Once again, my in-laws came out to help with the house renovations. Thank goodness! We could really use it! LOL!
This past weekend, they worked on finishing leveling the floor in the hallway, insulating the hallway, and continuing to mud the nursery and guest rooms. They all have done an amazing job, and it is really starting to come together. The hallway looks awesome! I'm excited to see the finished product. We have really made quite a change in that hallway by knocking down 3 walls and adding in a corner closet and built-in. It is going to look so good!!! I can hardly wait! We are still on the hunt for the newel posts, spindles, and handrail for the upstairs landing. If anyone knows of a place they can recommend, please let us know! We don't want to spend more than $100 per newel post (we need 2 1/2), yet we want ones that are at least 4 1/2" in width to make them feel more authentic for the age of our home.

One of the nights when we were all eating dinner, we had an unexpected house guest. Jim looked up to see a big ol' fat ground hog staring in at us from our front door stoop. We've never noticed a ground hog before, so it was a complete surprise. He was just sitting there as if waiting for us to invite him in. LOL! He didn't seem afraid of us at all. After a few moments, he calmly walked off to lounge under one of the bushes we have out front. Maybe the septic guys destroyed his home when we had the new septic installed...
