Well, my back yard renovation project continues. It has been going on for the entire summer now and we have lived through dirt, mud and concrete...but I can FINALLY see things beginning to shape up and THAT makes me SMILE!
With a husband in the construction industry I have learned to not let the little things bother me about a construction job. Things are pretty messy. And they almost never get finished by the expected date. But OH, how I LOVE to see a project come together.
Not only is the outer construction of the pool house up...WE GOT GRASS THIS PAST WEEK!
I know, I'm a little excited over the grass, but that means no more dirt and mud getting tracked into my house (BIG smile here...).
Here are a few photos of the progress...
While I am in Ohio this week visiting Caitlin, Kevin and Holli, I am told the framing will be completed and hopefully ready for sheet rock...and the brick layers! AND...flowers and trees will go in. I cannot WAIT to drive back up and rush out there to see what has been done when I get home!
I can just envision it now...sitting on the porch in the evenings after a swim. Watching football games inside. Sitting by the fire in the fall...Ahhh the anticipation of good things to come.
But in the meantime, Clementine and I are happy to drag one of the old chairs up, grab a good book and sit out by the pool anyway...
