We Made It

The portion of the front of the house that dad and mom tackled this summer is finished!
The porch and the wing to the left of the porch, will be next summer's project - new sheathing, windows and clapboards and new shingles on the roof.

We're planning on getting the tree in the front of our house either trimmed or taken down completely.  Dad hasn't decided 100% what he wants to do yet.  
Above the tree branch on the right hand side way up high is the date that our house was built. 

 Our friend, Doug, hand painted it.    We love it and think that he did a fabulous job!
 Another change we made was to change the color of the front doors from essex green to white.  And the shutters will not be returning.  
Mom is loving the clean, simple, pristine Shaker look.
You are probably wondering what the peeps are doing now that the front of the house is done.   
They had so much fun painting the house white that they are painting two sides of one of the barns red~
Windows need to be repaired and repainted too.
 They are wearing us out!
So until next time...............

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly

We like the new look for the house! We have shutters here but dad is still dismayed after nearly 6 years that they are not "real" shutters. He wants the ones you can close tight in a storm. Muzzer has this eyebrow thing she does and tells him to get over it or get down to it. Nothing is happening!

Your Mom has your dad very well trained.

Well, I certainly know how exhausting it is for us pups when our peeps are tackling big projects like this! Are you guys OK? I've gotta say, your house looks FANTASTIC! Mom loves the painted year of the house and also the year carved in stone on that pillar! Very nice touch! And the white paint -- it's Mom's favorite color, so now she's in love with your house!
Don't work too hard, Mitch and Molly!!!
Yours sincerely,

I want a barn for a woman cave. Complete with sewing space and library. And a cozy place to read. Glad you liked the story! I found the video on youtube. You should hear my assistant read it! I'm hoping to video and try to get it up. It is sooo much better.
Glad the house is all done. I love your barn.
Have a great day! XXOO.
Daisy and I are going pinecone picking later with my grandson. I'll try to take pics!
