I had planned to post our progress every day but being dog tired took on a whole new meaning for me by the 4th day. I just couldn't do it so now I'll have to re-create each day. In my last renovation post on May 1st, we'd pretty much finished the driveway. May 2nd started with driveway finishing touches like cleaning and sealing it. As soon as he was finished sealing it, Dave started on the house and he wasn't at it long before my brother Steve showed up to lend a hand.
Here, we've finally removed all the limestone brick and old siding from the front of the house.
Next they cut the plastic wrap to install the windows. And here you can see that more help has arrived in the form of Beth's friend, Adam. Beth was also an enormous help because she picked up door hardware at Home Depot in Valparaiso before she arrived to help figure out dinner for the crew.
Amber and Chris really didn't have time to relax. It was soon time to put their 4 little ones to bed and, believe it or not, they slept great despite a lot of pounding and other construction noise.
We got to bed late again and were poised for an early start on Day 5.
