Happy Post-Turkey Day! Yes, we are still alive here in East Boston. Things have been really crazy lately—in a good way. You can not imagine how wonderful the house looks. Everything is coming together and we can't believe that it will all be completed in one week. Seven months of fun. We are really going to miss all the "guys"—they have really become a part of our lives.
Wait until you see the floors!! They came out so great—the walls, the bathrooms, too. I actually learned how to tile last week with Joe Ferrante. I put subway tile in my shower and it looks great. Such a cool urban feel to it. Roger and his crew did the landscaping, and they also put up a white picket fence around the house. You can see a little bit from the webcams. Our house is on a corner so it really defines the perimeter and brings out the white of the windows. Family and friends that come by cannot get over how great the transformation is.
Sorry this is so brief—will update more asap.
