Pandemic Renovations

Alex and I had some big plans for 2020. We were going to head back to Europe for three weeks of exploration. Alas, the pandemic put a grinding halt to those plans. Fortunately, I took out cancellation insurance. While it took four months of emails and phone calls, we eventually received a full refund (less $100 processing). I was so relieved.

We decided that since we couldn’t go anywhere, we would take on some renovations in the house.

First and foremost, a larger bed

This is our queen sized bed. Not enough room for me, Alex and the two boys

We found a beautiful King Size Bed on Amazon.

A king sized bed that fits all of us! Hooray!

Alex repainted the ceiling in the bedroom and the walls. So much more soothing now.

Then, he tackled our master bathroom

This is what the bathroom looked like when we bought the place in 2013
This was the result of a number of hours of painting, tiling and moving stuff around

Then, we had a bit of a disaster in the plumbing so we had to replace the floor. The floor was easy to install but no longer went with the wall colours.

The end result.

We have new colours, new floor and we couldn’t be happier.

Next, he tackled the dining room

This is the original room circa 2013

We then changed everything in this room

Here is the latest incarnation.

We will be tackling the office, laundry room, kitchen and guest bathroom next. Keep checking for updates
