Some finishing touches but done!!!
Well, the house is finished hurray! It took us three long days but we did it. I waited until everything was done and then I tackled the porch floor. I used an oil base paint on it so it has taken it a little while to dry. I only have one coat on so far but I thought I would show you how it turned out even though I don't the other coat on yet. It looks funny without any decorations on it...but they will be coming soon enough.
As you can see, I have started to put a few things on the porch now that the cement has dryed. I even have a few items inside...lol. Today after all the lessons are done I think I will have the girls help me carry some more stuff from the garage so we can start cleaning it out too. Every since our building collapsed our garage has become a storage bin....just a path to walk through so it will be a relief to begin taking things out. My electric and water lines have been dug underground and as you can see we have started to put dirt around the building but must wait for some much needed rain for it to settle down. I am seriously thinking about painting the big doors on the front of my garden shed....rust. The same as the trim on the house. It would make quite a statment won't it? What do you think?
We are still working on dh building. It is going slow for two reasons. First, we dug in all the underground wire and plumbing and now it is too soft for a semi filled with 20 tons of stone to back into where we need it to be. We have been watering the area to get it too settle and it is better so maybe we are getting close. The second reason is that dh has been working on the last few things that needed done at the rentals...we had four broken window...now how does that happen??? Anyways...just a few recepticals to go and then he can return to working on his building once again. He is just too busy.
We are finishing up a few outside items with a fresh coat of paint...it does look so nice. My Mother painted these for me.
We are off to lessons and then I will visit all of my blog friends until then be blessed.
