In the beginning... the inside

Not sure the best way to share these, since there are a lot of them.  Here are a few random pictures, and after we finish completely, I'll share each rooms before- during- after progress.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

In the beginning... the woods

The woods, as you can see, need some work also.  For the most part, it is gorgeous back in there, but there are a few spots that are trashed.  We are hoping the contractor gets a dumpster and puts up there, so we can use it.  If he doesn't, then we will have to look into renting one in the spring to get all of this cleaned up.
 
 






 
Certainly not pretty, but it is what it is!

In the beginning... the yard

Just a few of the outside view - before we got started on it.  You can see that the yard needs a lot of love, so we are glad that the contractor will be working on the inside, so we can focus on the yard.

At least the roof is new!

It took a while...

Four months to be exact... from the first time we looked at the house until the day we closed!  But, it's ours!  Contractor says that remodel should take 4-6 weeks, so we are hoping to be able to move in mid-October!

We are excited to finally call it ours and cannot wait to get started on making it a home for us!

A few more of the newbies


We think we have all of them named - but need to make sure the names fit!

I think this is Stunk - can't tell if the stripe is down the back or not in this picture. 

This is Henrietta - Samantha named her from the movie The Good Dinosaur.

Because they are like a drug...

So, this happened...


It wasn't completely me - although I did make the drive to get them!  Roger wanted Silkies and these mixed guys were free - so we added 6 more to our mix!

 
They are hard to see, but there are two yellows and four partridge babies in there.

Their first night out

 
Tonight was their first night staying out overnight.  They put themselves to bed all on their own!  Hopefully it will be this easy all the time!
