New windows and the siding is done!

It has been a long time since I posted to the blog but we have been waiting for the green/blue windows to be switched out and the siding to be finished.  If you have been following our progress you will recall that we decided to paint our siding, rather than replace it – at least for now.  But….because we had altered the exterior during the renovations, we were missing portions of siding all together.  So, while the existing siding got a coat of paint (which I have shared previously) we put the rest on hold.

Recently, with the help of his husband in-law (thanks Derek!), Gordie replaced the missing siding.  Around the same time, we also had a glass guy replace the ugly front windows with regular glass and finally, save for the gutters (which we hope to do before winter sets in), the house looks ‘normal’.  The following are some before and after pictures.  What do you think!?

As an aside, our new couch should be here in the next few weeks so I hope to be able to give you some before and after pictures of the inside, save for our still hideous bedroom and laundry room which are my projects for the winter!
