We have painted Gables

The gable ends of the house are finished. Just a bit of the eaves on the sides of the house to paint.

Upstairs, the new window is put in, and the drywall has been installed. Now to add the texture and paint!

This place has come a long way in the past three years we have lived here.

Here is a link to our house on our Realtor's website.

The End is in Sight!

We are almost finished with the work on the house! The only thing left to do is paint the gable ends of the house and the eaves, paint the upstairs, put up the handrail, finish the paint trim on the deck and Ed is going to paint the shop. Then we are finally finished with everything! Praise the Lord. Now we can sit back and just maintain things until it sells.

I am so happy because my son and his family are moving to Virginia with us! A prayer answered for sure. : ) Now I will get to be close enough to watch my grandson and granddaughter grow.

July already!

How did July get here already? The month of June was a bit rainy and we didn't get too much finished on the house because of it.

Ed did the drywall upstairs, which is now waiting for base coat and then paint.

We have gotten some nice things done on the outside of the house recently. We put in two flower beds, planted some shrubs and trimmed up the roses. Looks rather nice if I do say so myself. : )

Hopefully we will be getting our new roof on the house the end of the month.

Not too many lookers at the house. Each time someone schedules an appointment, they cancel due to sickness or some other reason.

I painted the front steps and hand rails finally. Today I will finish that up and Ed is going to put up the trim around the windows that he got painted.

My Dad came over yesterday and mowed all the grounds for us. That is such a help!

Besides doing all the work on the house we have put in our vegetable garden. Not knowing when the house will sell, we felt we had to go ahead with the garden.

Our cherries were ransacked by the raccoons one night. We did get about a 5 gallon bucket full anyway. Thankfully one tree has too small of branches, that won't hold their weight and we got most of the cherries from that tree.

We are taking the day off tomorrow and celebrating the 4th of July. We will be having a BBQ with family at our house, and then later driving to Bandon to watch the fireworks.

Happy 4th to everyone.
