Curb Appeal

So, we built this nice new addition and it makes the rest of the house looks ugly. All those logs. All that green paint. All that old, deteriorating bat and board. You can only put so many flowers on the front of the house.

Time to rip it all out.


I was right, we do get walls on the second story. That’s good. It’s a long fall when you’re stumbling around in the dark and mis-step.

It’s hard to take good pictures of framing. When you see it first hand, you can tell where walls and doorways are going to be and the house starts to come together in your head. In a picture, though, it just looks like a bunch of sticks. So trust me here, that’s a bathroom doorway and a bedroom doorway and the landing at the top of the stairs. I know it just looks like firewood, but add a little drywall and paint and it’ll be an actual room. Pretty sure we get a roof too.
