Up It Goes

The siding is going up! The bottom part of the back and all of the back porch are done. It will definitely look like a different house when the job is complete.

Bought a new door for the front and for the driveway-side entrance. I have been watching closely and asking questions. And, no, the guys have not killed me yet for bothering them. They know I want to learn how to do things myself. I have decided to try to do the siding on the garage. I think I can do it. May have to ask more questions though and get a new tool or two (I don't have a good pair of snips), but I really want to do it! The other DIY project I want to do is glass block the basement windows. I have been told that the new systems are easy to work with, but we shall see.

Hope the weather holds!

Your home is getting quite the facelift! I hope you took before pictures so you can show off all the work you've done. Can't wait to see the finished stained glass window too!

I hope the weather holds for you. I have been tiling my kitchen, just waiting for a day to get out and cut tile. It's either too nice to cut tile or raining! What's a DIYer to do?

Well I have a long list of 'to-do's', but certainly not as grand as what you've been up to. I agree with before and after photos - would be nice to compare what use to be with what you've done!
