The House

So, there's been a lot going on with our house lately. Our brick guys came back and did our fireplace. These guys don't understand English very well and obviously didn't understand what I was telling them to do. But when they did understand that I wanted them to fix something, they were just too lazy to do it and wouldn't. Quality! Oh well, it's done and it looks fine.

Our walls are all taped and textured. It looks kind of funny right now seeing the white texture and the grey of the sheetrock. But once it gets painted it should look better.

Brett has put in the exterior doors in the garage and has the garage doors on a trailer behind his pickup, waiting to go up.

Wednesday, our front steps and steps in the garage were poured. It'll be so nice to be able to walk up and down steps to get into and out of the house instead of climbing up and jumping down. Yay!!

And just today, our underground gas tank was put in the hole. I'm really excited about that! It'll be nice to have that hidden away.

Brett, his parents, and Nathan have been working on getting the siding up and is looking GREAT!
So, we've had a lot of things happening on our house and I just wanted to post an update on what's been going on. Here are some recent pictures...

We've been looking at carpet options. Looks like Aubree has picked out her favorite. She even decides to take a snooze on it!

Since the house is, for the most part, enclosed, I decided to have our first dinner in our new house. We all thought it was pretty neat!

It looks so good! (I do wish you would slow down though!)
