Time for "Before & After"

Rob and I bought paint for the inside of the house last night! This is another milestone. It means there's no more demolishing, no more adding. We are truly FINISHING!

We thought it was about time for a before and after photo of the front of our little house.

Here we had been living in the house for about two years already. We had already laid hard wood throughout, relocated our bathroom and landry room, gutted and rebuilt the kitchen, gutted and drywalled the living room. By this time, we were definitely anxious to make the oustide of the house look better!!
After lifting it three feet, removing about 15 cedar trees in the front yard, building two bedrooms upstairs on the left side, a garage and master bedroom ensuite on the right side, building a beautiful new cedar deck on the front, redoing the entire roof, digging for a new septic system in the back, and relandscaping the front, planting grass seed and building new planter boxes in the front, this is it! Phew. Oh and did I mention we had three babies while we were doing all this?  :) God is good, all the time!
