Olddog was kind enough to tell me how to post a picture. (Kudos to olddog \"\" ) Here is an exterior shot of my house. I will try to follow up with more useful pictures when we can get up the driveway.

OK, it has been almost a year, so I decided I should finally upload some "after" pics that I happened to download off the camera yesterday. This shows the beam the Mr. ended up installing in the basement. It is 6 2-bys, with the joists cut back to allow the beam to go in between. The original construction was to have the joists rest on top of the beam, leaving very little headroom down the middle of the basement. Now grownups can walk across the room without ducking!
