They set the lights in a temporary bays and we noodled inside the plastic tent that protected all our house innards from the week of crazy rain. It was overcast, but the greenhouse effect made it about 7,000 degrees inside the courtyard tent. We tried to make our decisions quickly!
|Skylights placed temporarily. You should've seen them hoisting that center|
one up from the lower level. It weighs alot!
|The finish work on the beams between the skylights. For this picture, the lights weren't in yet.|

Then, while we were away in Disney wrestling with our rainy weather, the sky miraculously cleared here in the Bay Area and - - - yessirree!! We got exterior paint!!! It's still not completely finished, but we are pleased as punch with the color. It's similar to the old color, but brighter and shinier!

|Out with the old....|
|New hallway scones to take the place of the weirdly placed overhead|
fixtures that were there before. Note to original builder
- - you can't hang ceiling lights on a sloped ceiling...
|The fixtures are new, the globes were reused. This is in the laundry room.|
The globes can't be see very well in this photo, but they are true mid-century gems.
|These are the fixtures that will be in the pool room and the wii room.|
Right now this one in is George the Younger's room.
|These are the BIG Globes that will be in each of the boys' rooms.|
An updated look on a traditional mid-century globe.
The kitchen is now mostly put back together - - and we are already trying to figure out the timing (i.e. when we will have the moola) to get the one that we really really want. For now, I can say with a high degree of happiness that AT LEAST IT ISN'T PINK any more!!
|Birch on the left. Oak on the Right. Fingers crossed.....and waiting for Jorge!!|
Most importantly - - we spied this in the garage on Sunday....
And finally - - the first buds on our wee apple tree. Spring is here and the move is now scheduled for April 27th! Ready for three weeks of GO GO GO!!!!
