Oh my goodness....I am so excited...we were suppose to get storms today, so I didn't think we would be able to get any work on the house far it has turned into a gorgeous day! I have been out painting...and sweating...LOL. I am getting a nice tan though! LOL As you can see in the above pic...I got paint that completely matches the siding. I started painting over the primer! It doesn't look like a million bucks or anything...but it definitely looks much neater and crisper than it did a few days ago! LOL OH...and notice my door? It used to be white! I painted it a dark forest lake green!
I am still painting everything..that's why you see primer still. It is hot and I do it in shifts so I don't get totally zapped by the sun...know what I mean?

In the pics above and below...are Chris and his brother (who is getting married next weekend!), working on our siding! I am sooo thrilled! I just can't wait till it is all done and it looks like a whole house and not a house with an addition on the back...ya know? Right now I am hearing hammers, saws and such! It is GREAT!!! And...Jaxson is napping through it all!
Look in the sky in the pics....notice how beautiful it is?? No storms!!! YIPPEE!!! :)

So...that's our progress so far today....time for me to go back out and is so NOT a fun job...LOL. But I will be thrilled when it is will look a lot better!!! :) Thanks for following me on my journey of house revamping! LOL

  5. Katy, This is my first visit to your blog. I sure know the feeling of working hard to improve your home, I have been doing it for four and a half years and I'm still not finished!! It is a wonderful feeling when each section is completed though. Oh, what caught my eye on your blog was your son's name, Jaxson. I have a grandson named Jaxon, that's how I got my user name, jaxonsgram. Anyway, wonderful blog, thanks for sharing, and good luck with your home.

  6. Your house is looking awesome!! I wish I were closer and we could be real life friends.

  7. Looks great Katy! I always have a sense of satisfaction when I go to bed tired knowing that a project is coming along. Hope you have a restful Sunday.

  8. Wow, it looks fantastic! I know it's hard work but will it ever pay off!!!

    God Bless,
