"Where have you been?"

County Road 185
I know, I know.

We ARE making progress! 
Just not enough for anyone to notice.
I am not kidding when I say
that every square inch of this house will have 
had our hands on it by the time it gets done.

If you are ever going to remodel your home 
and have to pay a Contractor, take this advice...


Seriously, if it cost a bit more than you have saved
in your pocketbook, WAIT and save for the expertise of
a qualified person to do the work.

Why do I say that?
Because later on, you will end up paying that better
Contractor (my husband) to FIX what the cheap guy did.

... AND because we are having to re-do every. single. thing.
in this house. 

Thank goodness I married a perfectionist.
He kinda makes me crazy sometimes
but in the end, I have to always agree 
that he was right.
Yeah, he loves that. 

Although I would like for it all to be done 
fast and NOW, I will grow
some patience.
If the Romans did it, so can I. 

Okay, that's my little bit of advice.

I have a goal of having some major improvement
photos ready by the weeks end.
So, off I go, to make that happen!

Amber- What beautiful pictures. You are going to be so happy when it is all done. I can't wait to see it all-Thank goodness you have a handy hubby. I have a perfectionist for construction hubby, too, but he is NOT handy so we have to pay to have it done! xo Diana
