EDMONDS, WA :: Will the renovating ever end? Probably not, but after nearly five weeks of working on the house, we think we deserve a small break. It has been a week since we moved in, and the new house is finally starting to feel like home. There are still floors to finish, walls to paint, cabinets to reface, and countless other details to work on - and that's just the interior. We have not yet even had the chance to think about the exterior and our yard (much to our new neighbors' chagrin).

The hard work is paying off, and we're very proud of what we've accomplished so far. We're also very, very grateful for the help we've had from family and friends. Many thanks to our parents and Joe for their tireless help and love, thanks to Justin and Jake for helping with the floors and the move, and sincere thanks to David for his heavy-lifting work and professional carpet installation - we love it!

I was hoping to chronicle the renovations in more detail, but I accidentally formatted a compact flash card full of photos from our first two weeks of work... Oh well, all was not lost... Have a look at how far we've come:

Looks like a lot of hard work, but the result is stunning. Hopefully, you'll have a house warming soon.

Hey guys, it looks just wonderful! When are you flying down to San Diego to work on my backyard? (Perhaps I won't hold my breath...)
