Well, I thought I'd post a few (heh, heh) photos of the house. Ben's been all-consumingly hard at work making a silk purse out of a sow's ear ( only "sowish" because of the out-dated interior)...well, that's a little dramatic. Let's just say that we're ever-so-close to making this old house, new and charming inside. The master and guest room aren't pictured, due to their boring squareness:). The ladder picture is in Lincoln's room. It leads to this secret room that the kids love to play in. It's so fun and mysterious....ooooooo. Ben is quite excited about the shop out back. I think it's a cool place for the kids to ride their bikes in the winter...always practical:). They started installing the carpet today. Hopefully we'll finish the mouldings, hardware, lighting this week and do some touch-up painting. I think all that's left is the clean-up. Not the funnest, but, I'm so full of gratitude that I WILL NOT complain.
