I am really excited about how nice the floor looks in the living room. The edges still need to be done, and so does the dining room.
These are the floor stain options.
It is going to be hard to choose because they look very different based on how the light is hitting them. Right now we are leaning towards the one on the right. It seems to have the same tones as the baseboards.
The upper cabinets were torn out of the kitchen.
My DH got the ceiling re-drywalled and can lights installed. The new kitchen cabinets may arrive as soon as Thursday! I am very excited!!!
The cold cellar is painted, walls and floor. Now it looks crisp and clean. We need to build some more shelves for storing canned goods and pantry items.
Here is what the house looks like now after the trees were cut down and the shrubs trimmed. The brush on the left still needs to be removed. Quite a bit different from the picture on the top of the blog!
The side is trimmed neatly too. Now you can see the big stones along the border.
This is the side yard where our lumber jacks cut down the first tree row of four trees, and thinned the next row of pines. It still looks pretty thick, but they really did take down over half a dozen trees out of that row. Now to get the stumps removed and decide what to put there instead.
The progress keeps happening and the projects are moving along. This week we hope to get the floors finished and some painting done. The kitchen cabinets should be installed and the counter top measured. We are planning on getting my office dry walled as well. I would also like to get a few fruit trees planted.
