Drywall

Drywall is going up this week. I can’t believe I have hallways and rooms.

These guys are amazing on stilts. He is on two boards over the stairs. And so……little C is now asking us for stilts for his next birthday :).

Looking out from the loft, the stairwell is in the left corner.

Today was a half day for the three big kids in school. We stopped by the house on the way home and the kids started playing ‘hide and go seek’. Cole and I were visiting with Jonathan the head drywall guy. They run a family business with Jonathan and his Brother and his Nephew Andrew and his Father Omar. (I can’t remember his brothers name 😞)

All of a sudden a man goes running through the great room. Jonathan says “was that my brother?” Now there is often running bodies at the house but they are usually our kids, not grown men. But we both looked and said “yep that was your brother”. Then went back to talking. About 20 seconds later we hear “ready or not here we come”. And all four of our kids came running into the great room on the hunt to find Jonathan’s brother. It was so sweet and so funny. And honestly how so much of this project has gone. Our subs have been so amazing.

My kids have had such a great experience meeting these hard working tradesmen. And slowly watching our home materialize. The dry wall has been such a huge change. Being able to walk down the hallways and into all the rooms. It’s been really fun for all of us.

And following Dad, carrying wood, always ready to help.

They started taping the drywall today. I think by Tuesday it will be time to start texturing the walls. They are going to make a few samples for me. Big decision!!! 😳.

Sorry for the crazy long post. And million pics of little man.

Thanks for following along our crazy journey.

    • I am loving how bright it is. I have spent time sitting in every room, imagining how it is going to feel. Now I am better able to wrap my head around lighting fixtures and tile and all the finishings. :). It was a pretty exciting week for all of us.
