Remember Last December.............A Project was Born!

This view is going taken from down the stairs from
the first floor of the ranch. This family room has wall out
french doors and fireplace.  It stays hot down here!
Don't you just love my paper shades, lol.

This is looking into the sports bar room from the family room.
This is an engineered hardwood flooring.   The cabinet
tops have not been made yet.  That is right after Christmas.

Of coarse I have to have an oven for pizza nights.
There are two closets in this room.  It also has
two walk out french doors and the bathroom is located right
next to the french doors.

This view is looking from the french doors into the room.
The entry to the left is the sports bar.  The work out room is
right across from the bathroom and the craft room is right
across from the bar entering from the side.  The door open
in the center is the way to the main living area.  The door
to the right is the storage area.  It's been a long process.
We have the trim, doors, bar tops, tile in the computer nook and
bathroom to lay yet. Then the carpet! I am so ready for this to be
finished.  We where delayed due to the passing of my mother n law.
So what's next! My to do list from last year's projects!
So this is why I've not had much time to blog and my daughter is
getting married March 5th.  So I still have a busy first quarter.

Lady In Red, The Other Woman In My Husbands LIfe

Here she is! She was a complete off the frame restoration! And she is looking so fine!

All Original

Paint Job by Schroeder's (my son-n-law)

Her first ride after restoration! And she screams!

Back in the 60's.  We took her out for a drive and she still gets the looks!

My hair blew in the wind and I loved it, a great ride.

Headed back to the garage for a real cleaning and ready for her cover until the next sunny day!

Honey I know she took 5 years to restore but she looks wonderful for 44 years old.

I got to drive her last night and I was scared to death.

So beautiful...............and she rumbles!

The hardtop is not completed yet........wait till winter.

She is all decked out in her red, black and chrome.........she look so fine.

I'm very proud of my husband who brought her back to life.
Thanks, honey let's take a spin around the neighborhood!

What a mess........I haven't been able to stay focused!!

The last 10 weekends have been spent working down in our basement.
All the framing for each room (bar room) (man cave) bath room where all
roughed in.  The plumbing is finished.  The only thing left to do
before dry wall in the wiring.  Hubby says he needs two days to
get the electrical done.  I've been getting contractors in for bids on the dry
wall because hubby doesn't want to do this job.  He is back on working
on restoring his 66 corvette.  I'm very lucky that we got this far already.
The shower and the vantity is bought.  I am still deciding on flooring, cabinets for
the bar area, ovens and wall color.  I know just exactly where the dish room
is going!  The gym is complete and my craft, flower craft room is complete.
Due to all the overflow in those areas I will show them when these rooms are
completed.  A lot going on.

I feel like Gollumn.  I am also working on the back porches.
Selecting paint for laundry room and cabinets.  Selecting paint
for dinning room and floyer.  Chair railing for dinning room, kitchen nook
and large kitchen hallway have not been finished yet.  However the chair railing
and frame trim has been completed in the floyer and down the entry hall ways. in progress..............

This is the bar kitchen area. There will be fridge undercounter,
a double oven and cabinets in this area for bar glasses etc. This
room is really large.

This is the area where the bar stools will be....................................Doors to right is the gym area

Gym thru the doors to the right, doors to the left is a large room for crafty and my weddings.

There are 4 large rooms in the basement and one storage room.  I can't wait to get these
completed because it will be great for intertaining our family on holidays.

This is why I've been in hiding.
