As the days fly by, progress is being made on the house. The girls volunteered to tackle Joseph’s cabinets. The cabinets were sanded and now they are being painted: a total of three coats, one primer and two final.
You have to understand Saturday was not a cool day. But, I didn’t hear one single word of complaint from my incredible sisters. Way to go, girls!
Joseph designed a great way to hang the cabinet doors so the paint could dry.
Jesse caulked the doors.
The guys replaced windows.
The house is really taking shape!
In order to be able to access behind the shower during installation in the master bath, Joseph had to cut a hole in the kitchen wall so he could work there.
Dad continues painting.
John drove his truck into the back yard, so Jesse could unload tile there.

The girls worked all day on the cabinets Saturday, finishing up the primer coat and applying the first real coat. It seemed there were no “new” pictures to take: they were often in the same position, doing the same thing! When the guys came in for dinner, the word they used to describe the cabinets was: “BEAUTIFUL!”
Christopher was a true blessing. If you know Christopher, you know how incredible he is to pitch in and do whatever needs to be done, adding his spark of life to it.
Jesse mixing thinset which goes under the Hardiebacker.
This one you might have to look at for a little while to figure it out. The shot was taken by putting the camera in the “trap door” hole and looking up. Joseph had crawled back in and was helping the shower to clear the faucet as it was lowered into its final position.
Very exciting to see the shower in place and the Hardiebacker on the floor ready to tile.
Dining room ready for tile!

it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!”
