How time flies by

It's May, it's May, the lovely month of May...

New month, new location. I'm presently commuting about 38 miles each way to work in Nashville and waiting, waiting, waiting to close on my house.

Looks like I get to move next week to a new location and then move to the new house.

The house needs work which is why I got such a good price. It has mold. It's on a slab so only some of the wall studs are needing treatment and to replace some sheetrock. The company owning the house removed the damaged carpet - for which I thank them. Lots of big windows, a fireplace and vaulted ceilings. So our tasks will be to remove the moldy sheet rock, treat the studs, replace the sheet rock, paint and install flooring. Then replace windows and install vinyl siding on the back of the house and chimney.
Along the way we have to remove some badly overgrown shrubbery and trim some other plants. We'll sod the front yard and do some landscaping.

Further down the road is replacing kitchen cabinets with 48" upper cabinets instead of 36" and re-doing the master bathroom.

Knitting time is not abundant right now so nothing new to show there - and my camera is packed and in storage.

Hopefully I'll update a bit more often now. Will have some before and after shots coming too.
