Goodbye Franklin, Hello Lamartine

From city, back to country. I promised pictures so here they are. After you look at them, you'll better understand why I will be missing in blog land until I get a handle on how to live through this!

So, Goodbye City of Franklin

Hello Country village of Lamartine

Never a problem to get all those little boxes up the steps

The "new" Kitchen, no sink, stove or dishwasher

Looking through the "to be" dining room, into the living room

This is the "new" living room!

The washer broke in the trip so I hand washed jamies

and hung them in the living

a few totes among the wash and tools

In the dining room, looking into the "new" laundry and powder room

My new sewing area

computer area and my temporary bedroom

also the living room and exercise room

Old powder room, looking through medicine closet hole to my new expanded bedroom

Bedroom, looking into old powder room
The lathe is original to the house (1859)
The risers are hand cut trees

This wall will be removed-gaining 8 feet of bedroom

So blog land, as you can see, we have a ton of work ahead of us before the snows start..heat to install, windows, door, insulation and try and make some comfort so we can call this place home. I'll be back again when I get a handle on how to live through this!

Oh Holee, what an undertaking!!! I see why you are depressed. Moves are always hard, and it looks like you have your work cut out for you for awhile. Hopefully you will have a nice long Indian Summer to get some stuff done before the snow flies.

Hugs from Quiltynurse

Holy moley Holee! Look at it as yet another BIG adventure. Sorry, that's kinda lame. Although, look at it this way: You have a reasonable excuse for any and all behaviors that you may exhibit. I'll be thinking of you, and if there is anything that I can do to help, please run the flag up for me. I can be there.


Gee Holee it will be like a new house. Besides at least you have something to look forward to and plan for. I am sure it will be great when it is done.

LOVE YOU! That's all I can say. My heart goes out to both of you for all you have to do...but I know, it is possible. Just do what is critical to health and welfare first...and the other as you get to it. Sending hugs too! Kathy

I remember your last move not too long ago, I hope this isn't too hard on you. I do love that you have more room though! And, I love that you can pile on the little boxes on to the stairlift!
As Quiltynurse said, I hope you have great weather while you unpack and get organized.
