Posts have been wrapped. Now I just need to paint the doors a nice maroon color and put the edge piece on the porch floor and the exterior is DONE!!

We spent a beautiful Saturday working on the porch. It was nice a sunny, and would have been really warm if it hadn't been for the wind. All in all, it was a great day and we got a lot of back-breaking work done. Now we have to take a day or so to nurse our sore muscles.

I officially moved into the house on February 14th. Talk about a big change! The house is still currently "under construction" but my private quarters are 99% done. I just need to hang some pictures and decorate.
Last night we had a nice dinner at my house, finished off with a slice of cake from Sweet Sensations! It was a very nice celebration.
Lucy spent a good deal of time inspecting her new surroundings. She only stayed for the first night so far and will be back once all the sawing and noise making is finished. For such a big change, she did pretty well. I think she'll really like the new house too.
She did miss the outside, but once she's acclimated to her new environment, we will add the cat door.
My bedroom walls got painted too (2 of them) a nice purple color, its called grappa by Benjamin Moore. I wasn't sure how I'd like it as such a bold color, but it looks wonderful and I am glad I chose it.
Oh, and as promised, here is a shot of the unfinished attic space. Still needs lots of work, but its not high on the priority list right now. It will be a great space however.
Back to homework and enjoying my new home!

Well, its been a while since I posted, but we haven't been sitting on our laurels, for we have been hard at work doing trim. It all looks the same, but boy, is it time consuming.
Below is a shot of the headers. I think they look fantastic. The little details really do add a lot.
And we started the shelving in the pantry. Not finished yet, but I needed a place to put my Vegemite and my Belgian beer (oops, I drank it already)!
We have decided, move-in date has been set: February 14! And we are going to celebrate with a chocolate raspberry cake from Sweet Sensations in Rockland! Yum!
So now I need to start boxing up all my stuff to move in. Actually, I already have lots of stuff in the attic (I forgot about the attic ~ stay tuned for pictures).
Boy, do I LOVE THIS HOUSE!

The kitchen counter came in this week and I think it looks great! I have more counter space then I thought. So exciting!
We also painted the dinning room walls. I took a ton of pictures hoping to capture the exact green. This was the closest, but it doesn't really do it justice. It's the best green! No wonder it's my favorite color!
