I am slowly getting projects done. I had wanted to finish Ben’s room first – but the requirements for getting a VA loan to refinance the house is making me do a lot of smaller projects first. I have to paint the barn and scrape and paint the front porch. I painted the dining room. I had to add handrails to all the stairs, even those in the barn (which I admit isn’t really a bad thing). It is kind of a pain – the VA doesn’t care if we have homeless veterans, but god forbid that they live in a house with peeling paint on the barn (or front porch).
