Another dry spell w/o updates, work and school have been keeping me pretty busy.

At this point, the living room and extended bedroom have been primered and painted, most of the laminate flooring installed in the living room, and the upstairs bathroom project has begun.

This week is finals week, so I'm hoping to make some mad progress once those exams are out of the way.



Here is looking into the entry way where we had run some ductwork what seems like an eterntity ago:









Here is the progression of the living room/hallway area:

The flooring is too dusty to show all that well in the pics, but it's pretty good looking.

I know someone will probably ask about the underlay; I didn't cut corners, just for the kind of flooring with the underlay already built onto the back of the boards. Ease of installation FTW.



Looking into the bedroom we extended:

Moving upstairs to the new bathroom project:











I definitely have my hands full, but it's great to look back at the older pics and see the progression (two months of ownership in a couple days here!!!).

Finally took the time to sort through all the pics I have to date. Since my last update we've re-done the cieling texture in the upstairs (popcorn just wasn't doing it for me), nearly finished the bathroom, and started carpeting.


Here's a snapshot of the old ceiling cleared off:



Dad working on the texture:




Bathroom walled in and mostly sanded:











Shower:

.......and in the downstairs:

I cheated and did attached pad carpet, we'll see how it holds up:








And I had a change of heart on lighting and did a track light with warmer bulbs in the living room:




That about sums it up, next weekend I'll be finishing up the carpet and grouting the tile.

Good job, it looks very nice. I like the little window above the shower. You have the house, now all you need is a wife and lots of kids. LOL

Ha! No thanks, I have higher aspirations. I need a bigger house, huge garage, and a fleet of sports cars before I have kids.
