Daughter Hallie and Nick have continued to devote hours to the renovating of their little Tudor in Seattle. Naturally, during the winter months, the work is mostly indoors. I think they're about finished with the two bedrooms, the front bedroom now serving as a den. (I think I have that right.) Now they're working on the living and dining rooms. They had professional help with the ceiling, I believe, but for the most part, they do the work themselves.
Last week Hallie said that she was tired of the dust and clutter, especially in the work area.
Nick found a cabinet at Goodwill (or a thrift store) for $35, which he subsequently bought and managed to bring home. She said it was a little smaller than what she had envisioned, but it would do. Then she had the work of cleaning the dust off paint cans, supplies, and such.
It's always a good feeling when you've made a positive change.
And I'm proud of them for thinking to buy used, thus practicing to reduce waste in the world. KW
