We had been on a roll…most weekends making lists and gathering up supplies, tackling the projects one by one…then this room happened! We couldn’t wait to have a comfy place to put our feet up at the end of the day, reward ourselves, with some snacks and a sip or two, and watch some movies or sporting events (March Madness has been amazing!) We wanted a place to really unwind, and it happened…we are so chill and happy that we only carve out 4-5 hours of work per weekend, thus not getting anywhere too quickly. And with the anticipation of sharing the “Chestertown Experience” with family and friends we need to cross more off the list. This room isn’t helping us at all, it is now a huge distraction (in a good way.) But, I do think it might have made some things clear to us, what our priorities are, our needs, and the reasons why we purchased this home in the first place. We wanted to escape and recharge. We anticipated putting in a little work bringing this house to a comfortable state. We didn’t know HOW MUCH this home would require. Lesson learned, whatever time and effort you think a renovation will take, double that thought, better yet-triple it! And as we dig deeper and decide what will be done room by room, we feel this old home needs more love to make up for all the years that it suffered. That being said, we decided to hire some more local contractors to help us knock out some more rooms and get the job done a little quicker. Hoping that soon we can get some people down here and introduce them to the beautiful Eastern Shore and all that it can offer the soul. We are pretty psyched with what we have accomplished so far, and look forward to revealing the true potential of this old house. Hopefully a bit quicker than the past couple months.
