Renovation Updates
Home renovations are not fast.  At all.  I thought I already comprehended this, but then just to keep me on my toes, I realized they move even slower than I pictured.   Regardless of how fast the progress is being made, it is at least being made.  Since it ...

Building Permit Is Up!
Warning, this update is going to go from the least exciting development to the most exciting development.  So, stick with me.  It gets a little better than the first series of photographs. Since we are buying our house through Community Housing Partners, pa...
