It’s a present day blog post. We are still living above the garage in John’s office/guest room. I have to admit it’s not as bad living here as I first thought. The builders knew we needed the Crab Shack makeover done quickly because we had friends from Florida coming for four days and we wanted them to stay there. John named this endeavor “Operation Jesse.” Meanwhile we were settled in to the little garage apartment. (Emphasis on little.)
Well, they are not done in the Crab Shack, but it is finished enough so that our friends could be comfortable. Our “stuff” is still all around the perimeter of the rooms, but the couch and chairs and tv are usable, as is the bed and the new bathroom space. There is still spackling to be done upstairs in the loft, and painting and electric work in the main room of the cottage, plus the big new closet has to be finished.
But, we’re moving forward at least. I don’t have access to my computer – writing a blog on the Ipad (for me at least) – not so easy. So, take a look around at how the Crab Shack a/k/a Katrina Cottage is evolving:
I set up the new closet space with a cooler and coffee maker:
All the comforts of home, huh? We’re thinking we’ll be in the garage another week. Jesse and Pam are leaving Sunday, and we hope to be back in the Crab Shack ourselves by next Saturday. I’ll let you know.
Enjoy the sunset!
