The End is Near....

Front door trim.
I still need to paint the door, but I need to wait for warmer weather. I'm hoping we'll get a couple  more nice days before Old Man Winter visits.

 A cleaning bee last week. We took a little lunch break and enjoyed some pizza.

My mom and sister helping out with the painting. Well, maybe just my mom helping with the painting. My sister was quick to let us know she doesn't do painting. LOL! I still love you Robbi Girl!

Our attic is nicely insulated. Not a job I'd want to do everyday, but I always wondered how they spray insulate attics.
 
As you can see, progress is being made, but there is still lots to be done. We were expecting to be in last week, but it looks like it may be this week sometime instead. We're okay with that, though. I still have so much painting to do!

The Painting Has Begun….

Well, I finally started painting the walls. I’m not much for painting, but I am all for saving money by doing it myself.
Painting is almost one of the worst jobs for me, but when you put some great music on, turn it up, and start moving….
 
It’s not so bad!

Thank you Bud the Spud!
 
That’s all I have for tonight. I’ll be sure to post more as everything progresses.
