an overdue update

About seven months ago we started a little bit of a project on the compound.  I have done a terrible job documenting the progress and now we are nearly done!  We can see the light of the finish- we have walls and floors and windows and ceilings and lights and sinks and toilets and doors and outlets and cabinets!  All that remains is finish work and flooring for the bedrooms.  We still need some outside work- like decking, painting and landscaping- but  we are almost there!  So here we are, an update with pictures!

Our start at landscaping- a lot of bare root shrubs and trees as well as our three Christmas trees from last year:



And now inside- from the existing living room with the new opening (where it was the outside wall just a few months ago):



The new library/kitchenette/coffee & wine bar:

And there you have it.  Next time hopefully there will be furniture and finished flooring and no paint cans in the pictures.  We are all getting very excited to get unpacked, organized and  to be dust free.
