Not even sure how many days this has taken since I've been fussing with her outlets for the past week.

At one point DHEC was coming to inspect her house (because you have to pass certain safety inspections in order to provide foster care in your home). I said "Is this going to be a problem? I left a hot outlet dangling out of your wall for the past week and someone could totally die from that."

Thankfully she could reschedule her appointment, and I got the outlets squared away this weekend:
(one of the 5 cabinets I built was slightly out of square. You can see that in this picture but whatever.)

We moved the TV and everything off her old entertainment center so she could finally get it out of the house. The entertainment center, I mean.

Even though it's not finished, at least it's somewhat functional for the time being. We'll be working on the bookcases next.

About Me

My photo
For many years I was a mechanical engineer by day, a house renovator by night, and a single mom. I previously built a tiny house on Tybee Island that I sold in 2015. Then I lost my day job, met Prince Charming, and now work full time demolishing (fixing) his lake house. ;) Stop by for the house stuff, stay for the never-ending disasters, pianos falling out of the sky, floods, threats of financial ruin, & panic attacks. It's like house flipping meets the zombie apocalypse! with lots of kids!
