Finish Work

Bricking The Front

Bricking The Side

Bricking the Low Side

Bricking the Back

Bookshelf with books and things on it


Lamp Installed

The Living Room Is Starting To Look Like a Living Room

Mullions Added to Half Wall

Original Grate back in action
With the open house about a month and a half out we have been trying to tie up all the tasks that have been left hanging, and get things looking presentable.  With this we finally folded because of time and it looks like we might be having a few small pieces of work contracted out so we can effectively clean, organize and get the lawn into shape before the 14th.  That being said the progress still continues some days better than others, but that is the nature of all things.  Personally it was a pretty big victory to finally put up our artwork and books on the bookcase, it really had the effect of making at least one of the rooms feel like a home and not a project space.  What I think though I am looking forward to the most is being able to hang up pictures, which is actually kind of absurd if you really think about it.  The one thing that I am looking forward to the most punches nails through fresh paint and fixed drywall...  That being said it looks like we might actually pull this thing off and have some time to enjoy life this summer.
