Our house is a traditional ranch with an unusual basement so the living room is open to the dining room which is open to the kitchen. :)
My new favorite tool is a sheetrock lift/jack!! My MIL and I were able to put some sheets up by ourselves because this thing did the heavy lifting!! We rented it for a couple days and saved ourselves a lot of pain!
Anyway, tomorrow should be back to normal with housework, sewing and crafting!! (and not necessarily in that order!! LOL)
Also, earlier in the week I helped my husband with insulation and wiring for those areas so it's been almost a week of "housework"!! Haha!
Anyway, here are some pictures of the work. You will have to overlook my appearance, I don't look good with a bandanna on my head but after washing my hair 3 times to get the sheetrock dust out of it, I didn't care!!
Behind my DH, you can see the sheetrock lift, if you need to put sheetrock on a ceiling it is definitely worth it!!
My FIL working on the vent.
My MIL with the second favorite tool of the week - my dremel!! It was great cutting out outlet boxes and circles for the vents! I got it last year as part of my birthday present from my DH (the other part was a sledgehammer!!).
Me screwing in the last piece of sheetrock on the ceiling. Again, ignore mt appearance.
The added dining room area and on the other side will be the mud/bathroom.
The added kitchen area and behind it is the laundry room. We weren't able to sheetrock all of those areas because of plumbing that needs to be done first. I am extremely excited about all of the areas but my favorite is the added kitchen area. It will double the size of my kitchen. :) Also, having the washer and dryer out of the basement will be nice!
Well, have a lovely and blessed Sunday!
