The main goal was to get the house secured for winter and that is pretty much where we stand at this point. I was hoping to get some work done over Christmas break, but ended up coming down with a terrible cold so I did not accomplish much.
The next big task is to get the house insulated. There are several options for insulation and I am kind of dragging my feet as to what I’d like to do. There is traditional insulation or I could go with Roxul, which is a top-of-the-line product that has gained recent high reviews.
I’ve also done a bit of research how I could put insulation in the ceiling yet keep some of the rafters exposed. I am also continuing to search Pinterest and other interior design sites for ideas. The more ideas I see, the more confused I become.
I continue to feel like I am in a holding pattern as I still have not had any luck selling my townhouse. I am not in the position to be able to afford two houses, so I am nervous to proceed with any large projects until I have a lead on selling my house.
The funny thing is that right now I feel I have too many houses. One I disparately need to sell and one that is not done yet. If I were to sell quickly, I’d have no livable house so it would be a race to see how much we could get done in a short time frame.
I thought that once we got the house closed in that I would feel like I had made it over a big hurdle, however, right now a livable house seems so far off.
