Back to Civilization and What I've been Up To

Well, I'm back to civilization.  The past 4 days working on the new house were exhausting and exciting, yet peaceful.  I actually enjoyed the quiet that comes with no television, radio, or internet.

The big project that I've been working on is almost complete, but I can't wait to show you what I've been up to...

So here it is... a look at our Board and Batten so far...

Another coat (or two) of white paint and a few touch ups left to go!
I'll be working on a more in depth post about it all.
