Amber filling woodwork

Amber Hand modeling the wood filler
Well the one thing that wood filling and brick work have in common is they are both apparently slow, difficult, and boring really really boring.  That being said Amber finished the wood fill this weekend and had enough time to give roller derby a shot.  I was not so lucky and the brick continues on, and on. You might find yourself asking isn't there a light at the end of the tunnel, and I can distinctively say for the first time with certainty a resounding...Yes!  It looks like the brick will take another two on the outset three days to finish which will give Amber and I about two weeks of rest were we can clean the house and clean up the grounds for the Open House (Which will be on Saturday 6-14-2012 from 9am -5pm ).  So after three years Home is truly in the home stretch.
