Moving along...

Things have been moving this week but the changes have not been as dramatic as last week. Thus, the picture drought.
The last window and exterior door were put in. All the exterior walls had to be replaced. This interior wall did as well.
Of course, everything that's been done has lead to MORE work that needs to be done. In addition to putting in can lights (dad) they had to redo part of the ceiling where a set of backstairs used to go up.
The nightmare (for the dimensionally challenged like me) wall is started between the kitchen and the dining room. The electrical is roughed in - including half a dozen things that dad thought I needed for now...or later.
The drywall is being delivered today. The insulation is going in right now and, hopefully, they'll be able to start drywall today or tomorrow.
After a hard day's work, all four kids needed to show grandpa and grandma their albums. I'm sure admiring four hundred pictures was just what they wanted at the moment.

Mom refinished the office floor, steps, living room floor, and is working on living room trim(the refinished floor made it look awful) and has cleaned everything in sight. Multiple times.
I think we should multiply their wages. Don't you? Of course, anything times zero we can afford. :P They've been a huge help. :)


  1. I'm going to be disappointed if you don't have to kick that new door to open it.....

  2. Now, now, don't be nasty! :P You're just sad because you're not around to observe the Clampits do remodeling! :D
