House Progress: 1 July 2010

News on the home front isn't very thrilling.  The work we've been up to lately isn't showing much progress.  Instead, we've had to tear things up in order to fix major problems.  It all needs done and I'm glad we are catching the problems as we go, it just isn't exciting for weekly updates!

Dad came over (on his birthday, poor guy) and helped tear out the bad section of floor in the main bathroom.  It was SO dusty in there I couldn't get a clear picture.  We about sent him into a asthma attack with him inhaling all of that dust.  We did have mask, but you know, thought of that after the fact!

In this picture, Mom was saying "Why are you taking my picture?  I'm not doing anything!".  I just wanted to make sure I got pictures of each stage and those who stopped by to help at any point.

Nathan was framing in my closet last night!  Because of needing extra space in the master bathroom, I lost 2 feet from my closet!  It's ok though... I just have to remember it is still a bigger space than what I have now!

See the gaping hole in that end of the house?  Yeah, there use to be a door there which we are framing in.  When we ripped it out though, the floor and door frame area was rotted out pretty much where you see the hole... nice!  Nathan had to get more materials to fix that issue, so he moved on to something he could at least get done last night!

I somehow missed getting a picture of these helpers, but Matt, Evan and Gary Cutler came over the other evening and mowed the lawn for us.  It was getting out of control and we haven't had our rider or the time to get it taken care of.  Thank you!  We sure appreciated the help!

Wow! You guys are hardcore. You're really ripping stuff out and it looks like you're doing most of the projects yourself. Super ambitious! I can't wait to see the progress!
