Connecticut rehab – Final week

You might have noticed that I haven’t been posting about my rehab project much lately. Well its been a long (way longer than I hoped) road, but the completion of the project is looming. Less than a week away in fact. And boy will I be happy to be finished.

At this point I can’t even begin to recall all the little things that have been completed since I last updated on this topic in early August. We’ve done everything though. All the trim work, flooring, fixtures, caulking, painting… you get the idea. The stairs have been a real pain to paint, but I should be finished with the fine touches on Wednesday. After that, all that is really left is a little weatherproofing for the doors, painting the front door, cleaning up the yard, and doing final cleanup in the house. It feels really good to be running out of things to do.

I’ve certainly been wrong on timetables before, but we will definitely finish up this weekend. In the end it looks like it will have taken us about 5 months of weekends to finish this project. There has been a lot of blood and sweat put into it, but the final product is going to be nicer than I could have ever hoped for. We might even have a buyer lined up already. Once everything is totally cleaned up and finished I’ll take some really nice pics and do a little before and after comparison. In the meantime, check out the updated pictures of the project below.

    Dude! Your rehab looks great. I want to live there…PS- you should enable comments on your “rants and raves” section…I wanted to let you know that I’m also not a fan of the recent “no left turn”! What’s that all about…
