Finally took the time to sort through all the pics I have to date. Since my last update we've re-done the cieling texture in the upstairs (popcorn just wasn't doing it for me), nearly finished the bathroom, and started carpeting.

That about sums it up, next weekend I'll be finishing up the carpet and grouting the tile.
