The House…So Close, Yet So Far

Hey everyone!

Well, you will NOT believe all that’s been done on the house since my last post on February 27th. We have come so far, but still have a way to go. I chronicled up to the 21st because things were happening so fast, I couldn’t keep up with them. I’ve got so many photos downloaded that I have to edit, that I was overwhelmed and didn’t do anything. Very productive of me. I can’t believe I didn’t do a single post in the month of March! Yikes. Anyway, let’s see if I can get this ball rolling again and get you updated. Ok, February 27th was my last update. Wow, I really need to get my stuff together. Here we go.

Here are both tubs installed. The bow front is in the master and the shower/tub combo is in the hall bath.

Gosh I was pretty excited at that point. That was 2/27 and the house still isn’t done. The brick was started right after this. That got me really excited.

There is a brick skirt on both sides and the back and the front is completely bricked. I wish we could have done brick on all four sides, but it’s just too expensive.

That last picture is my craft room. I just love that room. That awesome window let’s in so much light. I can’t wait to get in there. While the brick was getting done the HVAC was going in. That’s not very exciting, but let me see if I have any pictures.

See, not exciting, but a huge step closer to drywall. There are a million things that need to get done before drywall can go in. Another one of those big things is electric. This was fun to watch. I just don’t know how these guys learn all this stuff. There was wire everywhere. I actually wish I knew how it all worked.

I didn’t get many pics of the wiring, but you’ll be able to see it in other pics I’ve taken.  Up next…siding!  Yay!  This really made the house look like a house and look really awesome.

Amazing change right? I love how the back of the house looks.

So that’s what it looks like done – on the outside anyway. So much more has to be done. My next post I will show you the central vac my hubby and I installed and you’ll see the insulation go in and finally the drywall. I’ll have another post for you soon, I promise.

Untill next time…
