The exterior paint has been making slow, on again-off again progress as much as the weather will permit, and today the painters moved inside to start painting the first floor.  We opted to paint the second floor ourselves, and last weekend Amy and I did a bunch of trim caulking and painting.  My lovely moms and our friend Tom came over to help as well, and we managed to get the kids rooms (mostly) painted, and a lot of headway on the trim.

Outside there has also been some progress on the tuck pointing.  The porch was in pretty bad shape before, and it’s nice to see it shaping up.  Eventually we will have the whole house fixed, but we are just starting with the front porch and eastern wall.  The tuck pointer tried to match the original grout color, which was surprisingly light and… pinkish.  I think it will look good after it sees a season of weathering though.

The master bedroom doors finally came in, and I am very excited about how they look.  I think letting the light into the hallway from the bedroom was a good idea. I can’t wait to see it all come together with the paint and flooring!

The tile work in the bathroom is all done now as well, and it’s looking pretty nice. By the end of the week I am hoping the bathroom will be all done.

I thought we were going to get to move in around mid-April, but now it’s looking more like the end of April/early May.  Oh well, I have survived this long, whats another week or two?
