Siding! Done!

Regarding the "exterior of house"...we've called it finished for now! (If only you could see how big my smile is!)


In the spring, we'll touch up the paint and finish caulking. Then, it's on to landscaping and a few other to-do items I'll list below.

I enjoy looking back to the beginning when we bought the house, about 4 years ago.


The first thing Cameron did after signing the papers was come by and chop down the two overgrown trees planted right infront of the windows.

That left it looking like this (with the addition of two new windows):


Here, we removed the back half of the house-with a skid loader!




We dug ourselves a basement (had we known how much water we would encounter, we may have skipped this step!):



Then added back on, giving us a master bedroom, dining room, laundry closet and full basement.




After adding windows and patio doors (see them HERE), we left it alone for a while, trying, I think, to recover from what was by far the most frustrating part of this whole house renovation. You can read more about it HERE.

Finally, this summer we went to work on re-siding!


More on that HERE.

Today, it looks like this:


Here's a little side by side comparison for you:
Much, much better!

Still to do:
  • Paint the front door
  • Add house numbers
  • Replace the mailbox
  • Install light fixture over the door
  • Paint the meter on the side of the house
  • Remove and replace the steps infront of the landing
  • Add color with plants, flowers, shrubs etc.

So there you have it!
