we are in the midst of remodeling. We got the carpets bathrooms and kitchen cleaned before we moved in, but I wish we had replaced the floors and painted before . and had the ducts professionally cleaned. Once the painters are done we will. We have cleaners come in every two weeks to assist in keeping the house clean while all the remodeling is done.

The last thing I wanted to do was paint first. I needed to live in it a bit & see what colors really spoke to me. My place is 100 yo & the new "color of the year" just wasn't gonna cut it.

What I DID do...have my home blessed. Ran a deed search to get a more precise build date (I knew 1935 was way off!) and lastly....took my time & let the place speak to me. What I may have changed on day one...I'd never change today!

What about granite counter tops, especially in the bathroom.. Do they need to be sealed periodically?
