House Progress: 14 August 2010

We are finally starting to SEE improvements again on the house remodel.  The plumber came in last week and got that project completed.  Remember, the previous homeowner ripped out all of the copper pipes so we had to start all over!

The biggest project as of late has been ripping off two layers of siding and pulling out the old windows.  This past Saturday Nathan had some help and they were able to pull the rest of the siding, wrap the house AND install all of the windows!  From the outside it doesn't look like the same house! =)  Even on the inside, having the new windows installed makes a BIG difference! 

Thank you to Phil, Ben, Matt and Nathaniel for all of your help! 
We REALLY appreciate it!

Evan... catching more toads!

Now we just need to have a party and roast some hot dogs on our large burn pile! =)

We hope to have the drywall crew inside by the end of the week.  I have a lot to clean up inside and Nathan needs to set the guest bathtub before.  I'm encouraged after seeing progress though, so bring it on! =)
