Before and After

The work on our front-porch and pergola is progressing and it will be awesome once it is done, but in the meantime, there are some inconveniences of having work done on the house.  The biggest by far is the lack of a front-door.  As the workers were pulling off some stuff around the old door to get the measurements for the new door; the old door became so unstable, they had to take it out and board up the hole.  Do you have any idea how many times a day you just quickly pop outside to do this or that?

Or how ugly a boarded up front door space is?  I was contemplating a front lawn sign that reads "We ARE current with our mortgage payments and our house is NOT being repossessed".  I finally abandoned the idea in favor of spending $12 on various paints and letting our girls and Rowan go wild painting. 

I think the results turned out fabulous, but I would still give up the painting in a heart-beat if that meant our door would be delivered earlier than the currently scheduled date of October 10th!


Ready to paint!

Hard at work
They may have to work on their pose.  And, yes, the adults did get roped into finishing off the top that they couldn't reach.
