Weekly Winners

Welcome to my first Weekly Winners! Over the next two months most of these pictures will be of my house rennovation. After that I'll have to find something else interesting to show :-) Please maximize these pictures for full effect (especially the flood pics I took)

Before we get to the rennovation, have you heard about the flood over here? A lot of the St. Louis area is under water. The main road to my new house has been cut off and closed due to water. These are pictures of the road I can't cross: (seriously ... maximize these pics!)

We finished up a big project in the family room today. See this big woodstove and brick backing?

We got rid of it this week:

And finally it's covered! Sorry, folks ... for some reason this is the best pic we have of finishing it up:

If you're really intersted in this stuff, here is a link to my flickr collection. All of our rennovation pictures are being broken up by week worked & room worked. This will be updated each week: House Work Pics

Thanks for stopping by!

I had no idea St. Louis had such serious flooding and I'm not that far from you. Guess I've had my head in the clouds lately.

Congrats again on the new house. I would love to by some big old Victorian house and redo it from ground up.

Hi Welcome to weekly winners. Those flood pictures are really something, and you definitely have to maximize them to the the full effect. Good luck with the house renovation.

I have heard a little about the floods in St.Louis!

We lived in Alton for 3 yrs & in Arnold for 3 yrs. Lived there in 93 during the previous floods.

I'm new to Weekly Winners.

Stop by sometime. I'll fix you a glass of iced tea & you can put your feet up.
