Appraisal done, mantel installed just in time
It's been a crazy morning .... well last few days actually. We furiously toted and unpacked and stuffed and cleaned and hung pictures and touched up paint and cleaned out mouse dropping out of sock drawers. All done just in time for Renee to come appraise the place for our refinance. She loved it, took pictures, looked at plans, and commented all the way through how beautiful it was. She even asked how much we paid for the renovation which hopefully will give her a context for where we need the appraisal to come in. Our cleaning lady comes this afternoon and she's going to faint to see how much we've gotten done since she was here two weeks ago. I told Jim this morning as he was installing the mantel (a piece of the tree we previously used as our old window ledge) and helping us hang the Avignon picture that the fireplace alone should bring at least 100K! More pictures later but enjoy what I'm looking at right now from my couch potato position. Judy made sure the mountains were visible too. There's something about that view that opens the soul....let's hope it did for Renee!
