|I will say I have the best contractor in the world!! My Daddy! I told him I had no idea how smart he really was ;) and now I completely understand why he preferred our house to have 1 roof line.|
Mr. Bloyce found out pretty quickly what a rambunctious son we have. After being threatened not to touch the concrete anymore he jumps on it and runs across the garage floor!
|Kamden is absolutely obsessed with the new house and getting to help the guys work but Kenzie on the other hand prefers to be indoors. She usually begs to stay with Grammy so she can make a craft.|
|I am truly blessed to have my dad as my builder. 100 years from now when my dad is gone what a treasure my house will be! This particular day I spent with him laying the blocks for the entrance at the front door. Dad was quite impressed that I could lift them but I reminded him of the 50 lb and 40 lb weights I lift all day, everyday.|
|Jokingly our electrician told me we were going to need to add another power pole if I didn’t quit buying lights. You should have seen his face when I had him to add a cable line above my bathtub.|
A small setback!!! Daddy sprained his knee while turkey hunting. This meant we had to find someone else to lay the floor and tile. He spent a few weeks on the tractor working in the yard.
You can add plumber to my list of superwoman duties!!! Kam and I put together the water line going from the house to the shop.
|Can you see the mischief in his eyes??|
Ken and I began painting on May 26. With both kids trying to help us it was quite a great experience for Ken. We had been painting probably 2 minutes when we heard banging on the wall!!! Oh boy! we turned around to see Kamden with Grand-Dudes hammer! The sheet rock had been finished less the 24 hours and we now had 4 indentions.
|Kenzie was not too thrilled with the primer color. She said it needed to be a bright color!|
|As summer began I hired the wonderful help of my cousin, Neal. He is a bit like his dad with trying to escape having his picture made.|
|I hope with his 1st paycheck he will invest in some new boots!|
|We let the kids help pick the colors for their room. …and for Mackenzie she NEEDED purple!|
|I had the precious help of Kenzie and Kam painting the trim for the windows…. You can tell by the pictures how well it went :Z|
But I have loved almost every minute of it! And I hope to do it again...one day!!!!
