Tackle it Tuesday.....



If you were here last week and saw this was my tackle.........




I hope you will not be too disappointed to see that this is as far as we got. There was a new light/fan installed though. I am really hoping to show you completed pictures next week! I hate having this room torn apart!




This is the front of my house a few years ago..........




....and this is it this morning. The bathroom had to be put on hold for a week so DH could clear the front of the house for the contractor to start a wrap around porch for us today. 2 home improvement tackles at one time is enough to put me over the edge.



..... Hopefully next week I will have both completed and be very happy!!

A wrap around porch...how lovely! I remember when our ONLY bathroom was torn up and I was 9 months pregnant. That was 16 years ago I feel as if I may have finally recovered from that trauma!

Sounds like two big projects! It seems home projects much longer than what is anticipated.

You're house is DARLING! I can't wait to see the porch when it's done.

You will just love that wrap-around porch. Are you going to screen any of it?

Like I said last week, I don't know why but bathrooms are so hard to remodel. Best of luck to you. :)

Those are two big projects but I'm sure it will be worth it. Especially the porch. I would love a wrap around porch. It won't happen in this house but a girl can dream. Good luck on your remodels.
