I promised you a sneak peak of what we are trying to do for Dog Walker and his soon-to-be bride. Since both of them have special needs, we thought it would be best to help them learn to live on their own a little bit at a time. We are making a small apartment out of a large bedroom for their first home together.
weekend, my sweetie put down all this beautiful tile in the utility room
just outside of their door. The nice part about it is that we have just
had it sitting in boxes since we moved into the house over 23 years
ago. It will match a small patch in their room that will become their
tiny kitchen. At first we were thinking just a little microwave and
fridge and then you know my sweetie, his projects tend to take on a life
of their own.
we are putting in a little bit bigger fridge, a sink, and a small stove
with a built in microwave. It cost quite a bit more in money and in
time, but I think it will be worth it since we are trying to teach them
to be independent. They will still have to share a bathroom with those I
affectionately call the "bottom dwellers," but it is only about 20 feet
down the hall, so they can manage.
my sweetie got all the primer on the walls. That was a huge thing
because the walls were a deep sea blue and now we want to make them a
white or pale yellow. The paint sprayer comes in so handy when we are
trying to cover such a large space.
Tomorrow they are
coming to measure for carpet. It is nice to think that far ahead, but it
probably won't go in until the 3rd week in February or so.
