Fixer Upper- Weeks 18, 19 & 20
It’s crunch time at the fixer upper before snow flies so we have been busy, busy, busy! Thank you for being so patient with my posts.
After we finished with installing the windows and doors, we had siding to start. This process has been pretty lengthy and we’re still not 100% done. But it certainly makes a difference!
Here are some shots of the siding going on.
First Side Going On
Top of the Front
As the designer, I also had an idea to put some faux stonework on the bottom of the fixer upper, just to dress up that portion a little bit. It’ll eventually wrap all the way around the front, to the garage.
Close Up of Stone
And speaking of the garage, the house has one now! We hired the footings and floor to be poured from a local concrete company and it was so nice to stand and watch someone else work for awhile!

After Floor Poured
I really enjoyed seeing how the concrete was smoothed out. That was cool.
Then the Mr. and my dad began framing. We ran into a little trouble with the roofline and some miscommunication between the designer and the workers. 🙂 So we had to make some adjustments which delayed the process.

Figuring Out the Roofline
In Its Final Spot
It was so light and bright in there, I thought maybe we should add some skylights. That did not go over so well with the workers. 😉
With Sheeting and a Backdoor
The housewrap went on after the sheeting went up and it was sided so fast that I didn’t even get a picture of it! And then when it was time to roof, help appeared and we couldn’t be more thankful for the friends and neighbors who have helped out- without even being asked!
In case you forgot what the before picture looked like, here’s a reminder-

After Thru This Week
I’m sure you noticed the front door. But the saga that was working on that is another post in itself!
That’s all for now!
