We have a working kitchen, a table and I recently helped the delivery man carry a large wood cabinet for dishes down several narrow streets to our house. This is such an improvement that we recently had our first guests for Sunday pranzo.
|Our kitchen before and now.
I have installed a shower box so that so that we aren’t washing the entire room each time we take a shower. We have a washing machine so we don’t have to make trips to Potenza to wash clothes.
Our bedroom is actually starting to look like one. Since I installed shelves we can now hang clothes in our closet and we have night stands to accent our bed. No more sorting through piles of clothes on the floor everyday for something to wear.
Friends have generously given us a couch which we carried down those narrow streets to the house. I am becoming very familiar with this activity; perhaps a second calling for me in the delivery business. We still have bare walls, a few bare light bulbs and many ideas of what we want to do. This is a process to change a house into a home and this is just the beginning.
