Projects

It seems we're always working on a project around the house.  For some of the bigger one's, we've created some "photo timelines" or mini-blogs of the project as it progresses.  It's fun for us to look back after the project is complete and see how it came together. 

Browse through the albums below to check out some of these projects or click here for a large list of projects we've done, and some we still have planned.
