Where in the World...

Were Shane and Paul?

Well, Shane climbed up on our roof and he would not come down.
Paul tried and tried, but he said he wasn't coming down until we served red meat!

Just kidding!

Shane came to SC with the intent to help us with a little project.  And by "us", I mean Paul and by "little", I mean ginormous!  Every morning, Shane donned his overalls and got on with the job.  That man is dedicated!  And he has a servants heart, that is for sure.

The first day he pulled all the old rotted wood siding off the sunroom before the rest of us even got out of bed good!  Okay, Paul was out of bed, but he was at work.  The rest of us.......well, we just sort of tried to stay out of his way.  He was definitely on a mission.

Then there were rotted fascia boards and soffits.  The old AC unit had to come down and then all 7 sliding glass doors came out.  Of course they started working on the hottest days of the summer so far!  Paul helped out when he could, but Shane was a machine!

He framed in the holes for dry wall and windows. 

 And like last summer, when we were at the Caudills helping , the boys were invited to join in the fun!
And by "invited" I might mean told.

Hey, it was an opportunity to use sharp objects....And power tools.  What boy in his right mind passes on that one?

The house is now covered in ply board, foam board and house wrap!  I think it's pretty well insulation!

And I am very excited about these doors!  Can I just tell you how very much I hated those sliding glass doors!  I HATED THEM!  I love this.  The windows....the doors.

So, next on the agenda is vinyl siding.

And then the inside will need a lot of love and work.
Maybe we'll have it finished before next summer!

You've heard about the kitchen remodel we did in 2009......and 2010....oh yeah, we aren't really quite finished with it yet. But, then are the projects ever really done?


That's okay.  I'm just thankful it's been started!

Oh my giddy aunt! You lot really can't do anything half way can you? lol Good luck with the remolding! Are you planning some sort of send off for those awful sliding doors? They've been around so long I feel like we need to bury them at sea or something!
