Moving right along

We still have too much snow to do the outside work but the stone work is finished. We need to thaw out before outside work can be done; finish siding, install rain gutters, build rails for porch and finish two side entrances and build front portico.

The tile work is being finished this week and then the plumbing for the second story. Then we just need the hardwood floor installed. Our biggest need, aside from the hardwood floor installation, is for painting all the trim work. We have several doors and lots of trim to paint and then finish the last coat on some walls and install the hardwood and we are done.

If anyone would like to join us on Saturdays for a trim painting party please email or call: bengaline@comcast.net or 301-528-8505. We hope to get a gathering from our church and another church set up soon and anyone is welcome to join us as we are working every Saturday. The sooner we finish the sooner we can move upstairs and start taking more kids.

We are so grateful for all the wonderful support via prayers, work or donations! Thank you so much!!

The stone on the front being installed Feb 2 2010

We still have to finish the siding (but back is done and some of one side), and build the front portico and finish side two landings for entrances but we are plugging along. All the recent snow we got (and are about to get more) is delaying work outside. We are still finishing tiling and other work inside (the Dutch door to mudroom is up :).
