2016 house makeover

Friday, December 22, 2017

After our new siding last year, Boy decided that the next major project at the house was to replace the roof. He gathered his friends to help (one of them has worked as a roofer before) and his dad supervised the bigger project. Unfortunately, they planned it to be over summer’s heat wave last year. I just never got around to posting! The outside of the house is almost complete in its makeover (sans landscaping) – if only my doors and utility boxes were painted and we got a new garage door! Some day…

To fully enjoy these photos, refer back to this old ugly house for what it use to look like;)

The siding for the house was done by a friend of the family (he works in construction so we hired his company through the grant we got that let us redo several windows, the HVAC system, air conditioner, water heater, and siding). My FIL and UIL (uncle-in-law) did most of the rest of it, though Boy helped when he could certainly.

There were areas in the sub-roof that needed repair, so it was good we did it before there became problems.

UIL got a nail through his foot mid-roofing job, so I posted this sign in the window. Everyone loved the wise crack!

I already miss the lovely sunny days, even if fall means way, way too many leaves.

We were going to paint the little shed but then FIL said we had enough to side it! He and his brother also repaired the doors. Though it is not shown in this photo, we put some really cool handles on it and it locks securely now.

The old ugly house is becoming home sweet home! 😀
