Stroll Down Memory Lane- Siding

I’ve been slacking the on the look back at our house building process.  Mainly because we didn’t take many pictures during this time period because we were doing super fun things like wiring and plumbing.  Not very photo worthy.

The last time we looked back, the house got some mortarless brick…

It was then time for the siding on the front…

Wasn’t our yard beautiful?? Love it.

We also finished siding the back of the house.  We hired the guy that framed the house to do the REALLY high siding.  DIY stops at a safe height…at least for Nate’s mom and I.

There you have it! Roughly 3 years ago.

What were you up to 3 years ago at this time?  I was about a month into being a pharmacist.  I worked 8-5 and then went to work on the house from about 6-9/10ish.  Every day.  I’m not sure how I did it.  I can barely manage to clean for an hour at night now…let alone paint all of the trim in the house. Craziness!


  1. My favorite phase in a project is when the decorative elements start to get installed. When you actually get to see your vision of the final result come to life vs, the construction phase. Again, I love the slate blue color you guys chose for the siding.
    As for what I was doing 3 years ago??? I can't remember. Must not have been too exciting!

  2. Wow I love that color on your house!! It's funny how you can be in a zone trying to complete something and not realize how much work you are really doing!! You guys were working hard! 3 years ago? raising kids, kids,kids, now 3 are in college!! Oh yeah thank you for following on my blog, I really appreciate that!! :)

  5. It's crazy how fast 3 years go by, and how much has changed too. Three years ago, I was just settled into out apartment, and planning a wedding less than two months away! You've given me so much inspiration to build our own house down the road.

  6. hmmmm 3 years ago, summer of 2008, i was working full time doing weddings at Disney in Orlando and heading into my last semester of college.

  7. Oooh, it finally looks like a real house! Let's see... 3 years ago today, I was just about to meet Eric *cue the "awwww!"* And I was headed into my last and hardest year of school. Glad that's over!

  8. Well, I really amazed at how much work you have accomplished. The house is looking great and it is such fun to see all of the changes. Waiting for update work.

  9. So worth the three years!! What a huge project.
