And this is how we lived for about 4 months. We actually hung our tv right on one of the studs.. it was kinda funny!!!
Seeing as this was our first big renovation on the house I was a little niave in how long it would actually take. I would like to point out that since we have radiators we can easily section off one half of the house, live in one side, renovate in the other side and not worry about constant dust! SO that was nice. BUT when you live in a 900 sq ft house and 1/3 of it is sectioned off it gets VERY squishy!!! From May until mid August we lived in half of our house, we could not use the front door so we had to get into the house via the back door. When we needed to turn the heat up we had to run around the house, through the front door and turn the heat up in there. We had a love seat sitting in our eat in kitchen across from the fridge with the tv positioned on a table only a few feet away. We literally had our bedroom, bathroom and kitchen and that was it! The rest of the house was full of furniture or was in the renovation section! NOW May was a VERY rainy month... which meant a LOT of being stuck in about 400 sq ft of space that is so crammed full of furniture that you can't move!!! Does that paint a picture of life for us for 4 months!!! It was tough and it was a real pain in the butt!!!! But we survived!! Stay tune for part 2 of the renovation, gutting the rooms and the rebuild!!
