the end of construction

the picture below shows the house in the middle of construction…the blue tarp covering the original house after we took out the windows and ripped off the siding. the yard was a disaster…and during the middle of the summer it was not fun with 2 little ones who wanted to go out and play.
the picture below shows the old and the new…of course we decided to replace a few of the old windows on the left….Caroline’s room is the 2 windows on the second floor…it was a cave with out any natural light.

the doors and windows went in…October 2008…just in time as the days and nights got cold!

after a few construction set backs….the porch was put on almost 10 months and 2 summers later!!!  August 2009

porch done, siding finished and yard re-seeded!!
and finally..last weekend….patio done!

That is a HUGE project! WOW! Love the new patio and I am J.E.A.L.O.U.S. of that screen porch. That is on our someday list. We can't enjoy the deck 95% of the summer b/c of the bugs. :(

So...when's the housewarming party?
