May is turning out to be quite an eventful month for us! In one of my earlier posts I wrote about my vision cards for the year and how our house is one of the areas I/we will be focusing on.
There are many reasons why we haven’t done much to the house over the years. In the beginning, nothing needed fixing. Then, as little things started to pop up, my husband, who is a pretty handy man, was busy working, sometimes odd shifts like graveyard or swing shift which would throw his sleeping habits all out of whack and make the timing of doing things inappropriate. (He couldn’t start making repairs when he got home from work at midnight or 3 AM and he would need to be sleeping during the day). Now, when things are really needing attention, his back will not allow him to handle the strenuous activities.
So, we’ve made the decision to have a company come in and replace the roof and gutters and put siding on the house rather than paint. I’ve gone around and taken pictures of what things look like now so we can compare them to the finished product (and so I can have another subject to scrapbook about – let’s be honest)!
This is in our driveway at the moment.
