A Classic Paint Job: An Undersized Urbanite Update!

It's been a while!  I still have doubts about being able to finish on time, but I am glad that I at least got some time this week, so far, to work on my house.  My apologies for the pictures.  They were snapped quickly and unedited.  Ain't nobody got time for that!  Haha.

I love the classic paint job that I went with.  So fabulous.  

 Dry fitted the porch on, too, and slid in the patches for the roof.  This is such a great house! I adore it.  I saw some pretty interesting designs and architectural things on a recent run with the dog, and I have something fun planned for the porch posts.  :)  There is still a decision to be made about whether or not I will use the railings....
I also managed to get papers replaced, trim cut and the attic area prepped to become the craft room.

There should be more updates soon.  I have a better work space now, with better access.  And I think I finally have a schedule that allows for it.  :)  Not too much time left now!  Less than 30 days!
