On to house #2! The new challenge: take a 1953, 2400 sq. ft. ranch house in Arlington, VA and turn it into a two-story, 4800 sq. ft. Craftsman style house. After spending four years from start to finish on the first house, we're hoping to finish this one in 2 to 3 years instead. Back to construction zone living!

Another project finished
We finished the exterior painting today. Both the back and side walls were finished. We kept the chimney unpainted. You can't see it all that much from the street plus it's huge and would have required a lot of effort to paint. But we think it looks good unpainted. Pretty productive weekend for us - windows all replaced, painting finished, and the old hvac ducts were capped off. Plus Kristin mowed the lawn and we stocked up at Home Depot for the next few weeks worth of projects. Up next are running the new hvac ducts and getting some of the electrical roughed in.
