|I pulled up the subfloor in the original kitchen floor|
We were hoping to be farther along on the inside, but we are waiting for some other people. Namely the electrician and the plumber. We need to add the electric for the appliances that will go in the area we've been calling the "kitchen box". So we did what we could inside then turned out efforts outside to work on the fence until after the holiday. The plumber is scheduled to come by Friday to check our work and help us with some final details. The electrician should be out there soon as well, then it will be time to install the kitchen.

While we were waiting work on the fence began. After all once we move in we will need to be able to contain the dogs. What fun is a big yard if the dogs can't run free in it? We added to the existing fence on the side of the yard. It's your regular ol' picket style fence, but it still looks lovely! Then we pulled up the rusted wire and kudzu fence along the back, to make way for something spiffy! (By the way I did get a nasty case of poison ivy from pulling up the old fence. Who knew you could get it from the roots as well)
|Kudzu and rusted wire can't hold in our dogs|
The fence in the backyard is going to be a little different than your average fence. It's quite possible that you've never seen anything like it. It's going to be a combination of metal and wood, no pickets. So far we have pulled up the old fence, dug all the holes for the posts, and begun to lay it out. We've made our house fairly unique where we can, so we felt no reason to be traditional when it came to building a fence. Why not have a fence that is functional and beautiful? Here's a sneak peek at what we've been doing.
|Hmmm...that's different. Wonder what they are up to now?|
