Hello. It's me. (As if you weren't sick enough of that song.) Apologies for the silence. 2016 has been equally busy and crazy so far, so I have been putting off writing a new post until I had some concrete completed projects to share. We have set a self-imposed completion date of early April for the Myrtle House (can you believe it?), therefore we have been running around like maniacs trying to get the hundreds of little things checked off of the list before our impending deadline. With the "blizzard of 2016" hitting us this weekend, we are already a week behind. Hopefully we can pull this off!
We have enlisted the troops (specifically, a contractor) to help get us to the end with the bigger projects. The most recent task to be crossed off the list is the exterior porch railings, stairs, and decking. Below are before and after photos showing the changes. It is so nice to finally be able to walk on that side porch! We just need some fresh paint and the exterior will be looking a thousand times better.
