Home Sweet Home - it's coming along !

The fencing is done to keep the pups in and to keep other critters out. Now the dogs have lots of room to roam.....

Now that the deck is completed we started to think a little more about safety. Family members aren't always so sure on their feet, so we put down the black coarse treads to secure their going up and down the steps. We did this on both the front and back steps to the house.

The picture below is of the tile that we bought to put in our kitchen for a backsplash. I love the colors and the travertine tiles that are intermittently within the glass tiles looks great.

Here is Jeff below installing the tiles. Luckily I have a glass cutter on hand since we both do stained glass projects and it sure came in handy for those cuts that had to be made here and there.

Below are two pics of the final product. We got it all grouted now and it looks awesome !

See ya down the road !

Starting to get settled in...finally....

Look at this awesome deck and Jeff and Rob built. They did a fabulous job. Every inspector that came by our house could not believe that they did this themselves. I am so proud of both of them.

Not to mention that without our friends, Rob & Jane and their great kids, Robbie and Jordyn,
we could never have gotten moved in or had this beautiful deck done.

They had to leave to go back to Virginia and we miss them terribly, but we will forever be in their debt for helping us out. It is GREAT to have GREAT friends !! We are SO Lucky.......

Below is a picture of the living room and the doorway you see leads to the master bedroom.

This is the kitchen. Kind of a mess in the beginning but we are slowly making progress.

This is the dining room and the doors that lead to the deck out back.

The pic below needs NO explanation......had to have a new TV to go with the new house, right ?

And, last but not least, here are the pups - taking it all in stride - not a care in the world !!

See ya down the road !
