The "destruction" zone!

Progress in the "destruction" zone this week..., termites gone, flat roofs redone, kitchen granite in, most canned lights in, and most walls ready to be retextured. Not a bad week but boy is the money flying out the door!
The growing pile of destruction goodies - only 4 weeks to go....will we make it?

One of four closet painting projects for the day - well....1/4 done almost!

That's Terry trying to figure out his new paint sprayer.

Looks a bit better with just one coat of paint.

One corner of normalcy - do you like the granite?

And the work begins.....

First things first - getting rid of all the bugs!
Let the destruction begin...

Removing the lovely shingles was a pretty easy job.

We now have another window in the master bedroom - who puts drywall over a window?!!!

Samuel MAX Openshaw

Samuel MAX Openshaw was born on Sept. 14, 2009 at 6:00pm in Provo, Utah. He is our eighth grandchild and is sleeping in the cradle Pops made for all the grandkids.
The Openshaw family with baby Max on the day Zane (right) was ordained a Deacon at church. Even Zuka, the new dog, wanted to be in the picture.

Ellie is the big sister now and loves Max

What were they thinking?!!!

Well, hope we haven't lost our minds. Yesterday we took possession of our new home and boy does it need work! It is in Laguna Niguel and needs everything!!! If only we had unlimited funds (and time).Wish us luck! New address (in about 6 weeks after hopefully all the major work is done) is 24311 Toponas Ct. LN 92677.
Guess they like the rustic look!

Don' you love the pink and blue windows in the living room?

A view of some of the overgrown, termite infested yard. Note the window that is covered by drywall on the inside! I love gardening but this is a bit overwhelming.
