porta potty serious

Our remodel is officially serious enough to have a porta potty!

Lots of crazy structural problems are being fixed. Old stairs have been taken out.  Two headers were installed (thick beam thingies).  The space is starting to take the shape of the house it's going to be.

This is the upstairs space we were living in just a couple weeks ago!  As of today there are no stairs to get to it...  But don't worry.  New ones are going to be put in. 

Even the two-story porch is being removed.  

We are snug as can be in our little rental.  Sure, one of us has to stand in the tub if we both want to be in the bathroom at the same time, and there are scary crickets in the basement.  But it's away from the construction and hubbub so we are content.  


  1. Crickets are considered good luck in China and I am sure there are other countries as well. Unless you have the grey camelback crickets - they will eat your clothes and have the personality of a rabid dog.

    Your are starting your and Robert's story in your new home. Keep taking those pics.

  2. oh and congrats on the port a potty. Maybe after the home is completed you can keep it and make it a shrine to the home gods. Unless you have a HOA
