So this month we have made some headway in our current renovation home. As of yesterday half the house has it's walls primed and ready for paint, and Jack finished refinishing the other rooms so that I can prime them next week.
The siding company came this week and started putting on the ivy siding, and it is making a 100% improvement to the outside of the home over the blue peeling paint.
We figure though, that truly we will not be able to finish till late May, and that is only providing we have no more set backs (like we did with the furnace).
Can't wait to show you it with new siding next month. You will be blown away with the difference.
