As you can see from this photo, a lot of work has been done. The whole house has been landscaped, which makes a huge difference in how it looks. Also the front lights have been put up. The river pebbles have been put down for the parking, giving the exterior an almost finished look.
I am putting a new front and back door in (actually bought them today). Once that is done, a front awning will be built, the mailbox will be put in, a small fence will be put on the right of the house, and finally the front landing will be painted. Then the exterior of the house will be done! Here are some pictures of the exterior:
The inside of the house has changed a lot! The main difference is that the cabinets are installed and stained, though the window trim is up and the ceilings are painted as well. Johnny and I spent two very long days getting the cabinets installed. Once in place they looked great and really made it look like a kitchen. The next day was spent staining all day long (once I got the right mixtures of stain to get the color I wanted). The cabinets looked great. Today my painter put a coat of poly on them and really made them stand out.
Besides for the cabinets, I also bought my appliances. I got range and microwave that are both convection cookers as well, and a dishwasher. All three are stainless steel. I only bought them this early because I got a great deal on them.
Johnny also got the trim up for all the windows, which looks great! Here are some photos, and please note that the cabinets look way way better in person (the flash made some of them look weird):
Again I'm sorry that it has taken me so long to update this blog. But a ton of work has been done, and everything is starting to come together to form a house.
