Week 23: Installs

The new fridge... it's pretty cool! (pun intended)


We replaced all the downstairs builder-grade registers with 'fancy' registers.


Our new TV being installed!! Now we're just waiting for cable hookup to actually watch it. A couch would help, too, I guess... The old TV took up too much floor space for this room so we sold it and got one that didn't take up any floor space at all.

Nice 'n' cozy...


Prepped for painting...

You can see the two test colors under the cabinets.

The kitchen came out great!

There are still a few drainage issues at the edges of our yard.





The grass is filling in nicely.

Week 19: Small Stuff

Not much different this week; just a few small details that were taken care of:

The bannister hardware was changed from brass to nickel


The attic access was repainted to match the ceiling; it had been the same color as the trim and stood out too much.


The water heater was installed


The french doors have been cleaned up


And we have grass in the backyard!
