Inside and Out

I realize that posting more pictures per post is not the same thing as posting more often...but it's about all I can offer at this point!  Everything is still moving along here - the exterior is now fully sided and just needs to be painted, the garage has been resided to match the house, and the guys are moving forward on what our contractor refers to as our "fancy stairs," an open staircase that will run from the basement to the second floor.  We've been working on small projects ourselves, including replacing an old basement door and redoing the old fireplace with new brickwork.  With spring weather here, Brian has also been putting the bobcat through its paces, smoothing the lawn and generally cleaning things up a bit.  Electric and plumbing are all well under way inside.  All is all, things are starting to shape up!

Siding on!  Paint to come

Side view
Old door

No door

Cutting back the brick an inch or so to fit the new door

And in!  Just need foam and trim.

Garage underway

Wrapped but no siding yet
We'll probably swap out the garage door but looking much nicer now!
Fireplace with old stone facade removed and starting to build it out again

More progress

Ready for new stone now
Sketching out the stairs but not safe for walking yet

View from the second floor

Starting to come together

Not quite ready for walking just yet but getting there!
