The Big Reveal ... in 7 quick takes

~1~ People said we were crazy, but we planned it this way on purpose. During a period of seven days we had the following done in our house:


removed all the upstairs carpeting
added brand new carpeting in three bedrooms
added hardwood floor to the master bedroom and hallway
added a Corian sink and a brand new faucet in the kitchen
replaced the sliding shower door in the master bath with a rubbed oil bronze one


Seven days, people. We had workers bumping into each other on the stairs, angling for a parking spot in our driveway, and sharing each other's tools. For a time we had neither a shower in the master bathroom nor a sink in our kitchen. For seven days our front door remained unlocked, and people came and went at will.


Seven days of total upheaval then meant seven days of massive cleaning. I mean there was dust everywhere. I wiped down walls, washed curtains, mopped floors, and laundered bedding.


Here it is the end of January, and my spring cleaning is done. Finito.
