Facelift

We have worked all summer to give our cabin a facelift.  I was soooo tired of those ugly, dark brown shingles! 
Here is the Before and After:




To start the process last spring, we hired a contractor to tear off the old back porch. 
Remember this?



Yep - It's Gone!

 Next we had him build a new, bigger, better back porch.  YAY!  Also a deck and a nice landing and steps to our front porch.





When those were finished (on the outside, anyway), we began siding the house with board and batten siding cut from our own trees:



This is how we spent our Labor Day Weekend this year--


Stuffing insulation around the windows.

She's starting to look pretty good!!

We have worked very hard all summer on this and it is EXCITING to see it starting to look so pretty!  There is still more to do before the house is completely sided, but we are getting there.   I'll try to update again before too long!
