The sounds of screw guns, circular saws, and hammers are ringing throughout my home. It is *quite* glorious! I am so elated over the progress in our addition that I'm almost giddy! Chris, our BIL Dan, and Xavier have built a wall between the laundry room and the entry way and have been working on my closets (yes, plural! One will be a coat closet and the other a cleaning closet! Eureka!).
Xavier has been learning a lot. It has been great for him. Plus, he *loves* doing things with the men-folk! :)
This will finish up the framework stuff....Chris will do a little more wiring and the plumbing (for the washer and a utility sink to go in the laundry room) and then finish insulating the walls. From there, drywall will go up...then mudding/sanding, flooring, painting and then MOVE IN! Oh my, oh my! It is all just so exciting. :)
For previous links on what has been happening in our addition...go HERE and HERE!
I really appreciate you all sharing in my excitement with me. I know it's not as exciting to those who don't live here...but after 12 years of *almost* patiently waiting...it's finally happening. To see each step come along and get us closer to living in and using these areas is just mind-boggling to me!
So that's what's been happening here! Although I am not much help in the building part of it all, I do make sure the men are well fed (grilled ham and cheese sandwiches with homemade fries for lunch ~ when while baking my Pampered Chef Stone Cookie Sheet *broke* in half! Can you believe that? It was crazy! Thankfully, we were able to salvage half the fries before they all fell! Whew!). When it is time to paint, do curtains and get everything situated in the rooms ~ that will be my domain! :) Until then, I just watch in awe!
Have a great rest of the weekend! Thanks for visiting!
