These pictures are from last week 's and this week's quick trips up to the cottage.............I am glad that end is in sight because the money for the project are almost gone. They will be painting starting tomorrow. I took the flooring up today so it will be going in with the new molding after the painting is completed. The tiling in the bathroom will be started too. Eddie couldn't make the trip and now wants to go up over the weekend to see the progress. My sister Kim and I went to Scrapbooks! in Lima which is closing in another week or two. The first shows the deck and the new siding that we had to put on b/c the old was in bad shape after putting a new back door in and jacking the foundation up almost nine inches to get it level. The next two show the work done to shore up the foundation and put a concrete floor in what was a dirt floor. This area had to be dug out by hand....and in cold rainy weather. The last two show the two ends of the kitchen. We had to put in a new counter top also because of the fixing of the foundation. They are going to be painting the cabinets white too. The cool entertaining cart that Eddie picked out at Pottery Barn will be going between the two outlets in the picture with the ceiling fan.
