New Photos of the New House!

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

After the past few weeks, so many changes have happened over at the Kipling house (the one we will move into in August)! The garage has been built, everything has been framed, the master bedroom is finished, the soffits and fascia are being done, the roof is on, windows and skylight are in, and the new front porch is being finished.

Alex will be taking the next three weeks off to finish up the railing on the stairs to the lake and some landscaping at our house in prior lake. After that the drywall and such will be happening at the Kipling house, we will leave for our trip to Europe (yea!) and when we return all the fun things will be happening, paint, cabinets, etc.

Things have been moving along really smoothly with the houses. If only that were true for our cars. Two weeks ago I was rear ended and a couple of days later the alternator on the jeep went out. Thank the Lord that we have a work van so we could get around and that we did not have to try and figure out how to get a new car. The alternator is replaces, jeep is running well, and the honda will be finished in about a week. The rental car we have though is great...the little hyundai gets great gas mileage!

Enjoy the pics!

Prior Lake House Update

Well we made it...

It was a crazy weekend with mother's day and our first open house, but it went great! We spent Friday and Saturday cleaning out our house, moving the office furniture out, and creating a bedroom in the old office. There was a lot of heavy lifting and moving but it's over now and our house looks so great:) (but I might be a little swayed!)

The house is on the mls and tha picture above is of the new front. New shutters, garage doors, and window boxes really brighten and clean it up! The inside looks a little different as well but those pics are able to be viewed on the mls listing.

Have a great monday!

Life in Fast Forward

Have you ever felt that way? Our lives in the past week have been crazier than ever. Last week Alex was busy working on the houses, I was busy planning out the new kitchen and packing up our house, and over the weekend we were both busy serving at our church for our women's conference.

The conference went amazing...we had 392 women attend and as for what I heard, the speaker Susan Hunt, was sensational! Why didn't I hear it all? Well I was in charge of feeding the 400, or so I called it for the conference. We ordered lunches from Panera, but then with my amazing crew of 13 we fulfilled our duties leaving nary a crumb afterwards! It was a hit, but stressful as well. With my mom, Alex's mom, and Alex all helping it was so fun! But I am glad it was over. Hearing from many they seem to think that catering would be right up my alley, but due to the stress levels, I think I will keep it for special occasions. Though I did love planning the menu, getting everything together, and revealing the final product!

One more announcement...Our first OPEN HOUSE is this weekend. We don't really like to sit around much:) So pray we can get things ready. Though the landscaping is not complete, it's lake season and the best time to have our house open.

Here are the new pics from our new house. This last week the second story addition was framed in and today the roof is going's coming together!
