House Update!

Anyone else having problems with Blogger? I am having trouble posting and loading photos and have lost several past posts. Sure hope they are not completely gone. :(

Anyway....here is an update on the house. My sister calls me from work earlier and said "you don't have your house photos on your blog" So here they are...

This is the front view. The porch and porch post are not stained yet but the siding and trim on the front are done. Richard got that done a few days ago.
Here is the front door. Yep, it is not finished yet! Still has the paint and primer both on it. Too windy to finish the painting right now, the paint was drying before it could be spread. He also go the lights hung too. Not too bad considering this door was FREE! Some friends of ours were changing their front door a couple of years ago and we took their old one. It just needed to be sanded and repainted.
Up close photo of the light and siding. Still have the paper on the door windows until the painting is finished.
It is getting a little closer to being finished. A little at a time...
Waiting for the big storm to hit here in a little while. The wind is horrible right now but will be getting worse.
Richard has classes tonight, so it will just be me and the boys! Hunter and I will be stuffing his treat bags for his Halloween party at school.

The house looks great! We remodeled three houses in the last few years - had a 100 year old one moved onto 10 acres, moved and updated another, then remade a 2400 sq ft, 100+ year old church into a four bedroom house. When we moved this last time, I wanted one ALL done.

I think the last time I saw photos it was still just timbers inside with flooring down and some scary looking steps! You must be getting so excited. It is going to be beautiful! I love the front door with the side windows. They let in so much light and I LOVE the light fixtures.

Your house looks fantastic! I can't believe you all built that with your own hands. What a legacy you will leave for your kids.

I was wondering what happened to those other posts. I haven't been having any issues with Blogger, but I'm sure there have been some!

Thanks for the house pics! I love the color of the siding and the door and those lights look great. It sure has come a long way! :)

Kristie, your house is beautiful. You guys have done a great job on it. I haven't lost any posts on blogger, but went through a period when it wouldn't let me put any pictures up. Hope you continue to feel better.
