We did that.
We began with the painting project.
Empty house. Real easy.
Until you realize that the walls haven't seen a coat of paint in YEARS. And everything needs two coats of primer and two to three coats of color.
|First day of first step|
|Part of the kitchen|
The roof leaks.
And you bought the house "as is".
|New roof going on|
|Side deck wood rot|
|Ripping out for the rebuild|
But, slowly, with a new Home Depot card, it begins to take shape.
Today, the back deck was partially replaced and made liveable.
|Goodbye to the spa hole (yes, a hole in the deck from a hottub)|
And the master bedroom was finally painted.
And I learned something. As much as I am a Green Bay fan, I also love the 49ner's. I didn't know I loved them enough to use their colors throughout my house!
Did I say I like red??????
Soon. Oh, so soon, I can taste it. We will be living here.
There will still be projects but I can do them when I feel like it. (And when I can afford it!)
Soon. Oh, so soon, I can sit on my deck and watch my oak trees,
and my fruit trees,
and the hummingbirds that can't be owned
Soon, oh, so soon.
