Last Working Weekend Before a Break


We have spent this weekend doing what has become the usual – tackling one job after another and crossing them off the list. Both Harry and I are very tired of spending most of our free moments just about every weekend working on the house. We have been able to keep our motivation up by keeping an eye on the calendar. When we take out our trip weekends, we have ten more weekends to work on the house before October. So we continue to keep our eye on the finish line when we are tempted to take a day off.



Harry spent some time doing some maintenance items in preparation for our trip this week.







The door to the office is finished, and looking good!



I don’t remember whether I ever updated on this, but a few weeks ago we took down the canopy frame that was on our back deck.






Our last real big project awaits us after we get back from Lake George…






taking down this shed….



We wish it was in good shape, and an asset for the sale, but alas, it is not. It doesn’t even have a roof, just a tarp pulled across the top. It has been on our list to do since the beginning, but we delayed until this summer as we wanted to tie this project in with getting a dumpster. So this will be our next job.

But first, we have a few days to relax!! Only one more day until we head to Lake George, and our first Heartland Owners Rally!!


  1. Have a great time at your Rally and totally forget about the jobs waiting at home. They will still be there when you get back so just have fun.

  2. Someday you will look back on this time and marvel that it's all over :) The best is yet to come.

    Enjoy your rally.

  3. nothing wrong with taking some time for yourselves!..don't work too hard this week!

  4. Have a great time at the rally. You deserve some time off.

  5. Woohoo, another outing! You'll have a great time. Isn't summer already going so fast?!

  6. You all will be so tired by the time you hit the road you will need to just go to a special, quiet spot and rest!!
    You two have done an outstanding job on your house....I hope the new owners will appreciate all you've done!

    Enjoy your rally, have some fun and get some rest!!

  7. Ahhh...your first Heartland rally! So excited for you! Hope you enjoy yourselves as much as we did at our first...second and third! Hopefully we'll meet down the road someday!

  8. You deserve a break! Sure hope you relax and rest and have lots of fun on your trip.

  9. Have fun at the rally. There's always fun to be had and new friends to meet... usually some good eats too!
