Taylor Homestead // Building Up

I FINALLY got around to gathering all of my photos of our house renovations from our various phones, cameras, and computers, so I decided it was probably time to give a well over due progress update. If you are new here or even if you just need a refresher on what the old Taylor Homestead looked like when we first began, you can read this post: Taylor Homestead // Tearing Down.

Below is the initial list of projects (and a few added changes) we had written down, with the completed projects crossed off. Whew! We have put in a lot of blood, sweat, and my tears!

The sagging roof needs to be raised and braced with collar ties (which requires removing the entire ceiling)
Insulation needs to be installed in the ceiling
Two windows need to be installed upstairs
Final old wall on the outside of the cabin must be torn down and replaced with new framing, insulation, OSB, wrap, siding, and painted
Four windows need to be replaced downstairs
A new back door needs to be installed
A sheet of whatever that stuff is needs to be installed in the bathroom, along with a new sink
– The kerosene monitor heater needs to be set and in working order
The gas stove needs a new hose and regulator
– Decorative trim must be cut/stained/installed around the new windows and beams
– The entire inside of the house needs fresh paint (Upstairs has been painted!)
A huge crack in the flagstone in the living room floor needs to be filled
– I’ll make an extra bullet because I’m sure I’m forgetting something

And now, the pudding. (With an FYI link, because I was curious as to where this phrase actually came from, so I looked it up.)
