Hardwood floors have been installed - they look great!
The railing on the back porch is finished.
The "famous" corner...look to the right - the stairs off the porch are finished.
The retaining wall rail is complete.
Next week - interior doors and trim.
As you know, we were supposed to move out of our Powell Place house on Saturday. Unfortunately, our future renter had another idea - she was just not going to move in - period. Everything happens for a reason so...hopefully someone will want this wonderful house to make their own home!

I have been so indecisive about paint colors. There are so MANY to choose from. I have started and stopped several times...I just get overwhelmed! Aunt Paula came to the rescue! She has great taste - she helped me pick all the colors! I am not even going to look through the choices again.
WHAT A WEEK! It was only a 4-day week (Labor Day was Monday) but, it feels as though it was two weeks in one!
We interrupt this week with some other "stuff"...
Jessica and Justin Dunn - our bestest friends - welcomed Tripp Michael into the world on Wednesday. On Thursday, Adam and I made the journey to August to meet the little guy. He is absolutely precious.
Last weekend was a LUCKY weekend! We sold the Jeep and rented our house!
We have to be out by the middle of September. We plan to move everything in Adam's parent's basement and we will be moving in with my parents. I really am looking forward to being with my parents for about a month!
Let the packing begin...I am fortunate that Harriet (Adam's Mom) and Pat (my Momma) were able to help me begin packing. We got the two hardest rooms done this weekend - the kitchen and dining room. I had no idea the amount of stuff one can collect! Adam and I made a deal that we are going to start throwing more stuff away and not feel obligated to keep everything!
First box...of many!
The renter needed a fenced in backyard to put her dogs...so Adam, Doyle (Adam's Dad), and Bing (my Daddy) did all the labor and she purchased all the materials. It was hard work but, the fence looks wonderful!
The post were in on Saturday...
And the fence was completed on Sunday...
The three of them were extremely tired! Thank you!
