House Update – Pictures and Recent Activities

So – it’s been a while since I’ve been able to post. We’ve spent much of the last couple of weeks finishing with installing the crown moulding, painting, and doing cleanup and a little unpacking in preparation for Mr. Man’s Grandparent’s Visit over this last weekend.
