Here we go!

How weird! I already did this entry...and then it disappeared somewhere in cyberspace. So here we go...again!!
This top picture is our door... our OLD door. We are starting a little renovation of the house (finally!) and the door was the first thing we changed.
And this is the NEW door! I love it! We love it! It is awesome. It really brightens up the inside... even with such a small window opening, there is tons of natural light. It's awesome!!
We also are putting in ALL NEW windows and new SIDING!!! The windows are here... in the garage actually. Art was going to put in the new living room window yesterday, but of course that window is DAMAGED and had to be re-ordered. So he made a new plan... he started ripping off the old siding. He also has to take apart the front deck... so we may be getting a new front deck too!! Not planned, but I'll go with it!!
The house looks funny with no siding on the front, just some new insulation. Our house had hardly any insulation in the walls... no wonder we could always feel drafts! When we are done with this, it will be so tight no draft will get through! Mwah ha ha!!
Poor Art is doing all the work himself (he's so handy!) which means long days for him.... and me not seeing him all that much, except to bring him drinks. I can't really help, I'm more of a hindrance because I have no idea how to do anything that he is doing. He did let me use the nail gun yesterday though! That was fun!!
I'll keep posting new pictures as they come.

I love the new door! I'm also making some changes to the house....so that takes a lot of time too. I need to blog about them so you can all see, why I'm so busy.

PS: Did you know you now have two entries of "Here we go"?

Isn't it amazing what a difference even a 'small' thing like a new door can make? Looks great!!!
