…Building Series – Building a Home

Yes, I could talk more about the kitchen we gutted, slate floors we installed, hardwood floors we finished (sanded, stained & poly’ed ourselves – yes we were nuts), french doors we put in and oh, all the painting, but I think it’s about time to get on to the fun stuff. When we decided it was time to tear down our sweet, first home to build.

The story goes something like this. House. (Oh, DH built those shutters too!)

Bulldozer arrives at house.

Bulldozer starts by easily plucking the large oak from the ground.

Bulldozer climbs the hill and in it goes. Christen & Baby Greta gasp from across the street at the sight.

Is that the innards of the front stoop?

Why, yes, it is.

And that is the family room.

There are the deck railings I was telling you that we couldn’t afford right away. I think we enjoyed them for at least 6 months.

Tear. That’s the champagne yellow color of our basement. But, like a falcon, our dear house will rise again! Stay tuned.
