Three weeks ago my hubby took the week off to work on the house. Before he could start framing out the walls, he still had more demo work to do. So after an hours worth of work, this was what I saw…Iya-yaI! Luckily my hubby is a hard and fast worker because within a few hours the room was clean and cleared of the debris.
Unfortunately, we had to add a beam in downstairs since we have reworked a few of the rooms. So here is the hubby putting in a beam weighing a few hundred pounds all by himself. Crazy hubby that he is, he rigged a pully system to hoist up the beam and slide it into place.
The beam is in place, and now it is time to start framing.
A few days later we have a room! Yes, a teeny-tiny kids play room, but it’s a room and there are walls. Or at least they are walls to us. And they are beautiful!
Stairs…we have stairs! For a few years now we have been climbing a ladder to get upstairs. So unsafe, but safety surely has not come first in this renovation.
It may not look like much to all of you, but to this momma (and very proud wife)
this is huge! We have waited 6 1/2 years to see a living room and dining room evolve. And I can see it more and more each day.
There is something beautiful about a huge box of nails.
And a pile of new
So what’s on the list next?
Well, the upstairs floor joists are as level as they are going to get and it is time to lay down some plywood.
