House Renovation: It looks done from the outside!

The guys came this week to put the siding on after it passed the first inspection. They seriously are so fast, efficient, and CLEAN. They also did some extra things that they did not have to, for no extra charge, like fix our fence gate, replace some rotten trim on the outside, and made sure to remove the siding all the way to the chimney so there wouldn't be a noticeable line (because although the siding is VERY close to the same that was on before, there's a slight difference in texture). We've really been pleased with them and have considered asking for a quote to help us finish the inside!
We have plans to paint the brick someday, grow grass, beautify it, and I can't decide if I'd like to build a covering or pergola over part of the deck. But for now the outside is done and it looks like it's always been there to me! (and maybe best of all....no more squirrels in the walls!)
During that inspection though we learned some things about further inspections that did not make us very happy that we tried to be law abiding citizens. So we are unsure of our plans going forward at this point, but the room will progress eventually! It will just take a few more days of phone calls and quotes and decisions. Good times.

Good luck with that. We HATE dealing with the city. And that's little ole' Newberg. I can't imagine having to deal with the bureaucracy in OKC. It looks great though.
