House update – 2009-12-30

Well, the pre-move in painting was finished a week and a half ago. Here’s the living room now:


And the bedroom:


That’s a big improvement over before, don’t you think? FYI, that’s about $300 worth of paint and supplies there – never let anyone tell you painting is “cheap”.

I’ve also changed out the light switch in the bedroom for an electronic dimmer switch with a remote control, and replaced all the old bi-metal thermostats with triac-based digital ones that are accurate and also tell me the actual room temperature.

Amazingly, for Christmas I got a significant amount of ‘money’ in the form of Lowe’s and Home Depot gift cards. Go figure. 🙂
