Heartbreak & Slow Progress| Lindsey Mix Photography

We are SO long over due for an update.

The delay in an update has been two-fold. The first issue was that while the contractors were removing the roof on the round room of the house, part of it collapsed. To say I was heart broken would be a gigantic understatement, a horrible, disappointing understatement. I didn't talk about it for days and didn't share with family for a while either because I just didn't want to talk about it.

I loved that room. I loved the super quirky windows and how much it spoke of the person who had built it. The character was alive in that room and now it's gone. We brought the whole wall down to around 3 feet and will build the rest with windows to essentially turn it into a sunroom. It will be lovely...and I know I'll love it, but it's going to take a while to get over the heartache of losing what was there.

The second issue arose when we had our mason come back out to take a look at how to handle what had happened to the round room. He discovered that both chimneys on the house were insufficiently supported/crumbling and needed to be removed. We needed engineering plans to detail how to remove them to make sure no further damage happened. 

So, it's been several weeks and we're back to making some progress. The chimneys have been removed, the stone poured, radiant floor installed, windows opened, the mudroom door cut into the house, the back doors bricked up,  and just yesterday the concrete slab was poured inside. It was SO exciting to go inside today and get a feel for what the space will feel like!

We're excited that the next few weeks are going to move quickly and I'll have lots of updates to post!
