I can’t express how excited I am about our recent developments. We completed the first floor porch railings and balusters last weekend! The posts are not final but will soon be replaced with 6×6 posts. I am so proud of Ryan and thankful for all the help his dad and brother, Jason, have put into this huge project.




Let’s recap for a minute. Less than a year ago the house looked like this…


And now it’s looking more like this…


I think that puts it into perspective, don’t you?

This also means we were ready for the house appraisal today. So let’s cross our fingers and hope we can finally purchase this house (and get more money to continue the work).

    OMG is right – looks amazing-even better than I could have pictured. Hope the appraisal goes well!

    Wow! I’m so proud and happy for you both. The house looks amazing and I miss the family so much. It weirdly means so much to me to see the house restored. Thank you. Sending much love from California.
