Chapter 1: TRANSITORY
Prepare yourself folks. This is no HGTV show. The house will not be done in an hour, the cast is boring, and we won't have any shiplap. But you will see lots of demo, a pretty great transformation, and the Lavender's smiling endlessly because the Quarry is actually happening!
We're starting this thing called Quarry's Stories because I essentially ran out of Monday Mood Boards to show you. Basically, a more detailed weekly update on the Quarry renovation.
Week Two Checklist-
- Carpet taken up
- All walls knocked out
- Footers for new garage dug
- Bedroom/Bathroom floor joists added
- Vaulted ceilings exposed
- Hallway to living space created
- Barkus being so confused as to why he can't run around in the house anymore
If you scroll back up and look at the fireplace closely, you will know that we discovered our fireplace is very crooked. This is not a structural issue, but is still looks funky. We had a concrete artist come up with a GREAT way to fix the Dr. Seuss looking fireplace while staying under our budget.
The surprise? Derek wants to keep it a secret from you until the grand reveal.
So. You may get sneak peaks here and there (since it is in the middle of the room) but I've been sworn to semi-secrecy.
As always, we can't wait to see what this week will bring! More updates to come next Monday!
Ps. As I was walking Barkus this week, the sidewalk near our apartment was taped off with 4 little cones around it. I didn't notice why the cones were there but I started to walk through the grass and tugged on Barkus to follow my lead. Well, I must have not made my tug obvious enough because he walked right under the tape and between the cones...onto a big pad of fresh cement *insert face palm*
So. If you are ever in Indianapolis, keep your eye out for a Barkus paw forever engraved in this city.
