Our Home In Progress

Here ya go... I got some pictures together that i took of our home project we started. What were we thinking?? We knew for years it was something that had to be done. This was the time to tackle it. I'm so excited we started this but at the same time i want it done NOW. LOL I know some of you ladies can relate to that.

We are having a dumpster delivered today. The pile of old siding in the yard covered with plastic looks like a beached whale.
My SIL was helping Saturday while i was watching my granddaughters. My daughter had to work.
One of our close friends who is a contractor and has sided a few houses stopped over last night and told us we do not have to remove the wood siding on the house. (just the asphalt shingles) We can wrap & side right over it. Yippee what a relief!
This job may take us all summer to complete. But we know the end result will be beautiful. Praise God!! I can't wait! We decided not to replace the saufet on the house. That alone saved us a lot of $. All the windows and doors have been replaced already. Foundation will be painted after the siding is completed. Gutters will be replaced as well. I have included a little Slideshow Here for you to see the progress we are making. I will post updates as we make them. Please Enjoy!

Thanks for visiting my little Korner of the Web.
