I met a lot of our neighbors who came by to welcome us to the neighborhood. Dale was working late so he missed a good portion of the kiddos, but the cats were perched in the window watching all the little ones stop by.
In the last year, we've gotten quite a few things done in our house, and although we have many more to go, we've made some big leaps towards making this house home for us:
- remodeled the bathroom (huge job!) total gut job and added new drywall, tile, floor, ceiling, vanity, toilet and shower
- reworked the guest room, replacing the closets, adding crown and base and paint
- redid the front entry, removing paneling from walls and doors, adding crown and baseboard, refinished the doors and painted everything
- worked a lot in the yard - tore out and replanted the north side of the front yard, removed 6 trees, cleaned up the front yard and began replanting the curbside strip. Planted succulents along the south side of the front yard. Cleaned out and trimmed the trees in the backyard along the south wall. Moved in a lot of plants while clearing out a ton of weeds.
- finish the crown molding and baseboard in the studio
- finish the crown molding and baseboard in the hall
- remodel the kitchen
- add a swimming pool
- continue working on both the front and back yards
