Back to the house renovations. I’ve gotta be honest about that “before” picture I posted last week of the exterior of our house: it really never looked that bad. It was quite lovely in fact. In that photo, the shutters had already been removed, leaving behind dusty shadows around the windows, all the porch furniture and flowers and door wreath were missing, and, to top it off, it was gray and overcast outside. Sort of like the personal makeover pics that show women with no make-up, greasy hair and a scowl on their faces. If that’s the standard we use, then I’m a makeover candidate every single morning (scowl included — I’m not much for mornings).
But anyway, that photo was definitely for exaggerated effect. Progress is moving along in other areas as well. Here are some photos of the rear of the house (compare to these from a few weeks ago):
And the side:
The porch is almost done (one more week) but the guys have spent most of their time and energy working on the inside lately. The dry wallers came over the weekend so now the rooms are actually taking shape.
And the brand new and super fabulous bay window in our bedroom:
More soon, I hope!
