We Have a roof!

WALA! A busy week for Brad the Builder. The heat index was over 100 degrees and there was one entire day of rain. Yet, in spite of all that...WE HAVE A ROOF (and probably a really hot and tired contractor)! September will bring the plumber and electrician followed by the really fun stuff...flooring, painting, carpeting! Kitchen cabinet order going in this week and windows should appear within the next two weeks! I've been told, once the inside work begins, I'll see progress slow down. However, the decisions on where to place lighting, what color to stain the flooring and wall paint selection should keep us pretty busy. A trip to IKEA one of these weekends is planned to buy wood countertops. I've never been to one of their stores but I'm told I'm going to want to bring a trailer! Stay tuned!


  1. Susan,
    YOU WILL LOVE IKEA! Wear good walking shoes and take your credit card....went to my first IKEA store in Pittsburg 20 years ago. Now there is one near Detroit and we also have hit the one in Atlanta. Even Bob (the non-shopper) is a little fascinated with the stores. Have fun!

  2. Beautiful! This is so exciting! Really, I can barely stand it.

    Please hurry up, Brad & friends!
