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.

Almost completeWell, this is the part of the project we sort of forgot to take pictures since we were on a roll. At the time the next few pictures were taken, we were very close to complete. Here you can see an overview of the entire playground.

First post goes upOur first task was to remove the small straight railing separating the stairway from the upper level. We then installed the newel post and half-newel which supports the new oak railing. To the left, you can see the newel post in place-- the yellow device is a post level.
