House Update..

January 6th, 2010

Wanted to give you guys the update on my parent’s house.

{for any new readers, my parent’s experienced a terrible house fire back in June.  No one was hurt, thankfully, but the entire house was destroyed.  You can check out the progress of the house here.}

Things are coming along slowly but surely.  They are currently working on replacing the roof section by section… hence all the tarps.

Here’s a close up of the windows in one of the front bedrooms.

Look closely through them and you can see blue sky on the other side!  They must have been working on that section the day my mums took the photos.

And the Garage has also being rebuilt.

I think the best part is that my Mums still hung a xmas wreath on the front door.  That makes me smile.  You can burn their house down, but you can’t take away their spirit!

My parents are doing well and are trucking right along with making final decisions on things like the new interior finishes, the kitchen cabinets, and the sound-system.  I asked my dad if he was going to get one of those big remotes that controlled everything in the house, from the lights, to the speakers, to the toilet flushing. {Just like that remote Ozzy Osbourne used on his horrible reality show Meet the Osbournes. He never could figure out which button did what.  And Yes, I am admitting that I use to watch that show.} But the house still has quite a ways to go.  New electircal, HVAC, plumbing, windows, you get my drift.  I think at this point they are just hoping to get back in the house before the start of summer!

    I’m so happy to hear things are moving along! I think my dad would be UBER jealous if your dad got that remote. (Don’t worry you’re not the only one that watched Ozzy) Glad to see your mom still put out a wreath! I can’t wait to see the finished project!
