It might not feel like we've accomplished all that much since buying the house last summer. What progress we have been able to make comes during naps and after the kiddo is down for the night. But despite having to work in nap-sized increments, we have been able to get quite a bit done. Take for example the house paint. The siding was rough shape. A few more years and we would not have been able to salvage it.
Before - Rust colored stain needed a fresh coat years ago
After-Paint provides much better protection for the brittle pine siding.
Garage Before - Original combed cedar siding was in terrible shape after years of mistreatment.
Garage After - It looks better, but the siding needs to be replaced. The new paint will buy us some time until we're ready to tackle that project.
Stable Before - Probably hadn't been painted in 20+ years.
Stable After - It took 8 gallons of paint for a 16x30 structure.
Someday I might get around to posting a photo tour of the house. But since we cannot get internet service to the house it might be a while.
