Eitherway, it is going to look GREAT!
Here's a picture from this past weekend at the Biltmore Estate. Pretty cool place.
So this weekend we took "off" from the house. Too bad the house didn't take the weekend off too. We had a sewer backup in the front of the house on the curb that was spilling "grey" stuff onto the street. Ew. The flies liked it, but our noses did not.
One good thing is that it didn't backup into our basement until Monday morning and that was all shower water that didn't smell. We called the city, but of course, it had corrected itself by then. (But blowing more grey chunks on the street. Double Ew.)
Anyway, the guy came out, cleaned it up and we have to wait for the basement to dry out. Bad thing is, the cleaner he used is the same as is used in port-a-potties, so now the front of our house smells like the bathroom area at the end of an outdoor music festival. Sweet icky 'cherry'.
On a lighter note, and because I didn't take any photos of the "grey" chunks. Adam and I went crazy at the farmers market and gave the front of the house some curb appeal. It's very nice!
While I'd rather be at the REAL BEACH looking at real palm tree, I have actually spent the last couple of days looking at green 'hearts of palm' paint.
The paint is Sherwin Williams (Trim and ceiling are a white called "snowbound")
In addition, the porch that won't die is almost dead!
We demo'd the side wall. Looks great.
Now we are almost ready to start with construction! It is starting to feel like this back porch is never going to be done!
Like our support stud wall? Looks scary, but it is holding the roof up.
The pile of garbage and rotten wood just keeps growing and growing.... time to go to the dump!
So we constructed the stud wall last night so that we can demo the rotten lintel, and I think I got a concussion when 2 2 x 4 x 8' pieces of wood fell on my head.
Anyway, here are the results.
Now we can knock out all that other stuff. I can't wait to demo more of the porch!
Also, here are some updated photos of the bathroom. I installed the frosted film on the window for privacy. Looks pretty dang good if I must say so myself!
