Our Dream House


Bought 35 sheets of purple board yesterday along with 12 gallons of primer.
Need some more glass tile to go down the one side of the tile.

Son picked a color for his room and is going to buy the paint for it.

Our Dream House


Been a rather crazy week! My computer crashed last Monday so I did not get to share with all of you what happened on Tuesday.
I was in the bucket truck taping off the windows and doors on the house to hit it with the second coat of stain. Well I got to the last window on the south side. I saw there was a couple areas between the logs that needed to be sealed again. I got the stuff to do it and went up and sealed it all up. No problem. As I was just starting to tape the last window the brakes failed on the bucket truck. It started rolling down hill towards the coulee. I went to grab the controls to see if I could drop it far enough for me to jump safely, but before I could touch them the bucket slammed into one of the logs. So I missed rushing my hand.
The hit caused the wheels to turn and I was no longer headed for the coulee but now the propane tank in the yard. Luckily the truck stopped before hitting the tank.
I got down and have refused to go up.
Hubby is going to finish staining the house.

After all of this I went inside and got half the upstairs ceiling primed. I'm off work tomorrow so going to see if I can get the rest of the ceiling done and see how many walls I can get done and find out how much primer I need to get to finish the walls up stairs.

I'm glad you're alright logluvr! I can see why you wouldn't want to go back up there.

Had some trouble looking out the west windows, so I just stayed away from them.
Got the utility room, 2 closets and half the pantry completely done. Got the ceiling in the guest bathroom done.
I was just plain lazy on Tuesday and did not work on the house. Have this Sunday off and plan to get the ceiling done. Hubby started putting the Roxuel up in the pony wall. Boy could feel a big difference in the basement.

Trying to decide something.
Use Hardi board to put the tile for the wall in the bathrooms or use the purple board?
The person at the tile store said we can use the purple board but the friend who did my drywall said to use the Hardi board for better stability.
Suggestions?

Hardi board for tiled areas and purple for the balance.

Other then above the logs and the inside corners I got the entire house primed for paint!!!!
Have tomorrow off so going to see what I can get done. Have a gallon and a half of primer left.
A friend told me to paint my ceiling an off white instead of a bright white because living the country our ceilings get pretty dusty.

Hubby told me today we are going to run out of Roxuel that he is putting in the pony wall. That is R30 so might have to get a couple of bundles of R15 and double them up. After what happened at HD last time I am not going there for anything.

Well messed up both my knees. So son has been given the job of finishing the primer. Too hard to climb a ladder.
Hubby picked up the guest shower and doors!!!!!!! Picked up 4 more gallons of paint for the ceiling. Also the last of the tile!!!

I'm a little loopy today after spending all day in the dentist chair yesterday, but doing the best I can to get things going.

No idea how this happened but we have 4 rooms getting painted different blue.

I usually don't usually go to the dentist to fix my knees. No wonder you're loopy.

No progress pics?

Sorry no pics yet. Will see what I can do today. Wore braces on both knees for 2 weeks. They are feeling better.

Hubby got the pot filler put in the kitchen. Got the last of the glass tile so I can hopefully get that finished then grouted. Going to be gone for 3 days for EMS training this weekend.

Got the living room finished painting. Going to go into town tomorrow and get some more paint and some hardi board for the bathroom floors.
Hubby got our bathroom sheeted. He put the kids tub down to see where it will set.
Now I was concerned because it will be setting right on the concrete so we are going to put down some great stuff where the bottom will sit so it creates a barrier between the tub and concrete.
Getting closer to being done!
