Hey Logan and Kim:
Its looking good, keep up the good work.
Keep in mind: nails are supposed to grow out of the fingers, not stick through them. Sorry about your mishap, be careful.
Glenn

Ouch! How old is the paint on those walls--are there serious lead issues to consider?

It's just like me to get home from work only to go online and watch more of it, hehe. I'm new 'round here and just want to say "Wow!" You sure know how to tackle a project.

Congrats on the new house. I'll be hangin' out watching further developements. I just love this stuff!

Default Welcome ...pull up a chair.

Nice pictures on your website, I know the feeling of coming home to post on these sites...but helping out is good for the soul. Plus you learn a lot from all the great ,knowledgeable folks out there.We can always set up a chair for another.

Wow, sorry guys even though progress has been slow I've been neglecting my updating. More pics and stories shortly.

Well we have done alot since the last posting. I was promoted at work and had lots of training to do. Im a manager at Home Depot now...go figure. All the drywall is up, and most of the compounding is done, still have a few spots to do. The walls have been primered once with Killz2, and are being touched up now. The can lights are in, as well as the exhaust fan, sconce boxes, GFCI outlets, and light switches. Its coming along although very slowly.

Entrance, wall on right is south.


South wall


East and North walls


North and West walls with partition, man I loooooooove that window!!

Next is the West wall and entrance


The faucets for the vanity and tub are the same.


The sconces...one on each side


The 40$ a gallon paint were using...dont mess up


Generally things are coming together, the wife has a job now, and she likes it. I was promoted and will recieve three raises over the next few months up to around 16.50-17.00 per hour, and I should have more time to work on this.

Lemme know what you think, and thanks for all the good comments and encouragement.

Congrats on the promotion and upcoming pay raises, and same to the wife on her new job.

The work is looking great. I see a plastic elec. box with Romex wiring and I'm jealous. Here in Chicago, code requires steel boxes and ridgid conduit. What a pain in the butt!

Don't work to hard over the holidays, and have a Very Merry Christmas! You've earned it.

Got the OSB and the drywall up on the dining room ceiling, yeah its greenboard in a needless area, but its all we had, and it was sunday so nowhere was open to get plain drywall.






Just a little bit more insulation to put up and we can hang drywall in the dinning room, and kinda get ready to do the kitchen, which we have decided to knock down another exterior wall and rebuild it how we want it. We also got the house wrap installed outside, and for now didnt cut out the windows, but thatll come. Things are coming together...we can kinda see the end of all this...

Buying the tile, and everything that goes with that tomorrow, and that project will be happening soon.

Ill keep with the updates as they come...should be painting the b-room some time this week.
