Holy crap, we’re ready for drywall!

It has taken us a long time to get to this point. Specifically, 2 1/2 years since we bought the house, almost 2 years since we moved in and about 13 months since we started working on the upstairs (not counting the gut job we did a week after we bought it). As we mentioned before, we have the pressure of a 2nd kid on the way to push us to turn our 2 bedroom back into the 4 bedroom that it started as. And while we’re at it, we thought why not raise the ceiling and add a bathroom? In retrospect, it’s probably ideas like those that cause our projects to take so much longer than they feel like they should. Here’s a quick update of what I wrapped up during my “vacation” last week…

Chloe’s room. In the 2nd picture, you can see the cavity that will eventually house a pocket door, one of the greatest inventions of all time:



Bathroom. This room also gets a pocket door. I threw in and old picture so you can see how we stole some space out of Chloe’s room and the main room to create the bath. In that picture you can see the old closet doorway, the right side of which was where the dividing wall between rooms originally was.




Main room insulation and vapor barrier completed.  I didn’t take any pictures of the front room (the new baby’s), but it is also ready to go.


We can now start getting bids from drywallers.  We’re going to hire it out, because we want to finish sometime this year, not sometime this decade…
