Restoring The Homefront

While G, B and I are enjoying the fall in Florida, the renovation of our house is in full swing. All the doors and windows are being replaced (except for the ones that are new already).
 
My BFF next door is keeping tabs on the work.  I guess it has been cold and windy and she

actually had to chuckle seeing the men try and haul dozens of windows down the side of the house towards the lake, battling the wind.  They had to cut out about eight inches around each window to get the old ones out.




There's nothing like a port a potty in the driveway to make a girl giddy.


 
We are worried about the disruption of our gardens but we neglected to do anything about that before we headed south so hopefully the damage will be minimal.

The master bedroom is being leveled too.  We have a built in bed, night stands, vanity and dresser that is getting dated and I wanted to change it up.  Unfortunately, we re-carpeted the house two years ago and decided to redo the master afterwards so we ordered new carpet to replace the carpet that was installed around built ins.  That was 18 months ago and we happily just called the installer that we were now ready to install the eggplant carpeting we ordered.  I know they think we were nuts ordering so early but with a strange color that was, in itself difficult to find, I didn't want to take the chance that the color would be discontinued.  I'm a one color carpeting gal.
