Remodeling Project Making Final Progress...

This has been one looooooong remodeling project. But we are finally approaching the finish line. Of course my husband pulled off the roof and walls a couple years ago and has been rebuilding the bedroom ever since. But now he is finishing up the siding outside.

He had focused so much time inside that he forgot to finish the siding outside...or maybe he just didn't have the time. So now he's working on finishing it up too.

Here are a few pictures from the project. The ceiling upstairs in this bedroom was so low - only about 7' (Luke is 6'5") and he was hitting his knuckles on the ceiling.

So Lars started to rip it out but he wanted to see what was up there first.
Then he completely tore off the top.

But he didn't stop there. He had to tear off the wall and part of the roof...in November.

And he had to work late into the night to get the wall and roof rebuilt....because, like I said, it was November.

And Luke helped too.
Then there was insulation to put in

And walls to rebuild.

And French doors, and a balcony...

Oh, but before he built the balcony, he had to rebuild the floors

And patch a few holes.
But now that the room is nearly done, he needed to refinish the siding outside, which meant putting up scaffolding.

You can see it here at the side of the house (it's the yellow looking ladder-like apparatus).

Then Lars climbed up on it, and out on the roof.

And then he was just hanging around on the roof for a few days. And then it was finally finished out there and the boys had to take all the scaffolding down.




Now there are only a few finishing touches to complete and then the clean up...maybe this weekend.

I'm exhausted just looking at the pics! But I'm happy to hear this long project is finally nearing completion, and can't wait to see the final results! You have some mighty handy, dandy "boys" in your life, Kim. :)

David: Me too. This has been the longest project Lars has ever undertaken. But I guess when you rip off the walls and the roof...

And I'm going to start calling them that. My "handy-dandy...s"

;) Only I'm not sure how much they'll like that ;D
