Paint Party- House Update

Tracy / February 20, 2014

I haven’t been so good at posting house updates. I guess I’ve been busier working than posting. 🙂 Saturday, many of the teens and young adults from our church popped over and helped prime the new kitchen and dining room for paint. What would have taken us HOURS and HOURS, took the whole group much less time. I guess the…

House Updates…

Tracy / February 12, 2014

Sickness slows us down, but can’t stop the progress. We still don’t have a date set for the actual appraisal, but my due date is quickly approaching so I’m trying to find a place to stop while I welcome our new little one. This week (well, actually at the end of last week), our contractor finished hanging our drywall. He…

Organizing Socks and Smaller Clothing Items

Tracy / January 28, 2014

While the larger parts of our home have been receiving the most attention, I’ve also been spending some moments here and there on some smaller areas! This was my sock drawer last week: I’m not sure I even wore half of these socks, and one of the fun parts of big family life has been always having to look for…

House Update (Yesterday)

Tracy / January 28, 2014

These were taken in the middle of the day: They had finished hanging the drywall on the ceiling!!! By the end of day, some of our walls are up and mudding has started…. Drywall makes such a HUGE difference. I just can’t believe how different it looks.

Updates on House

Tracy / January 27, 2014

I’m so glad this work isn’t dependent on me these days! I can feel this third trimester this week. Our little one is stretching and kicking- I look forward to warm baths and putting my feet up! While I am working on smaller projects, I’m so thankful for the work being done in the house. These are pictures from yesterday:…

It’s Finished…

Tracy / January 23, 2014

At least the outside. (This is the metal bender that has been in our yard the better part of the year…I’m wondering if it might be gone soon??) We also have a new door for the inner part of the basement. THAT is a huge improvement. It still needs paint and hardware but it’s up, and in place and just…

Tuesday Update…

Tracy / January 16, 2014

Yep. We’re running a little behind on the updates. Tuesday was our monthly fellowship meeting. We’ve decided to cancel most of the more recent meetings since our home is one big construction zone. This time, we bit the bullet and pushed forward. Courtney made signs for the places we thought might not be safe for visitors. I’m so glad we…

Quick House Update

Tracy / January 14, 2014

I wanted to stop in and share some photos from the weekend. We have our fellowship meeting tomorrow (Yes! We are still meeting….), so I’m short on time tonight but I wanted to share a few anyway! Paul “manned-up” the basement. As he was trying to hang a paper towel holder in the basement, it broke. He decided to make…

Slow and Steady….

Tracy / January 6, 2014

We’re making some very slow, but very steady progress in the house. This week, found our contractor pretty much finishing the first half of the backside of our home. (At some point, I’ll post a photo from the ground. It’s too cold for this pregnant woman to venture out that far into the yard today!) He’ll be starting the remainder…

House Updates

Tracy / January 1, 2014

It’s hard to describe our home right now. There are several rooms in the middle of work- we’re trying to live in the middle of it all- and though there is progress, there is also just a big mess.  Every single place you look. I’ll be so glad when things get settled.  In the meantime, the pile (or bag, or…

House Remodel- Update

Tracy / December 30, 2013

I’ve apologized and apologized again, to my children this week. After sitting the cats outside over and over again- AND fussing at my children for letting them in– someone came to me and pointed out the following: Our contractor, bless his heart, opened the side of our home (just under the roof), to replace the wood and install the siding…
