I've been a bad boy . . . so long since I've posted anything!

Well, lets start with Jo's house . . . we finally decided on new plants for the front!


And we have been working on the back porch . . . a bit more to do, but it is looking good . . .
Curtains are back to be hemmed right and that gutter and facia are pending replacement.  And notice the stucco is painted! . . . still have the siding to replace, but the whole back of the building is all one color now!!

Then there is my house . . . it is painted! the downspout is straightened out and the trim is all repaired.
So much nicer . . . still haven't chosen and door and shutter color . . . and the next picture is the back . . . just showing the painting done all around.

Construction finished . . . we have a kitchen . . . pending painting . . . and curtains . . . and . . . etc.

Coming in the back door you see . . .

Then turn to look at the stove . . .

Walk in and look back toward the door . . .

This is the wall you are following in from the back door down the hall . . .

as you head down the hall toward the dining room . . .

here is the hall down between the butler pantries . . . the kitchen pantry, broom closet and a half bath.

a decent sized half bath

with fairly comfortable area . . . and curtains are coming!

The broom closet pull out . . . with storage closet above.

Dining room as you come in from the kitchen hall

Dining room looking back from the living room

The laundry has moved to the second floor . .  in the current master bath.

A good amount of linen closet space.

With more closets on the other side . . .

and the machines in the middle.
It has been a long time coming . . . still have the bathroom to finish, but I think painting the kitchen and dining room is the first priority . . . and perhaps the outside stucco painting . . .

Decided to get out for a sunday drive . . . during Hurricane Hermine . . . As you can see, it wasn't too tough a hurricane to put up with!

Watching the horrible Hurricane Hemine

Trying to show the windy conditions . . .check out the gulls

gulls working to stay in place . . .

moved up to Delaware City and looking across to Pea Patch Island

Delaware City, this is the state park on the river . . .

Pea Patch Island built as a fort but used as a prison during the civil war

I'll assume this is a dredge . . . just sitting a little up river from Delaware City

The New House . . . built in 1822 per documents I've seen . . . but I haven't been through the deeds yet to verify it!
It is the other side of the alley from Jo's . . . with one really ugly porch on the front!
