Starting on the Upstairs!

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.
 Back bedroom.
 As you can see, lot's of insulating going on.  But before we insulated, he wired all of the rooms for lights and ceiling fans, and he plumbed the bathroom.
 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!



  1. Sorry to hear about your husband's illness, I had a double dose of that earlier this year. How exciting to get the upstairs done. Looking forward to pictures.

  2. Woohoo! Glad you're starting on the upstairs and sorry to hear about Dave's problems (not sure I knew his name before - he's always been your Shug!). I am in awe of what you guys are doing - it's such a huge undertaking to do it all yourselves. I can imagine designing my own home, but not physically building it ourselves .
