Before & After: Exterior

As I mentioned earlier, we decided to put on an addition. Originally we were going to only do a one-story addition, but decided to make it a two-story addition. We're hoping that the house will look like it was built this way.

We have removed all the siding and old windows. We have installed new windows and a moisture barrier. We'll install the siding when the weather warms.

"We built this city on sheetrock 'n roll"

So we've started sheetrocking the place! This is a huge step and we're starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. After we rewired the house and insulated the exterior walls we decided to sheetrock over the old plaster walls rather than patch all the holes and cracks. My next post will be a before and after look at the house so far. For now, enjoy the sheetrock pics.

I've had tons of great help. One day I came over after lunch and the guys from the church had nearly finished one whole room. We are truly blessed with tremendous servants.

Notice the new floor in the kitchen as well!
