So, our plan was that while Ryan was/is gone, Dad, Mom, Leah and I were/are going to work like crazy out there and try to get a bunch done for him before he gets back. And so far, the plan has been moving along just as we had planned! Dad got the ceiling of the living/dining/kitchen area all painted, Mom continues to work on the mudding and sanding, and Leah and I have been painting. Dad also went and picked up the flooring that Ryan and Ashley had picked out, and plans to pick up sometime soon the cabinets that they had picked out. But before posting the recent photos, here are a few photos that were taken a couple of weeks ago . . .
And since the time that the above photos were taken, the mudding and sanding was finished in the dining/kitchen/living room, the ceiling and the walls were primed, and the ceiling was painted as well. With all of that done, it was now time to paint the walls . . .
Leah and I had so much fun painting together and 'inspecting' each other's work . . . "it looks like there is a drip there . . . missed a spot here . . ." etc. :) It was so enjoyable working together!
Hours later all of the painting was finished in the living/kitchen/dining room, and it was break time!
Meanwhile, Dad arrived with his second load from town (the first was concrete for the pad in the crawlspace for the water heater), and the second was flooring! This was the first time that I had seen the flooring that Ryan and Ashley had picked out, and it is beautiful!
The little bedroom had become a 'catch all' for tools, trash, etc. so we cleaned it all out so we could put the flooring in it (and there was more put in the living room, too.) Now it is ready and waiting to be put down! I can hardly wait to see it all installed!
So, we ended our day out there with the house looking like this (except for the messiness :) we cleaned up the house before we left, too . . .
The kitchen and pantry (and just a note, we purposefully left the lower part underneath the window unpainted as that is where some of the cabinets are going and we wanted to save on paint! :)
It was so exciting to be able to get all of that painted, and now the flooring can begin! So that is what we will be working on next, and it should be a lot of fun!
