raining. It has been raining for about 3 weeks now. Mr. Comforts of Home is coming with me today and driving. Normally he is working at his REAL job and can't come to the new house to work.
I have a nice area of the world to drive through.
Look! Some fall color in the picture below!
This is Hendersonville...Main Street....The town I am moving away from. It is a very charming small town.
Halfway between my old home and my new home is this huge flea market. Today it is raining so not very many people are here. Even though it is huge, it is really like a BIG bad yard sale. Not a great flea market.
See the picture below? Remember my post the day after we purchased the house? We had a pipe burst in this powder room and flood the first floor. We had hoped that our insurance would pay for it, but because they determined the pipe was broken PRIOR to use purchasing the house, they would not pay. Even though the flood happened AFTER we bought the house. We are not very happy with our insurance company right now.
Anyway, this is the powder room. The floor in it has been removed, waiting for the sub floor to dry.
The adjacent floors....kitchen, eat-in kitchen, dining, living and great room all had to be sanded (because they warped and stained with the flood) and refinished. Below is after the first sanding and first refinishing coat. They still have to sand it and coat it two more times. In the mean time I can't get in there and do any painting. Hopefully they will be done by the middle of this coming week.
Here is another picture of the fireplace redo, taken from the great room and without all of the scaffolding in the way. Obviously it still needs to be sanded and painted. Then we will add the travertine tile front and the mantel and corbels.
