More house progress

Since my last update, I've finished painting the master bedroom, and the master bath is done except for figuring out how to get the vanity doors to close with the new hinges I installed. Today I got the hall and guest bedroom painted. I just now discovered that I need a different type of light switch for some of my lights - the ones that have 2 on/off points need a different switch than the ones I bought. I got a bargain from craigslist - a 2 year old ceramic top range for only $150. Looks and works like a brand new one. Sold my old range for $50. I bought a new washing machine over a year ago, and finally sold the old one so the new one is now in use. And the last computer finally sold last week - used that money to buy new tile for the fireplace surround, with enough left to pay the contractor to install it and raise the hearth a bit. New oak laminate flooring has been ordered, which I hope to have installed at the end of the week, along with the new fireplace tile. I have lots more to do, but it's getting there!

Sounds like you're getting a lot done. Hope all keeps going well.

Flooring and fireplace tile have been rescheduled for Monday. This is good, because I need to get the quarter round and transition strips for it. A big branch off a neighbor's maple tree fell in my back yard last night. Need to get out and see if it did any damage to the garage roof - I didn't see it until I was leaving for work this morning.
