Fifteen people came to the Sullivan House over the weekend and catapulted us forward. The house I found at 11 AM Saturday morning was not the same house I left at 8 PM Sunday night. It was transformed from looking a broken building to a home that was being redecorated. The amount of work that was done was amazing.
The electrical work is 95% done. The kitchen… looks like a kitchen. The walls have been prepped in 90% of the house. The original mishmash of colors has faded away behind layers of primer and spackle. The house is primed. It’s not just ready for paint, it’s ready for one more attack of work and effort to get it ready for move-in day.
The infrastructure is ready. The boiler/water heater work is poised to begin. The kitchen and bathroom are ready to be finished. We’re ready to move forward with the chimney repairs. The interior & exterior colors are chosen. Paint is being purchased tomorrow. If you’re available, we’ll be there starting at noon every Saturday and Sunday thru mid August.
I can see the colors in my head. This house is going to look amazing.
