Cutting Trees

This weekend Taylor focused on cutting branches out of the way so our privacy fence can be installed...and just general tree trimming. So, these pictures show him on top of the garage and using his chainsaw/tree trimming attachment to his weed wacker!

Neighborhood Restaurant

We have a lot of restaurants within a block or so that we can walk to. CarlyRae's is less than a block away and we want to keep it we're going to make it our new go-to place. This is our good friends Jennifer and Chuck with us at CarlyRae's!

It's ours!!! Now let's get dirty!

We closed on Friday...FINALLY! Today, Taylor and Chuck went down into the cellar and into the crawl space to work on the air ducts. It's pretty tight down there.

And really dirty!

A few updates

We're working hard to get this place liveable. Also, we decided to make the front room the living room after all and just have the middle room as the playroom temporarily and down the road make it the dining room.

Here is the front room/living room. We put up new curtains. Thanks to Taylor's parents. They really look great! It's not easy to find 108" length curtains!

Here is the middleroom. Same curtains!

Here is our bedroom...still messy. But notice the new curtains. They're short right now, but hopefully when Judi comes into town, she can sew a panel onto the bottom and they'll look great!

Here is a picture of our air vents before:

Moving Day!

OK. So we're all moved in. Now it's just going to take a little time to put things away and get settled. Then it's on to the fixer-upper projects!

Our bedroom:

Graham's bedroom:
Notice the temporary curtains. Graham's Memaw will be making the fabric into real curtains next time she's back in town. The color is really growing on me!

Front Room:

Middle Room:

We did get a new stove. That was nice.
