    Hard to get a photo in the narrow dark hallway in the evening, but this is the extension to the furnace closet I completed today.

    It included trimming the closet (pantry) closest with the white door and trimming the bedroom doorway at the end of the hall, both sides. The extension has the brown vented door on it you can barely make out next to the bedroom door. It kicks out from the wall a few inches. I made it blend with the door jamb to the bedroom so it blends better.

    Looks good Jim , to bad about having to do all the extra work , but it’s done now , hopefully you guys can get it sold in the next little while.

    We have it sold with the condition that the buyer can sell their home by Sept 4. They shouldn’t have a hard time doing that as it’s in a hot market area. The waiting is driving us nuts though. I don’t know which is worse, that, or having strangers come through the house.

    Of course then we have to go on tour to find a new place. We have a bunch around the province we want to check out. That may be stessful too as it may take most of a day of driving to get to some of these places. We are planning a week or two of living out of a suitcase, and we are both home bodies who don’t like going out much. Vacation for us is being at home.

    Well I hope it works out for you guys ,
    That’s definitely stressful ,
    Yeah I’ve been in a similar situation a few times ,
    I never really liked having those open home showings , especially since we were living in the house at the time , with two small dogs , and a 2 and a half year old daughter , that was kinda juggling things around , I don’t think I could go through that again ,
    And we are very similar to you and your wife , we are home bodies also ,

    I’m wishing you guys all the best , it’s definitely hard , that’s what they say moving is one of the top 5 stressful events in life ,
    On the other hand , I actually liked going to visit Houses and or model homes , basically it was more of looking at certain style and Ideas of how they design and layout and so on.

    Sending you positive vibes Jim 👊👍🙏

    That is great news that you have your place sold. Your right the market is hot right now. I am sure the waiting could drive you nuts.
    I know how you feel in way. As I am still waiting to get into our new place. We have another month to take ownership of our new place.

    Picked up some BB ply today for the bedside table drawers. If anyone had done small ‘hidden’ cabinet drawers – I would greatly appreciate hearing how you designed them.

    Another day researching homes for sale online. Tiring. We removed 2 from our list we had high hopes for due to lack of internet access at the locations.

    reasonable sattelite internet service

    We did look into that. Slow, expensive, and prone to interuptions. Much like sattelite TV, a cloudy day can interupt service. We use the internet a lot, so we need good reliable service that won’t cost an arm and a leg. Just uploading my videos would be a chore.

    That doesn’t sound good to me.

    The only time I had issues with satellite tv is when it is raining really hard or snowing. Oh yeah when my neighbor’s tree was blocking the signal

    Even in the little country town I live in it is really hard to have good internet.

    That would be a deal breaker for me as well.

    SOLD

    Our buyers sold their place. The deal is a go. The clock is ticking for us to find a new place. We hit the road soon, so if I disappear, you know why, I’ll be back.

    They asked to move the closing date to Oct 1 and we said no, keep it at the 23rd, but if we get a place sooner we can adjust. Papers are coming electronically to sign soon.
