So, we finally got some work done around the new house this week. We are watching the finances (business is not the greatest this year) and this slows us down a bit. A couple of weeks ago we did get our final, so now the push is to get the house livable.

grading 1

Outside we are grading 12” off the top of the yard and we will backfill this with good soil. Our yard is DG, you can not get a shovel in the ground.

That’s a beautiful house. I know it always seems like it’s taking forever to get done. We’ve been paying as we go with ours, too. Starting to see a little light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe we’ll make it in by Thanksgiving. Thanks for the post. Love all the nice detail you’re putting in this house.

I love your house. I am just finding these pictures. My wife would just die for a porch like that.

Are you performing the renovation of your home? It was nice to see why not look here the reconstruction ideas on stairs and all other places. The picture tells all the things very clearly here. Keep share more updates regarding the renovation.
