It's an improvement!

The last two days have been a whirlwind of activity around here! 

Here's a picture of where we stand now with the house...

No more tarpaper whippin' in the wind!  The new siding is on the front of the house.  Replacement window in the living room.  New patio door in place of a window in the dining area.  A window installed in the lower level (future) living/family room ~ Bonus!  Rummage sale find, only $25 dollars for a big vinyl window! My contractor was impressed :)

It would have been nice to replace the rest of the windows, but alas, the funds are just not there at the moment.  There is all new vertical siding all the way around the house, and the other three sides were filled in and sided with the pieces we scavenged from the front. 

Next up.  Paint and some dirt work....


  1. Your house looks great! I know you are so proud !

  2. To me, the house already looks cute even without the paint. Though, I am sure it will be better with a coat of new paint.

    I have just finished restoring an old house that I inherited. I have put in a lot of hard work and effort in restoring it, making it a beautiful home. I am really proud of myself for finishing it. But I have to admit that a friend who is also a siding contractor Minneapolis professional was a big help.

    In restoring and renovating old houses here in Minnesota, siding contractors Minneapolis companies are always the most sought after because they provide the necessary materials.
