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!

No longer a safety hazard
The crew were on site to add gutters to the house and finish up trimming out the porch. I'm glad we went with the larger columns and wider stairs. The house looks almost complete from the front. They'll add the stair rails tomorrow and then its pretty much done. We'll replace the front door and landscape at some point in the fall probably. If it wasn't so hot out and we had a rocking chair I might just go hang out on the porch!
Kristin will see if she can find a way to fall off the porch when she gets home, but it seems pretty solid to me.
