House- Day 7: Exhausted!!

We have Bleeding Hearts!!!
That was the high point of my day.  We put in 11 hours straight today.  Whoosh!!! We're all tired.  Mostly V and I.  The kids took lots of 'breaks' but did manage to get a few things done.
I11 works on painting his room
We did manage to get both coats of paint on his room so tomorrow we can pull the painter's tape and it will be done!  Now we can start using both boys' rooms for stacking boxes.
V says that I "work willingly with my hands".  Wow, I didn't know I was virtuous.

But, the fascia and soffits are done!!!!  Behold:
Yeah, I know, gutters aren't that exciting to most people.
Now, it's very late and we have yet to eat.  (pizza is in the oven)  Tomorrow I go back to work.
Sigh....  I do wish I had more time to work on the house.  I don't think we will have everything done by the time we had hoped to move in.  But we'll see how far we get.


  1. The house looks wonderful, it really does! Congrats :-) When is the planned move-in date?

  2. Judy - You guys are doing great!

  3. Localzone- We had hoped to have enough stuff moved out of our current house that it was presentable to put on the market by May 15 and were hoping for a 'big move' around Memorial Day weekend or early June.

  4. Well I certainly think your gutters look nice. Probably better than mine do right now.

  5. I'm so very impressed with the amount of work you are getting done! It really is amazing.

  6. I have rotting facia and soffits at my house so I totally admire the new ones at yours! You guys have accomplished so much in just a weeks time!!

  7. Judy - wow, I am impressed. You guys are doing great! I actually do think gutters are exciting. :)

  8. You should be exhausted! You all have accomplished so much in such a short time. You're moving right along and it's looking great!! I'm so excited for you.


Glad you stopped in. I would love to hear from you.
