This has been quite a day. Yesterday we thought that there wouldn’t be any construction going on today. Man were we wrong! I have to say the following in big letters, so pretend I’m standing on the roof shouting this to the world:
I ABSOLUTELY LLLLOOOOVVVVEEEE THIS HOUSE WE ARE BUILDING!!!!!!!!!!! WOW, WOW, WOW!!
The transformation from yesterday to today (sheetrock and columns) make the house look much more finished and much more what we dreamed it would look like.
The sheet rock crew showed up early this morning,instead of Monday, and by the time I woke up already had the ceiling sheet rocked! By 2 o’clock they had the sheet rock hung in the entire house! The purple sheet rock in the pictures is where water might affect it so it’s water resistant. We can see rooms take shape and really love it even more. All of the rooms are good size and we couldn’t be happier!
The vinyl siding and columns guys game back this morning so there were trucks everywhere with every one working inside and out! Our contractor Ronnie came to check out things before he leaves for Disneyworld with his family for a week. Our concerns about the window header yesterday have been resolved. We compromised. We kept the headers which will now be painted to match the real white of the window wrapping. Also the space between the header and the large board of wrapping will be caulked to close in that space making it all look like one piece. I wanted the piece along the top of the window to be removed to but the header against the large board but that would cause a problem with water getting behind the header so like I said we compromised. Floyd our vinyl siding guy is on a plane right now heading to Colorado so the “fix” will happen when he return.
Yesterday there were sticks holding the porch up, today there are beautiful columns. I’ll say it again, I LOVE THIS HOUSE! Sure wish the sheet rock trailer wasn’t in the way but you can see how great it’s turning out!
Madisyn will be here soon so I want to wrap this up and get ready for the fun and activity we’ll have with her! A campfire and Smores are on the agenda!!
Ya’ll have a LOVELY VALENTINES! and Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
