The latest:

the underpinning will be painted white to match the rest of the foundation..

the back staircase didn't really fit within my setbacks (We didn't know the city required two entry points on the main floor until the house was designed and the plans were approved) - so it had to zig zag away from the back door (there are a couple of corner steps that go between the back door and that platform) and then taper down to the bottom. !

More drywall being delivered....

and I've been ordering more art for the bunkroom from Etsy...
(Omar's Etsy Shop - he is a childrens book illustrator, this is "Captain Cur" !)

Hey what's that? Do you see that little glimmer .... at the end of this tunnel... ? It looks like HOPE! ;)

  3. Quite sure it says something weird about me, when I get excited about see a drywall delivery and it's not even my drywall. Love seeing your progress!
    Think I have my typos all corrected now....:) ....hit it.

  4. Eek! I love it!! Especially the art. :)

  5. Some great photos...and I see the color of your house now. Awesome.

  6. It looks almost done to me - well done. From dream to reality - I can't wait for you to be able to start using it!

  7. I'm getting so excited, and it is not even my house! Now that I've finally sold ours, I've started looking at beach property. Stop me, stop me now.

  8. It's absolutely beautiful and a testament to your dreams and hard work. So happy for you...

About Me

My photo
For many years I was a mechanical engineer by day, a house renovator by night, and a single mom. I previously built a tiny house on Tybee Island that I sold in 2015. Then I lost my day job, met Prince Charming, and now work full time demolishing (fixing) his lake house. ;) Stop by for the house stuff, stay for the never-ending disasters, pianos falling out of the sky, floods, threats of financial ruin, & panic attacks. It's like house flipping meets the zombie apocalypse! with lots of kids!
