On May 4th, we started our home improvement project, in preparation for putting our home of 20 years up for sale. From the humble first step of painting the bathroom, we have progressed through re-roofing, deck repair, exterior painting, a front door portico and winding gravel walkway. As I write this there are only three walls and a patch of ceiling that remain unpainted inside and the portico needs a few square feet of shingles.
We expect to be listed by the end of August, which launches us into the next phase of our move-down-the-hill adventure and the ongoing question, “what have I gotten myself into?”
Here are a few more exterior photos. Click to enlarge.
