House Work!

My husband is on vacation this week, so we are working on our house. The house was built in 1939, and some one remodeled it in the 70's. they slapped up some T-111 over the original siding. My husband and his brother are working together to restore the siding this week.

Here is a before shot of the front of our house.

The guys tearing of the T-111

Looking good ;)

Needs a lot of work.

My sister and I are working on the kids room while the big kids are at VBS.
Here is what the paint looks like now.

The last time we painted was 7 years ago before buster was born. It was fish theme.
Stay tuned for the after shots!

I;m taking a blogwalk with the TOS crew and popping in to say "hi"!! :o) I got a chuckle when you said it was your husbands week off and you were working around the house. That is exactly what we did with most of my hubby's week off. ;o)
