    Home improvement on your Mother's Day?

    Advertisements
    Our project is done - with photos

    Anyone else diving into a long-wanted home Improvement project for mother's day?

    I WANT a deck and a freaking back door! I've wanted it for years...
    Thanks to Bush and his stimulus package we were able to buy all the needed materials to get what I want!

    Of course, I'm not the only one who wants it.
    Hubby's doing it, too.

    It took 8 hours - but we knocked out the outside wall (removed the laundryroom wall, too - for future kitchen expansion) and there you go!

    What we've been looking at for years. Puke! And what the form owners looked at for years. LOL

    The gutted wall and a pic of brick removal progress - we were going to cut the bricks but that was taking too long. Chiseling it by hand was far faster.

    The new door with removed wall and with drywall in place: (The wall had to go because of water damage and the laundryroom will be the new kitchen one of these days.)

    Outside:



    Now for the deck!! A work in progress for I don't know how long - supplies will be delivered today O0
