The Before and After

The project that started out as the roof project that led to the rafter project and the end wall project, etc, etc, is complete! 

This is the start~





And this is the finish~

We started this project on June 23rd and we can finally say that we're all done!  It's been a long haul but it's sure nice to know that no more rain will be leaking in around our chimney ever again!

This is inside looking out. 
It's a room that basically just for storage and it's also where mom grooms us.  We have quite the view now!

So until next time...........

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Master always says, "you never know what you are going to find once you start peeling away the layers."

Glad to see that our estate isn't the only place that projects move at a glacial pace.

Slobbers,

Wow! Your pawrents are soooooo talented! My mom knows all about small projects that turn into very large ones!

BTW, I have already performed a couple of secret rituals on my pink panther! I GOTTA show him who's boss!

That brings lots of rays of sunshine inside and makes your groomin' roomin' much more cheerful looking.

Is that a hound in the rocker?!

And geeze... I think someone is trying to tell me something. You're the second person in the last hour to mention a new roof. Yes... we need one, but I think the Knight is planning on next spring...

Having a separate room for grooming is very important. And making sure the roof doesn't leak is good, too. Looks great!

Looks very nice and we are glad that you have no more leaks. But we are very upset that your family built you a dog grooming torture room even if it does have a nice view. We hope you don't have to spend too much time there.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Funny how one protect can blossom into such a multi-faceted one. We are so glad that all of our outside work is finally done. Soon time to start on a plan for inside.

It must be a great feeling to have accomplished so much and so well.

An area just for grooming??? RUN KIDS!!! Your mom will be after you two day and night for fur trims, combouts and mani/pedi's....

We suggest you get a contract written out for ice cream daily if there is to be more grooming...

Kisses,

Miss Lacie!

As an admirer of older homes, I love seeing these projects - mainly because I can't do them myself and am hoping to learn from the pros. :)
