02.27.15 Building a house is a piece of cake!

734401_833048396710692_1983591327_nWell this is the second time writing today’s blog.  The first one was finished complete with pictures and it disappeared.  Sure hope I remember everything I wrote in that one, it was good!

Friday, February 27, 2015 – Yep, building a house is a piece of cake, with the right contractor and subcontractors that is!  After a slow start due to holidays, rains, and other delays our house has gone up fast.  We are now within a week or two of the house being completed!! Thanks to Ronnie Glover, Cory Glover and all our subs!

A really nice and friendly trio of painters were at the house bright and early and started by prepping everything by filling nail holes and caulking corners and edges.  As we left I can hear them in the house spraying the ceilings!!!!! Here’s a couple of pics of their earlier work.

We also stopped at Walmart to pick up 5 items and came out1016835_1100500646642875_783139052894355040_n with 50. Just wanted fruit to make a fruit tray for Madisyn’s birthday party but we wound up buying almost enough food for us for a week. I’ve been having trouble finding our truck when I go shopping but today Dora in all her big glory was there for me to easily find!

Had a wonderful phone visit on a dear friend, Pat Turner, whose husband Bill died of Alzheimer’s and her neighbor was just diagnosed. I believe she is going to share my Alzheimer’s blog with the husband, who is very new to all this. If you know of someone my blog would help please share this link with them. https://rosalynsalzheimersblog.wordpress.com/

They painted all the doors, all the ceilings and the walls in the master bedroom, closet and bath. I was so tickled to see color on the walls. They will be back tomorrow and can’t wait to see it finished! Here’s pictures of today’s painting.  Roy and I really like painting the ceiling the same color as the walls and you can see that here.  The ceilings still look lighter even though they are the same color.

Our vinyl man, Floyd Fayard came this afternoon to finish caulking the work he did last week.  I showed him the new bench Roy made for down by the pond since Roy used the ends of the front porch columns to make the bench legs from.  Here’s pictures of the bench.
