Holy Sheetrock!

 Oh my goodness, what a difference a few (hundred!) pieces of sheetrock can make! After a long stretch of doing all those things that you can’t really see — i.e., plumbing, electric, roof, repointing the chimneys, etc., etc., we finally have progress! Little Will’s room has walls…
The old doorway in the downstairs master has been covered and the new one cut…
 The downstairs master bathroom no longer has a view to the pantry! It also has a new bathtub…
As does the upstairs master!
 The kitchen is all ready for floors, paint, cabinets and appliances!
 The chaise lounge reading room/fishing rod storage area — as you can see, we’re still negotiating on this one — has brand new windows, no cabinets and fresh sheet rock!
  The half bath is a foot taller!
 The backyard has been completely cleared out and is getting ready for new wood and a new screened porch — and parking pads.
 The front yard has been cleared of the scruffy bushes and is ready for new plants and some fresh, beautiful sod.
If you want to revisit some of the “before” photos, check out the downstairs and the upstairs original photos.
 We can’t wait until we have final “after” pictures. It’s getting closer! 

In other news, we have to thank our friend Mon — you know her from the so fab Splendid Willow — for sending Will THE BEST birthday gift! Seriously, he’s so impressed with himself and his big number one every time he wears this shirt. She has them on her super chic store Splendid Avenue. If you want to be the cool aunt/mom/friend/sister/brother, this is the gift!
We hope you all have a fantastic day. Thanks so much for visiting us!
