In addition to painting the guest room, we put a chair rail in the dining room, which I love:
Meanwhile, Patrick is hard at work painting the front bedroom, pictures to come!
We also had the "Energy Squad" come in and do some small changes (like industrial weatherstripping on the doors), which should help some. We're in the midst of getting roofing bids (badly need a new roof), which is painful. And I signed up for "The Cure" with Apartment Therapy.
In the midst of all that, we looked at a bank-owned house on Holly today which is lovely and large, but strangely characterless and incredibly expensive for the condition it's in. Made me appreciate this place all the more.
