It’s been another week or so, and sure enough, time marches on at the Bobcat Lair. It needs to, since the rest of the things in my Braesgate house have to be packed and brought over there (by my friends the expensive movers) sometime next week, before we hand it over to the new people! (The movers have a bit less to move, since our wonderful neighbors, who we will miss very much, have raided the garage and removed a number of bulky items—the same folks who are “de-cluttering” just took my clutter. We also sold them the freezer. YES.)
Back on Cat Mountain, where the bobcat is resurrecting itself, the new walls have been taped and floated, and the old walls and ceilings have been made smooth and beautiful. When we went by, they’d just finished the taping and floating. By the time you read this, the texturing will be up, and who knows, maybe some flooring will be laid? Or some paint applied?
OK, I settled down and found the project plan, which indicates trim is next. Then painting, and then flooring. I wonder when cabinetry happens? The mysteries of renovation are many.
The most important other thing that happened with the project is that I found the mail key, so I got the mail turned back on there. That means I can officially “live” there, so I got my driver’s license moved over. I have always wanted to live in Travis County, Texas. It’s been a LONG wait to officially live in this house, so this step is important.
So, here are the same rooms you saw last time, only smoother. Don’t forget to scroll down past the gallery, because I have some groveling and begging to do.
Meanwhile, I’ll keep plugging along with the social media. My team have promised to post more fun stuff on our Facebook page, and I will share some of it here in the blog. Did you know that you can help me with my social media goals? You don’t have to be a guest blogger (but that would be fun!). All you need to do is write a comment on a blog post or Facebook post. It doesn’t have to be a literary masterpiece—I’ve appreciated the comments that just say, “Hey, that was interesting!”
You see, the more comments, likes and (ooh) forwards a post gets, the more likely it is to show up in the feeds of our followers, who can then like and share with their own friends. We get many of our leads on houses and private money lenders from among our social media contacts, so the more people who see us, the more we can talk to and perhaps help sell a house or make money!
I’ll even thank you in the blog if you share or comment. For example, thanks to Mary Baker for commenting not too long ago!
