We Have Walls!

Drywall is one of those things that we could do ourselves, but it would take five time as long and the end results wouldn't be nearly as good as what the pros can do. So, two weeks ago, our drywall guys (who did our bedroom, master bathroom, and laundry room a year and a half ago) came back to finish the upstairs. They actually remembered our house, and were really excited to see what we'd done with the rooms since they'd last been here; their compliments and enthusiasm made us mentally re-hire them on the spot. What can I say? We're suckers for people who love our house as much as we do (or at least people who put on a good show about it!).

Pretty much since we moved in three years ago, we haven't had walls upstairs. First, we knocked down and moved all of the walls in the front of the house, and once those were rebuilt, we took down the walls in the back of the house to reconfigure that area. It's been a long time of creepy plastic sheeting, piles of 2x4s, and sawdust everywhere - it would have made a great set for a horror film! Anyway, to actually have the construction stage finished is huge, and we're really pleased with how it all turned out.

Hallway looking west

The office

And the guest bathroom

Isn't it starting to look like a real house (and less like a construction junkyard)? Stay tuned for painting details!
