Here are two views, one looking into the new addition from the living room. The other is looking through the kitchen into the living from the new space. Since the exterior doors are installed the space is completely opened between the old and new.

Here are the new windows in the upstairs bathroom, and the new exterior doors. We seem to be on our way! The projected substantial completion is september 30. I Think we won't be in until mid-October, but we'll see? Maybe in time for Erica's birthday?!?

Talk about dragging out a task! The roof is 99% complete! They still have to cap the ridges, but at least the whole roof is covered! The best news is that our windows will be delivered monday! I'll believe it when I see it. We might actually get completely enclosed by the end of this coming week!

Well as of yesterday they have about 50% of the shingles on. Doing the math, I think that translates to about 10 shingles per day?!? seems like it's been taking them forever on the roof! They've been going at it for over a week and it really only should have taken a day!!!!! I can't kill anyone because I'm supposed to be the good cop! Erica is the bad cop! Boy, will they be in for it if I let her loose!

Sunday August 6.
Welcome to our blog!
This is Abi:
And this is a blog about the addition and renovations we're doing to our house. I'm told that progress is being made on the house. And I suppose that's true--we now have a roof and walls. It just feels like things are moving the speed of molasses in January.
The hydrangeas, a big pile of dirt, and our additon peeking around the corner.
The addition in the back of the house:
The front and other side. They've ripped off the concrete siding to expose the old wood siding beneath, which we will then re-cover up with Hardie Plank.
The side of the house opposite the driveway.
