It's been awhile since I've posted on this blog.
in the proverbial sense....
whatever that means....
I don't talk that way....
has been laying hardwood flooring upstairs.
After he painted this stairwell...all by himself.
I won't even say how he did it.
Because I can't explain it, nor can I find any pictures that I took.
Which I know I did.
One thing I have been doing, is carrying flooring upstairs.
A little bit at a time.
It's hard to tell because we have most of it covered,
but he has two bedrooms finished.
I have been doing other things around the house.
I decided to do some bathroom decorating.
I took this spaghetti jar
and painted the inside of it with Coral Belle paint.
(I still have half a gallon of this paint)
So this is the shelf by our bathtub.
I still need something on the wall above, but it will come.
I think I'll go soak in the tub and enjoy my little bit of decorating....
as it's hard work carrying flooring upstairs.

Finally!!! We are priming and painting the walls upstairs.
So, we had the primer tinted 80% of the Creamy color. Now when we paint with the Creamy paint, we will still see where we painted, and it will go on smoothly because we primed the walls first. If you don't prime first, you'll be painting two coats with paint because the first coat gets sucked up into the drywall, and primer is cheaper.

While I was on vacation, Dave started dry walling the upstairs. Which he knew I wanted to hire done. So, I'm guessing he waited for me to leave, and asked Vickie's husband, Robert, to help him carry it upstairs....
He's been up there every day since I've returned. Hanging drywall. I'm staying downstairs because one person dragging drywall dust through the house is enough!

I thought I would show you some of the behind the walls stuff that goes on in a home.
Lots of wiring.
Lots of plumbing
Also lots of duct work, and insulation.
Have a great weekend!
And PS - Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Yes I realize it's been a long while. Here's the deal.
Dave has had a very rough winter.
He got that cough/flu thing that was going around.
Then it went away...for about two days.
Then it came back.
Then it went away while we were In Florida...
Then it came back with a vengeance.
Two rounds of steroids and two rounds of antibiotics later he's finally healthy again!
And he's started on the upstairs.
Come on up! The lights are on.
I've helped a little bit with insulation.
So this is the front bedroom. There are two bedrooms and a bathroom in the middle of them.
The ceilings are going to have a slight vault in the bedrooms.
This front bedroom has a balcony and lots of windows. I think we'll probably sneak up here to sleep now and then for fun!
Just a picture of the back bedroom full of insulation!
This room is a closet. Behind that door is attic. Most of our upstairs is attic.
That's all for now....It's exciting to see the walls going up in the closet. It was actually a very small little linen closet and we decided to blow it out into an upstairs storage closet. Why not? There's a LOT of attic space. Hope to be posting more soon!
