Gutters + Trim

Gutters are up — we went with a charcoal gray to match the roof.

In progress...

(Well, they had to come back 2x — and counting — to finish up, but still...)
While work was being done on the exterior, Chris the painter got all the closets painted.
Here are the master closets with all the shelving drying on the floor.
I adore these his and hers closets with the retro rounded walls!

And with that bit of positivity...
The rest of the house is DEFINITELY looking worse, not better!
Patchy progress
And the rotted master bathroom floor turned out to be a real mess for the guys to get out...
...Another story, to be continued...
Once the gutters were done, Chris put the darker trim color onto the windows:

Here is the finished product as of today, which I'm still trying to get used to.
Mike is already a fan of the more modern look.
This picture is trying to simulate what it will be like with the new door (and a painted chimney).
Landscaping and other details TBD!
Still looking for someone here in the US to make this door for a better price
than the European company we found this from online...

We had a long meeting with my Dad last night and learned the goal is to have us in the house by the end of the year. **Note** Still with PLENTY to do after that, however, it will be nice to do it without the extra commute from the temporary apartment. Fingers crossed!
