Renovation Update

DSC02356 This week­end I dropped a few grand on hard­wood floor­ing. Yikes. I looked into buy­ing the sus­tain­able bam­boo stuff, but it was twice as expen­sive as engi­neered hard­wood. I have been paint­ing with Sher­win-Williams’ Har­mo­ny paint though. It has no VOC and is anti-micro­bial in addi­tion. I’m halfway done paint­ing anoth­er room as well. I need to get all this wrapped up before hav­ing the floor­ing installed. The wood appar­ent­ly needs a few weeks to set­tle in to the house any­way.

I also installed a new dim­mer today. Got lucky with the cir­cuit break­er and the first guess was the cor­rect one. The house sure is wired strange­ly. There are a cou­ple of places where one light switch has to be on for anoth­er one to work, def­i­nite­ly old school, and def­i­nite­ly in need of repair. I was heart­ened to see a ground wire present in the dim­mer sock­et though, so per­haps replac­ing the elec­tri­cal sock­ets through­out the house to have grounds won’t be too bad. It will be nice to have part of a home to just relax around in for a change. I’ve got­ten used to liv­ing in a con­struc­tion zone.
