We are about to turn the corner towards the down hill slide here at the Funny Farm.  

Yellow paint went up in a few rooms.

The shower seat went in.  Its perfect in every way.

Lily's room got primed and trim got painted.

The beams for the front porch are sitting their ready to go in.

The board and batten siding is going up.  

Max's bedroom and our front door with no hallway paint.  

The gas tank got moved out of the backyard.

::third week in July::

So much is happening right now on this renovation.

The master vanity was delivered.  

Roses rally likes all our new grout.  Isn't she so cute?

That master shower is the coolest.  

All the interior doors arrived.  

The boys double faucet sink is the most amazing thing.  

The double oven cabinet kinda freaked me out because it isn't for a double oven.  Turns out you just cut out the bottom part to fit the second oven.  I was much relieved.  

The curb appeal keeps improving.  

The siding is here!

Of course I had to make Josh hold it up on the house.  

The trim around the windows is getting finished up.  

Look at all those cabinets.  It's blowing my mind.  

The sink is in and is giving me big smiles.  

Latter in the week they hung the interior doors.  

Brand new not jacked up not brass hinges - not anything like my old house.  

The boys bathroom was going to have an original beam in it that got covered on accident.  Because that bathroom is so tight on space then ended up needing to expose the beam again.  Awesome.  

"Schaefer INDY"  written on the side of the door

I couldn't take it.  I made Josh put up more of the siding for me to see.  I can't wait to see it up.  

The temporary braces on the side porch are starting to come off.  

The door trim is getting finished.  

Part of the beam int he boys bath had to get chipped out.  It sucks to cut that stunning beam but it had to happen.  

Turns out that master bath cabinet was damaged and has to go back.  
-sad face-

Look at that pretty little house.  
They just put the trim on the pony wall by the master toilet.

Love this plan with notes laying around.

The secret passage between Lily and Q room got framed in.  

We cut a piece of plywood to mock up the island counter top.  
It is going to seat 6 and be painted green.  

I can't wait to see what happens next week.

::second week in july::

This house is really moving along!  Here is the view out of the mudroom door. 

Quinny is very excited about his secret passage between his room and Lily's room. 

All the drywall is getting finished up on the walls.

I picked a color for the front hall.  Gulp!  Hope it works.

Look how pretty the old floor boards are.  I wish we could save them but they are so damaged that they are getting covered with plywood and new flooring installed. 

New master shower is going in. 

Around mid week the drywall got finished in the kitchen. 

The shower got finished being tiled.  I can't wait to see the grout in.  

The chicken continues to try to get in the house and she is really angry that the doors are on the house.  

Here is the new puppy!  Her name is Rose Marianne Schaefer.   Yes - she is a Saint Bernard.  Yes - we make bad choices.  Yes - she is so great.  More to come on this baby soon.  

Cabinets got delivered and we had to open one up to take a look.  

All the plywood floors got laid down to try to help even out some of the waves from the log floor joists.  The floors will never be wave free, but they will be close enough for a 100+ year old house and owner who think the house is cute.  

The secret passage between the two closets from the view of Lily's room.  

So much has happened this week, but next week is going to be even more amazing.
