House Update #26: Pictures

So, I haven’t written a post in months, and it’s basically because we have been working on The House in every spare minute. There has been lots of progress in the last few months and we are close to getting our temporary occupancy permit. This means we have the basic utilities finished and we are allowed to live in the house while we finish up non-essentials like trim and kitchen cabinets. Anyway, it’s been a long few months and we’re coming up on the 2 year mark of the House Building Project. We’re REALLY ready for it to be done. Thanks to help from family and friends, we’re slowly getting there. There’s just too much to do a bullet list of things completed, so here are some pictures of the progress we’ve made.

Tile in the entry. We’re really with how it turned out, especially since we’d never done tile before.

Finished floors. Big Man did an amazing job!
Our bluestain pine staircase. This was probably one of the most difficult parts of the whole house
It will look better once the cabinets are in, but our stove is installed and functional
