Working Bees!


We have been so blessed through out our whole renovation.
We've had so many people volunteer their time to help us out.
We can not thank you all enough for all of your help.
With packing, moving, scrapping, cleaning, painting, more scrapping,
taking off ugly wallpaper, stripping cabinets, hanging,hosing,
raking, installing, moving, unpacking...
the list just goes on and on!

Here are photos of the working bees in action.

Photos aren't in chronological order

Enjoy!

Id like to mention that i gave Marty the ONLY color that we had... LOL i was told that the paint on the counter was the paint... so i trusted my wife and blindly gave it to him... Now i know to question everything she tells me... LOL
