We aren’t finished as you will see.

The mantle shelf has still not arrived. The kitchen hood is not up and I am the photographer

but this will give you a great idea of where we started and how far we have come.

I hope you enjoyed the journey.

I failed to get the proper angles to show the complete renovation. We will be sure to do that next visit.

Note the use of swivel chairs in the family area so that you can join conversations at both ends of the room.

That’s about as far as I got with picture taking.

After this, it was about time for us to go.

Took one last peek at the golf course. No excuse for not having your putt down.

Took Jeff to see the club.

Player’s Club

And bid adieu.

We’ll be back in October for a little touching up.

Thanks for sticking with me. Did I give you more details that you wanted?

I really would like to know. This is all for you after-all.

To read the whole story start here.

On Day 5 the ditch from the new septic connection for the added bath was filled.

The dragonflies completed their flight to their new habitat.

They brought some butterflies with them.

We finished hanging the last of the heavy mirrors. (That man can do anything.  ANYTHING I tell you.)

Jeff made a run into Jacksonville to pick up some art from local artist John Beard.

We cleaned up all of the mess.

We finished unpacking all of the glassware.

Then, at last, it was time to show off our work.

Since the owners had the advantage of knowing what everything looked like before (we even had fun reviewing the pictures before they went inside)

I am going to break this into two parts.

I will show you their expressions as

Checking out the killer kurtain. 🙂

People ask me why we are willing to do so much, work so hard on move-ins. This is why.

And this..

And when tears start, I would do it all over again … right then.

NO, that’s not really the bedding. I was just trying to cover up the mattresses.

Time to see for yourself. Let me go find the befores and I will be right back.
