Here are a few pictures as we near the end of the project.

Our formerly lush new lawn is not looking very healthy. There is still some green in there (not apparent in the photo) but I went ahead and over-seeded with additional grass seed this weekend.



We had our kitchen patio door replaced as part of this project. We still have to paint most of our new doors:

The project has slowed considerably. We are now at the mercy of the sub-contractors schedules.

However, we passed some more inspections and there definitely is progress since the last update!

We have a new roof on the entire house. We chose a commercial spray-on foamy material due to the very shallow pitch of our roof. The foam adds a significant layer of insulation from the hot Florida sun. The roofers wrapped our house in plastic to keep the spray from getting on the windows. This reminded us of a scene from the movie E.T.



You can see the foam material peeking over the edge of the roofline:

To save money on the addition we decided we would do the painting. We missed the fact that this meant we would have to do most of the caulking! Kristen has been busy doing that and filling the nail and screw holes.





The crew did a really good job at this corner junction between the old house and the addition. All of the trim, old and new, will be painted with a fresh color before we are finished:
