Sometimes doing all that painting and trim tires you out! Misty takes a deserved rest…
I haven't posted about the addition in a while, so I had better do so.
We had to cut holes in the window areas to breathe while we were painting. The effect is kind of like weird eyes:
Go forward a week and you can see we have fresh, unstained siding and windows:
Lots of work going on inside, as well. However, we're waiting for a few things to get finished, we'll get the drywall and texture spots we discovered fixed, then we paint and finish floors. One room is done, though: carpet, trim, door, and all!
Snowball is getting to be a big cat, but she still manages to find a way to sneak under furniture looking for treats that may have escaped.
On Friday our team gave our final presentation for the Capstone class I've been working on these past months. This is the end of my march towards a MS in Management with a focus on managing high tech companies. Capstone puts us through the process of developing business, marketing, and financial plans for a startup company. It was quite a bit of work!
Alana's snow man eventually survived yesterday's melt.
Ryan, because he brought his inside, wasn't as lucky.
Sometimes Snowball thinks it's fine to sit in the window above the sink even though she's been told repeatedly that she's not allowed on the counter. Does she think we believe her teleportation story?
The kids finally get a snow day, although I think it's going to melt off before mid-day.
View from high in the hangar:
Yesterday the carpet was installed, so we are moving forward rapidly on having a home office. Misty is doing trim today while I finish my work for my degree and the desk is expected a week from now.
Sheetrock was hung in most of the addition yesterday as well, so the house is a total disaster with most of our stuff piled high in the living room. Mudders and tapers are expected Monday.
The cats are freaking out over the constant changes.
I got a comment asking about how the house looked before the addition, so here you-all go.
Looking through my pictures archive I discovered my .357 picture was corrupt, so I fixed that. Then I noticed I had never posted a picture of the “pimp gun” here:
And it can't be a pimp gun without a Miami Vice caliber:
Obviously this gun is used primarily for special occasions. Shooting a lot of 10mm is rough on the gun.
Okay, perhaps I'm overexcited about having a new entry in the front of the house, but I like it a great deal better than the old one.
And, finally, an inside view. The cats are loving the exploration of a new space.
Sheetrock by Friday. No news yet on windows and siding. Carpet for the office and the kids rooms next week!
