Dave got all of the duct work and lines (water, gas, etc.) finished in the ceiling of the "living area" of the basement. So I finished the insulation.
And we put the last few sheets of drywall up.
Now we have nail holes to fill, dry wall taping and mudding to do. It seems it's been a long haul to get to this part...and I'm ready for a vacay.
So I wore this shirt as a hint. Shows he doesn't pay attention to what I wear! He didn't get the hint.
Anyway, last weekend he had to work...at work. And it was warm out! And I reckon I should do a little explaining here. Above the basement is a house! But the only thing finished upstairs is siding and framing. It's not insulated, there are no walls up, no ceiling up, you can even see a bit of the outside...so it is ccccooooollllldddddd upstairs. Which means, other than the "living area" of the basement, it's cold in the basement. Not as cold as upstairs because there is insulation in the walls and there are walls up in the basement, but the only area in the basement with a ceiling, and insulation in the ceiling is the living area. But, because it was in the 40's and 50's last weekend, and we have a kerosene heater, we warmed the craft/storage room up a bit and I got to paint walls!
So, when I was talking to my sister and my cousin on the phone said, "hey you two, I'm having a painting party on Saturday, you wanna come?"
But my cousin!!! Well, she heard..."waah waaah waaah waaaah...PARTY!...waah waaah waaah!"
So the next day I got an e-mail from her, "I'm in! What time do the festivities start? What can I bring?"
How about 9:00 a.m., just bring old clothes.
Just look how much fun she is having!
Then, about an hour later, Dad showed up!
He knew it was a painting party, but he said it's too hard on Mom when he sits around the house. She has to think too hard trying to come up with stuff for him to do! (this isn't because he wants stuff to do, it's because Mom can't stand to have someone sitting around...gotta stay busy.)
DO YOU HEAR ME? I LOVE IT!!!
These lights...he got them years ago at a school auction. A whole skid of these lights for $5.00! For the skid! They all needed re-wired. He's an electrician by trade...so no big deal.
And this area is gonna be my craft room folks. (we are also using part of the room for storage) And ideas are swirling around in my head as I type.
