Before and After

Hubby is almost finished with the farmhouse he has been working on.  I thought I would show you all a few before and after pictures.  Here is a picture of the stairway before.

Okay, so this area still looks really cluttered but I am hoping you can see the floors enough to tell how nice they look.

Of course, being an old farmhouse, none of the bedrooms had closets.  He built closets in all three bedrooms.

Last is the bathroom.  I could not find my before picture of it but this is the after.

 

The house is so DRAMTICALLY changed.  It really looks like a new house inside, which I guess in a way it is.  Everything was torn out except the outside walls.  He did a great job. It was such a blessing to get this house remodel.  Thank you, Lord! (Oh, by the way Lord, another one like this sure would be great!).

I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving.  We went down to Dave and Jessica’s.  It was a good day, full of good food and lots of grandbaby time.  God sure is good to me.

We are warm here-low 50’s- with lots of sunshine.  A beautiful day.  Another blessing from the Lord.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

 

 

 

 

Update on Job Site

Hello everyone!  I know it has been several days since I made a post.  First off, my blog was down for a few days. Thanks to David, I am now back up and running.  Second, we have been pretty busy here.  I thought I would share a few pictures of how the progress is coming on Hubby’s job.

We tore up the flooring in the livingroom.  It was in pretty bad shape.

The floor joists were sitting down on the ground.  Of course, there is only one way to fix that.

This was our progress as of Monday evening.  Tuesday the girls and I had to go to C-burg so I didn’t get to help (too bad, right!)  Hubby did finish moving the dirt out of this section.  Next we will tear up the other side of the floor and do the same thing again.  It is hard work but exciting.  The house is really starting to take shape.  Today, I helped him hang sheetrock on another job.  Thank the Good Lord, work seems to be picking up some for us.  We are SO thankful!

The girls working on school work.  Homeschool is so much fun.  We can take it with us wherever we go.

I thought I would show you all what damage termites can do.

We will be replacing these pieces of wood with blocks.  Tuesday when we went to C-burg we stopped by the Horn’s for a visit.  They had a great surprise.

Baby Ducks!!!  Their mama duck had just hatched 16 baby ducks.  It was very exciting.  We had a nice visit and Vicki helped me (actually she did all the work) list some school books on Ebay to sell.  Thanks again, Vicki.

Today has been wet and chilly here in Floyd.  When we came home from hanging the sheetrock, I built a fire to take the chill out of the house.  Wet weather seems to make the house feel colder.  Well, I think that about catching up all we have been doing.  I hope you all have a good evening and God bless.
