I’ve been meaning to post this for weeks now, but things got busy. We had new siding put on our house in mid-February. It was supposed to be done in plenty of time before our baby arrived, but she had other plans. So we brought her home to workers banging on the side of the house for a couple of days. Luckily, it bothered me more than her. Here’s the final result…please excuse the shadows on the “after” photo. Next up: a painted front door and landscaping.
Last weekend we took on another fairly large home project – staining our deck. The previous homeowners had neglected it – the stain had wore off on the horizontal surfaces, and the wood was peeling horribly. After several hours of cleaning, power washing, and sanding, we were finally ready. It was pushing 100 degrees last weekend, so we got up early and spent both Saturday and Sunday morning staining. The finished product – Redwood Natural semi-transparent – turned out quite nice, if you ask me.
For those of you who have been asking, here are a few photos of our new home. We moved March 9, and of course it took us awhile to unpack and settle in. Here are a few long overdue photos.
One of the first projects in our new home was replacing our entryway light. Check out the before and after and let me know you think.
After a very long week of packing, cleaning, painting, moving, and unpacking, we have officially moved into our first house. A big thank-you to all of our family who made the move go so quickly a smoothly.
It’s official – my husband and I are homeowners! We closed on a house this afternoon. Now just four long days until we get possession…
