I have a dishwasher!!!!

New kitchen almost everything. I'm most excited about the dishwasher through. The old cabinets were slowly sagging toward the floor and the door literally falling off in my hands when I'd use them.

Lock Photos for My Locksmith

Now that the contractor parade is slowing down, I'm changing all the locks. These are the photos my locksmith needs. And yes, that is a photo of 1 of my keys and yes I do know a photo is sufficient to copy it. If you want in my house that badly between now and when the locksmith arrives, let me know & I'll leave the door open for you.

Slow Progress

Surprisingly my contractor has been extremely busy over the winter (possibly not surprising as he specializes in kitchen and bath remodels) and since I have been sick not a lot of progress has occurred until recently when I got back to the top of his schedule. This is mostly my fault because I was going to use a less experienced contractor to do the siding. I started tearing-off the siding on the front and sides as they were the most easily accessible, but when I got to the back, it was obvious that an experienced hand was needed to make sure we took care of the structural defects (such as the entire back roof section was attached by one nail, inertia and some asphalt shingles.) Progress has started up again over the last few weeks and it's exciting.

Putting the House Down

This morning, they put my house down! (One of the videos actually shows it being raised, as they did quite a bit of back and forth to get things just right.) They also filled in the rest of the foundation (where they took out the steel) and replaced the beams that hold up the carport. It looks like a real house again!
