Not yet

I've been holding off on a pic of the house, hoping to have a FINISHED one to share ... but no, after four weeks we're still not done.

They're still cutting in the zillion edges where the white and red meet, and recoating the white trim so it doesn't look pink, and then there are the porch and deck floors to stain, and roof shingles to repair, and garage doors to replace, and lattice to install under the porches, and landscaping, and ... sigh.

It's adorable!!! Just take it one thing at a time but it looks so good now. Hey, the new garage door should really be nice; what kind are you going to get?

Gorgeous! I am sorry it is taking so long and is so futzy, but won't it be worth it in the end? Spectacular colour!
