Week 10 - Beautiful Street Side View

I sure will be glad to see a "for sale" sign go up because the Mr. is exhausted and could use a few days off.

The big parade of inspectors started this week with the electrical giving us a thumbs up.

I have no doubt the neighbors are thrilled that what once looked like this...

Now looks like this!

Sure, just new windows, french doors, custom made shutters, landscaping, removal of the Swiss chalet, replacing shingles and gutters, paint, and various other repairs and you have a nice new sparkly front.

The kitchen counters went in yesterday and the tile is down. This is totally not my idea of a kitchen color scheme, but we are sticking with the home buyer's latest fashion trend. Ten years hence this will likely get replaced by a retro pink and avocado kitchen. Sigh.

Half bath all done. Check.

I love the warm look of the hallway with the brand new doors.

They are working their way in from the two ends of the house. So now the core is all that remains; kitchen finish and hardwood floors for the living room / dining room.

  1. It looks fantastic!! The shutters and the landscaping in the front are beautiful and I really like your floor tile in the kitchen. We went with a lighter color when we remodeled a couple of years ago and it is blaaaaaa. I like yours much better.

    Sending the Mr. some rejuvenating rottie nuzzles! He's done a beautiful job and he's ALMOST there!!
