Hello! We have been really busy with church, baseball, and work. Plus, I was out of town this weekend for a conference. Anyway, here are some progress pictures of the house! We're kind of entering the home stretch...
Our giant dirt pile is gone! We'll have to do something with all this dirt-- grass? I don't know. Also, the addition is primed and the whole thing should be painted tomorrow.
You can see our french doors leaning against the front porch, too.
The progress is amazing! They should be done in six weeks or so. The thing we're most looking forward to, though, is having a door back on the bathroom.
The sheet gives limited privacy, but it'll be nice to have a solid door.
I spent the weekend visiting friends (and running a half marathon! Woot!) while Eric and the kids enjoyed a visit from Nana and Pops. I'm not sure that there are many pictures of any of that. We did have a relaxing evening after dinner tonight.
The other thing we have now is real stairs to the basement! No more scary small boards! Look at these beauties!
They are so pretty! We also have a lot of baseboards AND a bathroom door that opens the right direction.
Sorry for the lack of updates-- we had all the drywall installed, mudded, and sanded, and the house is still kind of a disaster zone. Every time I finish dusting, more dust settles. That's why I haven't been taking any pictures. We also got hit with Hurricane Matthew. Luckily, our only branches fell *between* the cars. Phew! We spent a nice evening playing games by candlelight, but a lot of our neighbors weren't so lucky.
Anyway, hopefully we're back and working through the dustiest part of this addition. We got tile floors and cabinets since my last update! Ignoring the toilet in the bathtub, look how amazing the kids' bathroom is:
Our bathroom is going to pretty sweet, too:
Frankly, any bathroom would be amazing right now. Our only toilet is in the room behind the sheet. To get into that bathroom, you have to climb over the pile of trim and shelf boards. That pile should shrink this week, but it'll be nice to have more than one toilet again AND doors.
