Better Views

The neighbors next door cut down a few trees. Now I am sad to see those trees go, but not too sad. They just doubled our view of the lake.  We have started adding some curtains. And continued the door projects this week still. Back to work. See ya next week.

Updates from this weekend

  So, the doors turned out pretty good.  Let me know what you think in the comments section. We got the big ugly medicine cabinets removed from both the bathrooms, popcorn ceiling removed, textured, and painted. And here is the new entryway table and decorations.

Door Project

I have started a new project to fancy up all the doors in the house.  I got the idea for this project guessed Home Depot, you are taking all our money aren't you? Another day, another trip to the hardware store. And another spectacular sunset from our backyard.  

New Target Date - January 2023

Our new target date to have our Chilcottage available to be rented out on AIRBNB is now January 2023.  We have been making slow progress with mainly Chelsea and I doing all the work.  It's been really tough and the kids have been super bored, but we want it to be great, not only us but for everyone to enjoy.  And they say slow and steady wins the race.  Anyways, there have been a ton of updates recently.  We have the two bunkbeds upstairs now for the kids.  Most of the bedrooms are now complete.  We are still working to update the bathrooms and kitchens.  And we got most of the painting done in the closets.  Also I got a chance to use my new WARRIOR 10 Inch 15 AMP Table Saw from Harbor Freight.  I have to say, for only $150, it was way better than I ever expected.  Here are some of the most recent photos. We have the new sofa too.  But all the photos with it looked kinda junky as we still have lots of buildfing material, paint cans, and misc. remodeling stuff cluttering up the shot

July 4th

  July 4th So sorry for not posting for a bit.  Chelsea and I spent about 3 weeks over in Europe for our 10th Anniversary and visiting family over there.   Here are a couple of pics. For more pics from out trip to New York, Ireland, France, and England, visit our facebook pages. So as you can probably guess by the date, we have missed our intended target date of having the lake house ready for rental by the July 4th holiday. That's ok.  We got to spend the time here with friends and family and got to show off all the great progress we have made so far. We had tons of excellent food and shot off fireworks from the dock.  The kids went nuts and had a blast.  And from the top of our 2 story dock you can see all the other individual and town celebrations going off all around the lake.  It was wonderful.  Here are some photos to share.
