Can’t complain about the view…

The exterior right now, thank you Karlsson’s Fasad for an excellent job. Next time we’ll be home the add on will be done (I hope!) and the rest of the walls be made of bricks.

Exterior color – Sto 16292 (the triangle to the right). It turned out lighter than I thought but I’m super happy about the result. And that brick… oh yeah baby!!

Thank you Sweden for these two weeks! There was not enough time for all my lovely friends, but I’ll see you in the summer. We are now back in The United States. The flight went great and I finally got some sleep. Jet lag, stupid full moon and an early morning flight have really been screwing up my beauty sleep :)

Some shutters, gutters and lights are still missing. And the yard needs a clean up and some love before the ‘For Sale’ sign is up!

Buffing in making, before the second coat of stain was added.

That was a little update on my renovation.

I will, when it’s complete, show before and after pictures!

This is where La Familia will spend the afternoon!

But first I will go over to my house renovation on Darlington Street. I haven’t seen it since the beginning of the summer. Hopefully that house is up for sale in a month or so :)

Until next time

It’s seven years since we built the summer house and I finally really like the garden. When everything is new it’s just tiny plants and it looks empty, and also a lot of weeding needs to get done. Now it’s less job to keep it nice since all plants are bigger and very filling. Me like.
