Rosie Gets A New Set Of Steps.

I'm sure you've all been wondering, "What's going on at the Hawthornes' with regard to their renovation project?"

Well, Ed's pulled up the carpet from the steps.

Here, he's scraping the glue off the insides,

This is the very bottom step, with all the debris the original "carpenters" just dropped down and never bothered to clean up.
On thing about Ed, among many, HE'S NEAT!

Here, Ed's working his way upstairs
putting the new maple steps in.

As I said, HE'S NEAT!

Here's Mr. Hawthorne, sanding down the steps.

This is Mr. Hawthorne, VACUUMING!
Whoot, Ladies!
Step back. He's all mine.

Here's Rosie, cleaning the steps with de-natured alcohol.

Here I am putting a coat of polyurethane on.

The steps aren't done yet. We need to put a few more coats of the polyurethane on (see blue tape on wall), but almost there. And it's looking very nice.

How come y'all are doing the steps and not Ed

Ed did the hard part and Daddy and I did the easy parts. To save money.
