I know I let this blog fall by the wayside. It’s not because I haven’t been working on the house, but some changes in my life since the last update in June made it too painful to come on here and talk about it. I am stronger for it, however, and this little casa makes me happier than ever.
Anyway, things that I have done in the past 6 or 7 months:
-installed a forced hot air heating system (propane) (aka $$$$$)
-got new exterior doors
-put in a wraparound driveway
-insulated the attic
-new back steps
Here I am all driving the tractor and grading the driveway and stuff:
Here are the doors:
(yes, house needs a paint job in the spring)
(for comparison, these are what the doors looked like before…)
You can see the old front door in this one, just awful!
I have completely lost track of expenses, but between the heating system and doors and other stuff, I’d say we’re well up to $16,000 or $17,000 at this point! NBD… I have to go cry now.
