People...We Have WALLS!

Things are rolling along here...
we have walls.
As I write this post, I have workers floating...
They're singing as they work.
I like it.
It all started with insulation...lots of it.
We're on Pier and Beam, so the underneath of the house will be insulated.
Sheetrock delivery.
110 sheets.
Matry liked our new "couch".
I don't know where she comes up with this stuff.
We get such great light in this house.
You can see where the old kitchen ended.
That dark rectangle at the bottom left was where the original sink cabinet was.
There's a strip of OSB to transition the old with the new.
It was very interesting watching these guys work.
There are two windows on this wall.
They have a zip type of tool, something like a
Dremel I guess and that's what they use to cut the openings.

Next was the taping and mudding...
Things are starting to look "finished".
They'll sand next...
that will be a huge mess!
After that's done though, I'll be able to clean my house!!
At this stage in the process, cleaning feels like a losing battle.
Most of the walls will be textured.
I'll install cabinets as soon as the walls dry and get the granite folks out to template my countertops.
We're using a family owned company located here in Schertz and they've really been great to work with!
The fun stuff starts soon!

  1. This looks pretty fun already! I love when the sheetrock goes up because that when you can see the forms of the new spaces for the first time. And it usually looks bigger for some reason. I'm so excited for you!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
