View from the Moo: Labor Day Salute

It's Labor Day, a day when American humans celebrate work by taking the day off! (Sounds like typical human logic, doesn't it?) Jack & I think there is no better way to celebrate Labor Day than to show off the fruits of our Dad (and Mom's ) labor!
Here is the new door and lights Dad put on the side entrance... and the lights work! That's because of all the hard work by the electric company workers after hurricane Irene turned off the lights in hundred of thousands of homes here last week. Mom says those workers are her heros! We hope they have a good day today (although we know they have to keep working till all the lights are on everywhere.)
Come on in and see what the pawrents have been up to -
Dad is finished with reconstructing the hallway! Check it out!
New tile, ceiling, walls, lights, doors....
gosh, everything's new out here!
Here's the view from our husky door (it leads out to our yard).
Mom made a special painting for this wall -
its right across from the bathroom for,
as I like to say, "an interesting view from the loo", ha-roo roo!

Mom based it on her photos of Rose Island Lighthouse
right here in Newport - she says its a furry interesting place to visit!
Here's a few pics of the hallway as it progressed:
the original back entrance (that's the bathroom window outside)
Having the back half enclosed:

New back door, starting the ceiling
(see the old "outside" door still half-way down the hall?)
July 2011: ceiling & lights in, concrete floor leveled out, vinyl & old shingle siding stripped off:
From no door....
To new door!
And thru it all, Jack has been lead Siberian snoopervisor.
Good job snoopervising, Jack!
And Happy Labor Day to all woo hard workers out there!

That's today's veiw from the Moo,
Toodle-woo!

Looks like a big job -- and one that was really well done. Hope Irene wasn't too rough on you guys.

Your mom and dad are VERY talented!!! It all looks great. We're sure it wouldn't be half as good if you all hadn't been snoopervising!
Luv,
Dave

Jack - what an excellent job you did. Though I guess we have to give a little credit to the humans, too.

We would like your dad to come to our house and do all the home improvement projects that mom keeps talking about doing, but never does!

Great job snoopervising Jack! I'm really good at that too!

wow, that's really cool. is that a sibe room so they can go in and out while you're not home? i miss having that for our dogs here. so we keep them inside. but it's nice to have that option of an in/out so you don't have to worry if you're gone a little longer than 6 hours.

that's a really great job tho. and i love that view from the loo!
