45 Bible Verses to Write on House Framing During Renovation

We’ve been renovating our Sunrise Farm for two months now, and things are moving along! Last week we closed in the drywall, so the house is finally looking like a house again. No more exposed framing!

Before our subs put up the last of the drywall, I luckily remembered this tradition I read about years ago. I’ve wanted to do this in every single house we’ve ever remodeled – but for one reason or another, never got the chance.
