Housetop to bottom


Went back to the renovation site this morning. Now that the rain has gone away, the metal siding and roofing guys are going at it full steam. I think it's shaping up pretty well...

This was going to be a secret hideout. Instead, it's where the a/c and heating unit rests.

The polycarbonate by the side door is up. The back door area is pretty much done, too. These parts look really slick.

The crew cutting siding and deciding where the screws will go in the roofing...

This is what water heaters look like now. No Master Cylinder lurking in our backyard.

The kitchen is almost done. You can see the counter looping up onto the ceiling and turning into an eating surface. We still have to treat it with oil. The wood that covers the vent duct still has to be painted white, too.

This is the master bath. The custom vanities are up, and so are the stock IKEA medicine cabinets. Looks like we need a shower curtain and rod.

One of my favorite things about the house is that its front is still intact. There are new windows, refinished floors, and a fresh paint job, but it's basically the old form.

New lamp, though... We got it from DWR for 60 percent off with free shipping!

From the street, our house doesn't look obnoxious or scream "New!" at passersby--just a hint with the soon-to-be white metal box peeking over the top.

The house is cruising along. Now it's time to get the landscaping plan in motion.

Matty said over the knee powder on Wednesday morning. Sorry! Other seasons of skiing only one major remodel.
