Finally, a few pics of the house.
This before shot was when I realized I forgot to take a before shot, after taping up the windows and doors.
This is the side of the garage, facing the street.
As you can see, our house was bare wood and dark brown trim. Well, not bare wood, it was treated T-111 siding. But, yuck! I hated it! And so many people loved it-my mom loved it, my girlfriend loved it, random people walking down the street while we were painting loved it. I don't get it, but to each their own I suppose.
Here's an in process shot-
Have I mentioned how much I love that man? And that one of the things I love about him is his ability to do anything? Seriously, we have never had to hire anyone to do a damn thing for us. (well, except for snake the drain, but that was a choice. We didn't feel like renting a snake, and have me try to help him get the thing on the roof, etc...) There is a huge freedom in that.
We still need to trim around the front door-
But basically we're done except for a few trim spots here and there.
I'm pretty frickin proud of the whole deal actually. Not bad, and I basically got to hang out with my husband and drink beer all day.
We have officially made our house our home. I love that feeling.
