Getting There

We are so close to getting the porch done we can almost taste it. (It's amazing how long it takes to put up 40 tubes of caulk.) We only have one more coat of paint on half of the columns and a few touch ups to go. Now M can focus on building the new screen doors, once those are up we can finish painting the door trim. Of course we still have to get the exterior doors from Hell done, still too humid today. Will try again this week to track down Jack and get him to come back and get these gutters replaced.

Before:Almost done:

Sent the master organizer in to help A clean his room today. Then ran to get the camera before it resumed it's usual disaster zone status. We just did a quick fix up in this room since, well, he's a teenage boy. His housekeeping skills leave a lot to be desired. By all rights this room needs some more major work, but most likely not until he's off to college. I can't imagine why he didn't want to keep the cute flowers and pink ribbon hearts? This is the room where the previous owners appeared to use rubber cement to attach the wallpaper. Not a fun project.

Your house is so lovely. Even A's room is nice - and that is hard to say about most kids rooms.
