Here’s the latest house update. We have a porch!!
The roof is on. The tar paper is on. There isn’t a ceiling yet but that will come after the electricians are there to put some lighting in the porch-or at least that’s what Hubby said.
The house looks like it has had the porch for years…I think that’s how we know we did the right thing by adding it.
They started in on the shingling. Monday looks like more work for the carpenters on the porch.
Once that is done, they’ll be on to putting up the garage. I am told once that’s up we pray for electricians to squeeze us in and the carpenters start siding…slow and steady and we’ll get her done.
In the mean time, there is still work for us to do. We have some cleaning and tidying to do and then there are those floor boards…more to clean.
Kelli was a sweetie and offered to clean boards for the afternoon for Hubby’s birthday present (It’s his birthday today!). It was the best present!!
All of the boards from the old farm house are cleaned. We just have some left that came from the part of our house that we tore off. They are in the middle pile.
The four rows to the right still need attention. It’s a slow boring job but we’re getting closer. I asked Hubby to stop and take time to count to see if we have enough floor boards…he said, “Can’t stop, we have to keep working!”..Isn’t that the truth??
I’ll be back to the house on Sunday afternoon to scrap boards again…
I can’t wait!! oops typo! I’ll admit I’m getting tired of the boring job but we are getting within striking distance of being finished.
All in all we’re really happy with the house and how it’s coming together. Pretty soon I’ll need to start considering paint colors for the interior. Anyone have any suggestions on which brand of paint to buy?? I’m going for least expensive but good quality.
..and that my friends is the latest on the house!
