That counter top looks great. You're going to love the look that you've put into the kitchen more and more every day.

Only problem is that i may have done too nice of a job - wife likes kitchen at the lake much more than home. Told her the best solution is to spend more time at the lake & less @ home.

I like that philosophy. Wish I could say the same about our second home.

Back to work this weekend. Progress has not been as good this year but we have been able to enjoy it more. Got some siding up.

Took advantage of some great November weather this weekend & finished up some exterior work this weekend. Just needs paint now but that will have to wait until spring. Also finished up some interior projects.

Will you winterize it, or leave it available?

We drain all the water lines but leave the heat on at 50 degrees. We put in hardwood floors through out & don't want to risk any issues with freezing. We try to take advantage of any decent weekends to get some more work done when possible. It has come a long way since the beginning. December will mark 3 years of ownership.

I guess a nice wide deck across the front is the in the future? If so will you screen it it?
Looks so much nicer now then before.

There are some plans for decks in the future. They have not been finalized but we are thinking a screened in room on the back of the house.

One hint on screening. Avoid fiberglass screening. In our neck of the woods there are grasshoppers that can cut through it like a can opener.

Just realized i have not posted any updates in a long time. Over last winter we completely gutted the downstairs bath to the studs. Came out awesome but like everything else it took longer than expected. Will try to get some pictures of this weekend when we go down to wrap up the hardwood flooring in the last bedroom. Below picture shows the family room in its current state. It is getting closer.



Not to long ago it looked like this.



This is what it looked like the day we looked at it.

From this





Last weekend we finished hardwood in bedroom #4. Biggest room at 10' x 20'. Originally the space on the east end of the upstairs was one big room approximately 20' x 20' that they used as a family room. We divided in half to make 2 good size bedrooms. Will be glad to close the door on my hardwood flooring career. Notice no more patio door & new windows added.

Day 1



Currently looks like this. Have got a lot of the small things wrapped up. Even had a chance to hang up the tv.

Man that looks really nice.
Good finding a diamond in the rough that used to be.
