Then and Now

Looking into the bathroom on August 2
Just a quick update on the house. . .
We hope to break ground on the addition on Monday! 
Bob the Builder has been working with us the last two days, and having 3 people working full time really allowed us to fly through some of the paneling work. Greta's room is looking very finished with ceiling and wall paneling up; the guest room's ceiling is finished, and I cut over 60 boards for wall paneling today; the front entry has a reinforced floor with freshly poured concrete over warming cables--our bathroom and front hall (and the rest of the house for that matter) will be heated with warm water cables running beneath the wood floor or tile. So toasty! 

We have 6 weeks left on our lease, and I'm beginning to get a little nervous!

ceiling panels in place, wall paneling in place, all electrical work done.
Time to build a bed!

  1. It all looks amazing! We have the water-warming system in our house, too, and we've been extremely happy with it. Boy do your pictures bring back memories. :-) Keep going! Good luck!
