Making Progress

Well here it is Saturday at last. Another week has gone by and FINALLY we can see progress!!!!

To the right you can see the back of our house as it was when we bought it. Our construction of the new bathroom and the expansion of the master bedroom has begun. This week we have had workers everywhere. One crew working on the outside and then ourselves and others working on the inside. Remodeling and constructing at the same time, plus working 40 hours........I'm beat.
It does feel good to see our house begining to come together the way that we want it to. It is hard work and we still have a long way to go, but step by step and one day at a time we will get it there.

Lindsey has enjoyed getting to walk from school in the afternoons to the new house. She also has liked helping with some of the work. She really likes pulling out nails......and there sure has been ALOT of them to pull out. Hartsul also likes to work on the house and of course being a boy has had to explore the huge dirt pile in the back yard. Both kids are excited about the house and we like that they want to be a part of getting it the way we want it.
I'll try to keep you up to date as we go along.


  1. oh wow jeanette! its going to look awesome!! Our boys like all the construction stuff too!
    Have a great week!

  2. Hey Jeanette, things are looking good. I could NEVER remodel. Lins and Jay sanded their dining room floor and the dust from that was tooo overwhelming for me. I couldn't imagine construction, etc.
    Guess my age is showing, but the end result will sure be beautiful! Keep sending the pictures, I love them!
