Finishing Touches.....Soon

On Monday Durable Restoration will return one final time to finish the exterior brick work. The first open house will be on Sunday Sept. 14th from 3 to 5pm. 
It has been a long process to get to where the home is now. It would be nice to see the last little bit be completed. I hope a new owner will take it and do the final items and then cherish the home for a good long while.

Here are a couple of exterior before and after shots. I will be in the house this week to take pics of the ceilings for another before and after.

A little look inside…

Nothing fancy with the posting of the pics. It's a tad bush league but it gets the point across.
Some notes…. in all of the photos the house has not been cleaned. The floors are dirty and soon they will be cleaned and I will of course do some additional photos at that time that go room by room.
The more time spent here, the more one likes it.
