House Update

So things at the house are still busy…just not much new to tell you about.

The dry wall guy has been here on and off for all of the week.  Here’s my kitchen…


Here’s looking in from the dining room into the office and living room.


Slow and steady it’s getting all done.

We were in to the house this afternoon and talked with him.  The plan is for him to have it all done by Christmas.  Ya-hoo.  I’m super excited about that!!

We debated and debated and decided to go with knock down on the walls for texture.  The old part of the house has it so it makes sense for the new part to have it.  Sadly the old part was done pretty poorly so it need to be redone to look right.  That added extra money on to the final bill but it’s something that in the end I think we’ll be glad that we went with.

We also opted for primer to be sprayed so we don’t have to worry about that when we’re painting.  In the end it will be a big time and cost saver I think.

The biggest joy for me though….Hubby is having the dry wall guy paint my ceiling for me.  Can you say happy???  I am very happy.  I HATE painting ceilings….if fact, I’m not a huge fan of painting at all so this is extra wonderful for me.

So the 26th begins my days and days of non ending painting.  Right now the plan is to get the kitchen done first so Hubby can start on the floors….then next I’ll be painting the upstairs part of the addition.  We don’t have flooring in yet up there so we want the walls painted so flooring can go in.

For the most part, starting the 26th I’ll be working full time at the house until we move in.  There will be lots for me to do….We’ve had people offer to help previously and we’ve not taken the extra help as we never really knew what we’d we working on but anyone who wants sure is welcome to come anytime after Christmas.  There are LOTS of jobs that need to get done!!

  1. Hi Jo, love hearing about the house. Hey you guys should have some painting parties and invite your friends, feed them and it will get done in no time. But look at this way, you won’t have to paint for a while again.

    Merry christmas to you and your family,

  2. Closer & closer. You’re wise to get the primer sprayed on, it won’t take long & will save you so much time in the painting. My bit of worthless advice is to be really careful in your volunteers for painting. Some people can’t do a good job of painting to save their lives. About the only ones I’d let help me are my daughter and daughter-in-law. They’re both really good painters. I can’t wait to see pictures of your completely finished house.

  3. I love the up dates and good news all around. I am not much of a painter but if I lived closer I would sure help out one way or another, but I think maybe Georgia is a little far away.
