This is from my first sail of the summer.  Nice day, good time.  We’ve been out every weekend, mostly just Larry and I which has been nice.  Planning our vacations.  We’ll take a week in July and another in August.  Looking forward to getting away!


The real Miss Gracie graduated from middle school yesterday!  Hard to believe she is off to High School.  Congratulations Grace!

My favorite framer, Steve Musso, is on site beginning the outdoor shower!  Complete with HOT and cold water!!  Also finishing up our deck, front portico and steps for the garage side door!  Also on a bright note, the interior is now 100% complete and it’s awesome.  I know I’ve been promising photos….after I clean today.  Coming!  Swear!

The driveway has been graded and compressed, next step is retaining wall, more compression and then blacktop, or “Black Velvet” as my dad used to say…he was an engineer and owned and ran rock and blacktop companies. 

Once these are done, it’s topsoil, sprinklers and finally…..GRASS.  That will be so incredibly nice!!  Sun is shining and folks are here working.  Life is good!!

It is very exciting to see the siding go up. I hemmed and hawed over clapboard vs. cedar impressions. In the end, we made the right choice. These are Certainteed 7 inch cedar impression in Flagstone. Love it!

It’s an exciting time as things are really progressing on the house.  I’ve finally got some good photos to share with y’all.  This is the before the Lift pic.  Really, really, really low……  and take note of the very depressed and sad dormers, because they have received a huge dose of happy and look so much better now!!!



The house has been lifted, put down and framed (95%)!!  Here is the bumped out kitchen, new garage and new/replaced extension:


Here is the new & improved family room:


I know!  Right?  Here is the new kitchen – 150% BIGGER!


The view from the living room to the new family room:


SICK!!!!  Here is the new office and the new master bath:



And last, but not least, the SICK, SICK, SICK view from upstairs!!!  Won’t last too long though….neighbors are lifting too.  Still, pretty awesome.
