Old House, New Tricks!
Well, where have we been? Didn't I say I was going to try harder to update the blog more frequently?? hmm....well, allow me to explain...
This past weekend, Paul & I started our HUGE home renovation project! Now, some of you may be saying "But Paul & Kendra don't know how to remodel a home...", well you're right...we don't....BUT our family does! We're so fortunate to have the help of many skilled handymen (and women), cleaner-uppers, and cooks who helped make our weekend go more smoothly!
We aren't done yet, but we got a good start. We now have 4 of the 8 new windows installed, 1 of the 3 new doors, and about 1/4 of the house sided. We'll continue on with the efforts this next weekend and if there's still more to finish, we'll continue the following weekend. After that, we'll get new gutters put on our house too! Our goal is to have the outside of our house completed before Halloween so we can hand out candy together on our first Halloween in our newly remodeled home!
If you haven't heard - this weekend it also began to snow in MN! This morning we woke up to even more snow that continued ALL day, so we may be wearing our snow boots next weekend as we work on the house! Such timing, we have!
We hope everyone is enjoying Fall (without snow!)....We'll post some "AFTER" pics of the house when it's ready!
