Mom’s house being built (March)

Mom’s house as it was being built. I’d send her links to these as her house was being built. Mom sold her house this month. Lots of discussions about logistics, finances and getting the kitchen work arranged.


Galway

While John was busy tiling my mom’s house, I borrowed him to do my kitchen back splash. He liked working in a house with heat!

Cooking

Various adventures in cooking - though honestly it looks more like I was juicing.



Mom’s house being built (February)

Mom’s house as it was being built. More tile work - plus some work on my kitchen (more pix of that here! Tiles of course.

Mom’s house being built (January)

Mom’s house as it was being built. I’d send her pictures as it went. The Great Tile Mishap, 2003. I mixed up the bathroom tile.

Mom’s house being built (October)

Mom’s house being built (September)

Mom’s house as it was being built. I’d send her links to these as her house was being built. Well, back in late July I told mom that, i’ll take pictures tomorrow. padraig wants to make it all neat for the pictures. the inside insulation is up, the door frames are up, the window sills are in, the outside is plastered and the ceilings are up. it should be plastered before you get here so you can smear bits of paint on the walls to test out colors.
