Baseboards & Trim

My parents came up last week to help with the house and I used the slave labor to help us strip and sand down all the trim and baseboards in the dinning and living rooms. It took about 2 start days of dust, dirt, and sore backs to get it ready.

Here's a couple pictures of the sanded windows and baseboards.

We spent this last weekend staining and varnishing the two rooms off, for once we actually have some visible progress. We stained everything a dark rosewood color.

Landscaping & Stairs

We've made some additional progress on stripping the paint. The trim in the entry is finished and bottom flight of the stairs is finished. Still have about six steps left and all the spindles. Then I have three doors to finish before we can start to refinish everything.

Here's the before

Memorial weekend we added some paver stones along the sidewalk and Karina transplanted some hostas and flowers.
