Clean Up Day

Don't have any new pictures right now. Everything that is being done is stuff that doesn't really show up in a picture. The foam board insulation is all up in the basement. I have all the window trim and baseboard in the kitchen, livingroom and diningroom painted. Gary is on vacation this week so a lot more painting will get done. We are very close to being done. This Saturday is the last volunteer work day and is clean-up day. If anyone would like to come out and help, we could use your help. If you have rakes or shovels, you can bring those to help clean up and level out the yard. We have lots of machinery ruts.
I can't belive how far we have some since April 30th. I can't believe we will soon be in a house of our own!!!

a Little of This and a Little of That

Here's a picture of the front of the house with the new front steps and railings.

In the close-up you can see that the porch light is up. We also have a doorbell.

Lights were put in the bedroom closets and shelves. Here's a picture just for you Kara of your bedroom closet.

The hall linen closet. The bathroom linen closet also has shelves like these.
The faucets are in and the water is running. The dishwasher is all hooked up.

Here is the stove.

These are the lights we picked out for the kitchen, livingroom hall and bedrooms. The dining room light is different and not up yet. The bathroom light isn't up yet either. All the lights were donated by the NH Electric Co-op.

Here's the bathroom sink and potty. Faucets are all installed here too. And, no there isn't a huge light streak going down the drawers, it's just how the flash made them look.
Been busy getting all the trim and baseboard ready to paint. Spent a lot of time sanding today. Debbie started painting some of the doors today since we didn't need to prep them

Counter Top

I finally figured out how to download pictures to Mom's laptop. Here are some pictures of the kitchen with the countertop. I'll have to try and get over tomorrow and take some now that the stove and fridge are in. Gary and I put the knobs on the cabinet the other day.

A close-up of the counter top. The color is a little off but it gives you an idea of what it looks like.

The permanent steps were built for our entry porch on Friday. They look really nice. Gary has been working on getting the baseboards and window and door casings just how he wants. I'm just waiting till he gets to a point so I can start painting. I don't know what was done on Saturday, I haven't been back yet to see. There is a lot of little stuff to do and finish so it will take a little while and there is not a lot to take picures of. I will take what I can to keep everyone updated now that I know how to download onto mom's computer.
When I'm not working on the house or at the bakery, I'm sorting and trying to get things packed here at mom and dad's house.

Cabinets are in

Just a quick hi. The computer has been acting good the last couple of days so I decided to try to get some pictures put up here. These are a couple of weeks old. I need to get some updated pictures to put up. Here are the kitchen cabinets.

Here are the kitchen cabinets a couple of days later with the crown molding up. Paul, the site supervisor, had his finish carpenter put it up. He did a really fantastic job!!!!

And finally a close up of the crown molding.
I'll have to get some pictures today. A lot has happened since these were taken. Most of the interior doors are up, the dishwasher, washer and dryer are here and the counter top in in. The window and door trim is up and the baseboard is too. Just have to finish painting all that. I'll try to get some more pictures today. Have to get going...have to get a package sent off to Kara.
