A friend saw what we've been doing and said, "that remodel is a monster." Add to it the pace of the workers lately and it seems to be a slow-moving monster.
The last couple of days we've seen real progress, and I'll post pictures of them in a day or two, but I've got to get you caught up to date.
Here is the finished product of Drew's one-afternoon AC compressor screening project reported in our last post. The neighbors hopefully should not mind looking at this.
Also in our last post, the drywall was going up. It took quite a while and many boxes of mud.
But eventually it looked like this. These are stairs going to the upstairs suite.
The morning after the sheetrock was up, Drew and I pulled off one piece and sure enough
But dang doesn't he make a good construction worker?
and the decking on the master suite patio is partly on.
To keep an eye on the workers, I find things to do around the house. Our exterior paint job is not complete (going on 6 years now) because many of the windows are peeling badly, so I removed the old paint off one sill with our heat gun and prepped it for new paint.
So anyway, things were moving slowly along. Some of the trim arrived.
