The digs

It has been a while

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.
