I had a fairly productive weekend! I was a little sick at the beginning but I got caught up on loads of sleep (16 hours friday night, not even exaggerating) and ended up getting quite a bit done today. I got the rest of the big pieces of drywall up. I still have to trim out the window openings and put up the metal corner guards but that ought to go fairly quickly. It turns out I suck at drywalling, you’ll see below. I have a whole lot of respect for the various trades. They make it look SO easy on HGTV! It will work though and I did it myself (and with help from my family but you know what I mean!), I’m proud of that :).
It’s sort of sad that now, with daylight savings time, I basically will not have any daylight to work by except on weekends. At the same time though, that’s kind of cool, I’m approaching the one year mark of when I started this project and going out to work on it in the dark and cold reminds me of how exciting it was and really is. It was SO cool last winter, it was an awesome winter project and still is :)! I used to go work on the cold hard metal frame of the dingy trailer I got off of Craigslist but now I am working on my house! It is amazing how far it’s come. I will miss the daylight but I will soon have the warm glow of my house lights to work by! And it won’t be nearly as cold!
Oh, I played with a few of these images in Pixlr…they are sorta dumb but I’m hoping to give a better idea of what is happening in some spots… I am now in LOVE with Pixlr, it’s free photoshop! 🙂
Here are some pictures in no particular order:
