What Would I Do Different With the House?

I keep forgetting to mention one thing I would have done differently with the house, if we had thought to make it happen: I would have added an electrical outlet in the floor of the kitchen (near the table) for laptops and such. That would have been handy.

For someone who might put a kitchen island in where we have our daughter’s medical stander, you could add an outlet there, too.

Another thing (mentioned in the book) is using plain cement for tile grout rather than cement/sand mixture.

I am amazed at how many things I just really wouldn’t change, though.  🙂  I love this house.

For those of you interested in the controversy, I hope to post wall stats (temps, humidity levels, presence or absence of condensation) SOON!

About Christa Upton

I am a wife and mother of three children ages 11, 14, and 18. I used to be a stay-at-home mom (teaching piano & dance, volunteering, etc). From 2007 to 2010, I suffered accidental Toxic Injury (also called Multiple Chemical Sensitivity or MCS). MCS has had major impact on our family, but the forced time in bed has given me time to write. So far, I have published 4 children's books (2 in e-book format on Kindle, one in Print-on-Demand at CreateSpace, and one printed by a local printer). Sometimes I miss my old life, but I love writing for children!

    Hi Christa,
    I followed a link from Domestic Serenity to your blog. I am also a homeschooling mother with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, and I am also homebound. I’ll keep you in prayer!
