THE WORK CONTINUES

I THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE YOU AN UPDATE ON THE "YUCKY HOUSE" PROJECT. THE WAY THINGS ARE LOOKING, WE ARE GETTING TO THE POINT THAT WE MAY JUST NEED TO FIND ANOTHER NAME FOR THE HOUSE.
WE HAVE HAD THE WINDOWS INSTALLED AND IT IS ANOTHER STEP THAT MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE TO HOW EVERYTHING LOOKS. I HAD TO POST SOME PICTURES OF THESE PRETTY CRAFTSMAN STYLE WINDOWS THAT KEEP THE LOOK WE WANT.
THE BRICK RED EXTERIOR COLOR IS KEEPING WITH THE 1900'S CRAFTSMAN STYLE.
AREN'T THOSE TWO LITTLE GABLE WINDOWS CUTE. THEY CRANK OUT TO LET IN A BREESE. THEY WILL COME IN HANDY WHEN WE HAVE TO AIR OUT THE GAME ROOM AFTER A STINKY LITTLE BOY SLEEP OVER!
THIS IS THE KITCHEN WINDOW FROM OUTSIDE. ISN'T THAT JUST GORGEOUS! IT WILL LET IN SO MUCH LIGHT OVER MY KITCHEN SINK! AND YES, LOWE'S SHOULD PAY US AN ADVERTISING FEE UNTIL THE SIDING GOES UP.

AS YOU CAN SEE, MARK CONTINUES TO WORK HARD TO MAKE THE "YUCKY HOUSE" A HOME. SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE...WE HOPE. THINGS ARE MOVING ALONG, JUST A LITTLE SLOWER THAN WE INITIALLY THOUGHT. MARK IS SO THOUROUGH AND REFUSES TO CUT CORNERS. THAT KIND OF QUALITY TAKES TIME AND MONEY AND WOULDN'T YOU KNOW, WE HAVE MORE OF THE FORMER THAN THE LATER SO WE WILL JUST CONTINUE ON. KEEP US IN YOUR PRAYERS AS WE ENJOY AND ENDURE THIS PROCESS. IT IS A LOT OF FUN BUT ALSO A LOT OF STRESS. I KEEP TELLING MYSELF THAT ALL OF THE WORK, WORRY, AND STRESS WILL SEEM MINISCULE WHEN WE ARE MOVED IN AND THE BOYS ENJOY THE SPACE THEY WILL HAVE WITH THEIR FRIENDS. I WANT THIS HOUSE TO BE A PLACE WHERE THE BOYS FRIENDS COME AND KNOW THEY WILL ALWAYS BE WELCOME, LOVED AND ENCOURAGED TO HAVE FUN. I CAN HEAR THE AIR HOCKEY GAMES BEING PLAYED UPSTAIRS RIGHT NOW!
