The latest Malibu home renovation project video is here along with some photos below. This is the quickest tour in the world of the bedroom areas in our house. Beware, video taken with my phone as I was running through the house this morning. You may not be able to hear me at some points and my video skills are not at all professional!
Anyhooooo…..we are just days away from moving into our Malibu home renovation project. My guy TE and I have been working on this house for over a year and now the time has come for us to move in together. It is our dream house. We love it. Makes us happy to be there. That is the good news…
The questionable news I have to report today is that the house is far from ready! All is good but the house still needs just a little more work…errr…a lot of more work actually. I am finding this all quite amusing today…last week it stressed me out…today I understand it is what it is and we’ll make things work. We are lucky to be moving into this wonderful home…so a little sawdust, some paint, drywall, nails, drills and hammers will be part of our world for awhile.
We have been out to Malibu every morning and most evenings to check out progress on the finishing touches. Progress has been super duper incredibly slow. We love our contractor GB but the hopes of us moving into a finished house have long been abandoned. We are moving into a house still under construction! TE has given up his place by the beach in L.A. and I have been packing up things in my tiny little cottage in the Hollywood Hills…getting ready for our end of the month move. We have movers and TE has no residence at the end of the month…so we are locked into moving even though the house is not done!
I had this dream way early on that construction would finish…the keys of the house would be handed over…I would have a cleaning service come in and do a wonderful and thorough clean of the empty space and we would move our things into a pristine finished brand newly remodeled home. Check out the video and you let me know if you think the dream will come true in a matter of days?!? Hee hee.
Today when we went to the house and realized that progress is moving at a turtle’s pace…both of us had to chuckle and throw our hands up in the air. I guess my new roommates will be my guy TE, his son, and a whole construction crew! This process of remodeling a house with my guy as taught me that you can plan and push as much as you want with construction but ultimately things take longer than you thought! Learning to be flexible!
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the rooms and the work in progress!
Here we go….will keep you posted.
