After weeks and weeks of early mornings, late nights, and long days...finally...we're putting the house back together!

Until this point, we've been doing demo and repair.  We've had piles of smelly, smoky, dirty drawers and cabinet doors lying around.  We've been mopping and scrubbing the dirt and crud from the walls.  We've been filling a giant trailer with beyond repair house pieces and parts.

But now, it's time for the really fun part!  The interior of the house is going to be two-toned.  An antique white will be on the trim, ceiling, and cabinet doors - a tan color will be on the walls.  This photo is of the kitchen with the trim color on - the base tan color will be on the soffit above the trim.

The most significant note today is that there are cabinet doors hung - it's starting to look like a kitchen again :-)

The exterior of the house was a disaster, and a huge time consuming project.  Although we could have done the work ourselves, we just didn't have the bandwidth this time.  It pained us to hire it out, but it sure is nice to have an extra set of hands there today.  The exterior was pressure washed last week, and today the painter is scraping and caulking. It should be just a few days before he can put paint up on the exterior.

Before you know it, we'll be placing the new appliances and installing new carpet.
