Even though the weather has been really cold, we’ve gotten a lot done over Christmas break. A lot of drywall has gone in and most of the first floor is almost ready for taping and mudding. Thank goodness for heat. We keep it around 55 degrees most of the time.
I’m glad that it has been cold for a while, because when it warms up the driveway turns to very slippery, greasy mud. I think that we are in store for that again this week. Can’t have everything!
Next up is
Finishing cabinet construction. Pantry is almost done and Kitchen is partly done.
Finish drywall in the Master Bedroom and Foyer.
Start taping and mudding and sanding (I HATE this part).
Begin tile work.
Decide on tile for all the boys’ baths (that ought to be interesting).
Decide on flooring. This has been a real struggle for me.
Get the other heating system installed upstairs when our HVAC guy isn’t on Emergency Call! This weather has kept him busy, but we aren’t in a hurry.
Finish the wood staining in the Great Room (windows) and seal.
