Let the drywall begin!

Happy Monday friends!  The last few weeks have been busy and it feels like we are making soooo much progress at the house!  The fact that drywall is going in right now fills me with JOY!  But before that commenced, Mr. Fixer installed our new insulation and we demo’d our old ceiling.  Originally we thought it would save us money to keep the old ceiling intact and just skim over it with mud, but our drywall guy recommended we actually put new drywall over it.  Since that obviously wouldn’t save us any money, we figured we might as well tear it out!  It caused a bit of a delay, but at least we enjoyed great company while we were at it! 🙂

Enjoy these picture updates!  By the time the drywall is all finished, we just might know what color to paint the nursery! 🙂

Hugs,

Mrs. Fab

Mr. Fixer framing out ceiling

Mr. Fixer is framing out the second part of our vaulted ceiling in the addition. We did this for two reasons — we weren’t a huge fan of the cedar paneling everywhere, plus we wanted to put some insulation up there to conserve energy.

 

Ceiling insulation - partial

Almost…

Ceiling insulation - complete

…done!


Wall insulation

Insulation around the house is complete! Plus we passed our inspection (of course!).

Collage - ceiling demo

Last weekend we had friends over to help with our ceiling demo. Guess what Mrs. Fab did all afternoon? 🙂

Look at that big smile on Mr. Fixer’s face?! We loaded up our 16′ trail with 6000 pounds of drywall and off we went (slowly)!

Scripture above doorway

A project I have been wanting to do for some time (before drywall!) — write scripture on the walls that pertained to each room/area of the house.

On Saturday we prepped for drywall installation (papering the floors, etc.) and managed to get the first row of sheetrock in before calling it a day. Thanks for your help Ryan!

My dad also drove down from Seattle to help Mr. Fixer! Couldn’t have done it without ya, Dad! 🙂

And here we are! Except the bathroom and a couple of closets, we finished installing all of the new ceiling in the main part of the house.
