I'm still alive!

Happy Wednesday!

Just a quick fly-by post here today to let you all know I'm still breathing.

Been a busy month or so here at the new homestead and it doesn't look like I'm not going to get a break for a least another 2 weeks!

We are ALMOST ready to start moving our things in... ALMOST. I feel like I've been saying that for just about forever. In anycase, it's for real this time! Our kitchen cabinets are just about up. I'm stilllll painting base boards. And we will still need to stain the kitchen cabinets over the next couple of weeks before we can go for an occupancy permit (the joys of building...). 

While just about everything will be finished by the time we're ready to move all our gear in, it looks like not everything will get done. 

Like our kitchen countertops... yup went to order them today... 4 WEEKS WAIT. I seriously nearly died. Sometimes I really hate living on an island in the tip of the continent. Well it looks like I'll have plywood countertops for a couple of weeks!

Hope to get back to my regular blogging soon!



  1. It will be worth the wait once it's all finished. And your island on the tip of the continent is a wonderful place. We still miss Newfoundland even though we've very glad to be back in the U.S. :-)

  2. Aww sending you big hugs xx

  3. Bless you for having all the energy to get your home ready to move in!
    It will so be worth having to wait for all the items you've ordered too!
    love Annette

  4. Sounds like things are really coming along! Can't wait to see pictures. It may seem like it took forever, but you guys built your own house! That's amazing! :D

  5. Glad you're getting to the finish line with your new home Melissa. I remember when you started it and now here you are. :D I know you'll be so excited to move in. Yes there's a downside to living on an island but lots of good things to balance it out! Looking forward to a tour of the new place when you're ready to show us!

  6. Good to hear you are almost there! When we did our house, the end seemed to keep stretching out!

    1. I guess I saw her on Etsy, Oscar. I was impressed by her works. You need to see them, if you haven't yet. The prices are quite bearable.
      Merry Christmas!
