Moving back inside....

It rained last weekend so we made a "punch list" of things that needed to get done inside the house.  The goal is to be able to get the house appraised and refinanced by the end of the year or asap.  One thing on the list was moldings.  We have purchased knotty alder molding for the doorways and the baseboard.

Of course it has to be clearcoated but it matches the kitchen cabinets and compliments the hardwood flooring as well.

We got a really good deal on flooring installation which enabled us the luxury of not having to install the wood flooring ourselves... YEAH!!

The floor is absolutely beautiful.

The installer started at the fireplace and layed straight thru the kitchen all the way into the pantry.

Hardwood floors installed... check!

Something old made new...

We have been working on make a garden shed in the back corner of the property.  There was a reallysuperold shed roof and we figured it would be well served to house the gardening impliments (as it were)

We had alot of the utility grade 1x6 left over from building fences on Perry road, so, we made a little lap siding.  Part of the idea was to make the shed look like it's always been here.

We wanted knot holes and crooked boards. 

The roof was a little rotten so Steve cut back the yucky part and we added new plywood.

Still need to finish painting and put a metal roof on.  The door?  Well, we have some old single panel doors. We are going to put 3 of them together and make a sliding barn style door. 

this was the old shed
