House Remodel, Day 54

We did more work on the house this evening. Joe went straight over from work, because he had to meet the carpet guy. He measured the rooms so that he could get an exact quote. He said that Lowe's should call us tomorrow with the quote and once we go pay for it it will be about a week. Hopefully they will call us tomorrow.

I met Joe over there after I took the girls to my parents' house. I took a few pictures while we waited for the car to cool down. Can you tell I finally transferred the 947 pictures from my memory card to a disk? (Nope, not an exaggeration.)



Joe built shelves in our storage room a few days ago. Right now we have a bunch of stuff we're using to work on the house in there but once we move in it will be great to store holiday decorations, clothes, etc.


One of my favorite things about the house, now. We put this up today. Click on it to see it closer. It says, " The bond between sisters is sometimes tightly woven, sometimes loosely held but never broken."


I painted the front porch trim and boards on Saturday. We also put up new house numbers, a new porch light, new doorbell, and new door handle. I really like the green color so far, I can't wait till the outside is all done.
